My family does basically the same cake. We use white mix, 1/2 c. water, 1/2 c. milk, 1/2 c. oil, 5 eggs and 2 pkgs of instant pudding. Makes for a pretty green cake that is heavy, moist and has a few nuts for texture. For an icing we use heavy whipping cream, sugar, and a 3rd pkg of instant pistachio pudding. It's our classic St. Patrick's Day cake.

I ask my wife to make this for me and she did, and it was great very moist. Thanks for the recipe, this is a keeper.

Simply delicious. Easy recipe that can be mixed in less than 10 minutes. Great with a butter-based frosting.

Very nice combo. I made this for a Christmas work party and loved that it was green and festive. With one package of pistachio pudding, it is only a hint of flavor. I think next time I might try two packages to see if there is a stronger pistachio taste. Thanks for posting.

It's okey but not to die for. The texture was really great though. Overall, my daughter loved it so will still be making it again. Thanks!

My 6 year old son made his with help from me of course. We both loved it. My husband didn't like it so well, but that was because of the nuts. We might make this again. Only reason we wouldn't is I am gluten intolerant, and my husband won't eat it so that just leaves the whole cake for a 6 year old. We might try it with different flavors for the others. Thanks for a great recipe!

I really liked this. The texture was great and the flavor although subtle was perfect. Will definately be playing around with flavors on this one. Thanks!!

I think this cake tasted really really artificial, the texture was really good but I wouldn't give any credit to the taste

THE BEST EVER!!! My Grandma made this cake for years. She would also sprinkle with icing sugar or drizzle with a simple icing.

My mom always made this cake when I was little. It's easy to throw together, it's green (a fun memory for a little kid) and it's delicious!
