Frosted Pistachio Bread

My husband loves Pistachios!

His favorite pudding is pistachio.

His favorite nuts are pistachios.

His favorite Blue Bell Ice Cream flavor is Pistachio Almond.

Pretty much, if it has Pistachios, he LOVES it!! I guess I can’t blame him because the flavor is delicious and isn’t as “nutty” as you may imagine it would taste like. In fact, I feel like I really can’t describe a pistachio flavor taste, other than it being straight up delicious!

It was some time last year that my mom said she wanted to try a Pistachio Bread knowing very well that Lorin would love it, and HE did. Problem was… we all loved it, so Lorin may not have gotten as much as he’d like. 😉

The best part about this bread is there is no yeast involved, which means it is pretty easy!
