Since it's National Bundt Pan Day, I thought I would whip up this family favorite - Pistachio Bundt Cake. It is also national clean out your refrigerator day, but I am opting for the bundt cake instead.
This cake is a quick and easy cake you can throw together for any occasion and it tastes completely homemade and delicious. It uses a cake mix so it makes it easy peasy. I think the addition of almond extract to any cake puts it over the top.
This is a greenish colored cake so it's great for those green holidays like St. Patty's Day or Christmas. You can add green food coloring to make it even more green. I leave it all natural and really you can make it anytime like National Bundt Pan Day or just because my son Andrew loves it day - lol.
Did I mention as I am writing this the cake is baking and the aroma of vanilla, almond and pistachio in the air is exquisite!
