Pam’s famous pistachio cake is a fan favorite here at The Agent! We ask her to make it every chance we get. Fluffy cake, sweet pineapple, and dreamy whipped topping make this pistachio cake a crowd pleaser. Try it at your next summer get-together!

Pistachio Cake Ingredients:

      • 1 box yellow cake mix
      • 1/2 cup oil
      • 4 eggs
      • 2 boxes of instant pistachio pudding
      • 1 1/3 cups water
      • 1 can crushed pineapple in juice (not syrup)
      • 1 package Dream Whip (box comes with two packages)
      • 1 1/2 cups milk
      • 1 container of Cool Whip
      • Chopped pistachios (if desired)


  1. Make the cake by combining cake mix, 1/2 cup oil, 4 eggs, 1 box instant pistachio pudding and 1 1/3 cups water in a bowl. Beat at medium speed for 2 minutes. Bake at 350 degrees for 35-40 minutes. The cake is done with a toothpick comes out clean.
  2. While the cake is cooked but still hot, poke fork holes in cake and pour strained pineapple juice over the cake.
  3. Spread pineapple over the cake.
  4. Cover and let cool completely.
  5. Meanwhile, beat 1 package of Dream Whip, 1 box of instant pistachio pudding and 1 1/2 cups of milk together for at least 5 minutes on high speed. You want the mixture to be very thick, making peaks with the beater.
  6. Spread the mixture over the completely cooled cake.
  7. Spread the Cool Whip over the top of the cake and sprinkle with nuts if desired.
