When it comes to the classic Jell-O one of my favorite flavors has always been pistachio. I know, I’m kind of a freak. Don’t get me wrong, I love chocolate but there is just something about the pistachio that is pretty fabulous too. When I saw this recipe for pistachio bread that called for my favorite tasty green pudding I knew I had to give it a try. I served this bread as a brunch item but with it’s cake base it could easily be a dessert. It ended up super moist, fluffy, and had just the right amount of nutty pistachio flavor. My four-year-old son got a kick out of making and eating green bread. It is so easy to make that I recommend putting the kiddos in the kitchen and letting them help. Such a fun recipe to make together!
15 oz box yellow cake mix
1/4 c oil
3/4 c water
3.4 oz package instant pistachio Jell-O pudding, unprepared
1 c sour cream
10 drops green food coloring
1 tsp almond extract
1/2 c pistachios or pecans, chopped
- Preheat oven to 350º.

- Mix together all ingredients in a large bowl until well combined.

- Cool 10 minutes and remove from bread pans.
- Allow to cool an additional 15 minutes or more before slicing.

It’s a wet batter, made my own white cake mix (never do box ingredients) still in oven. Checked it at 43 mins and still very wet, so added another 12 mins.
Is the 3/4 cup of water correct?
Maybe it’s a typo since it’s next to the pudding size… 1/8th cup instead
Nope. The recipe is correct as written. I used 3/4 cup of water. You need a lot of moisture for the box of cake mix.
This one of our favorites, we make this recipe into muffins. Granddaughter’s favorite.
