Frosted Pistachio Bread recipe on { lilluna.com } So soft and delicious! Recipe includes a box of yellow cake mix, pistachio pudding mix, & sour cream drizzled with a yummy glaze and chopped pistachio's.

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!

    Lil' Luna

    Thanks so much for letting me know!! We love this bread, too!

I have this in the oven right now. Why oh why is the batter SO SO THICK? I follow the instructions exactly. I’ve made banana bread many times before and never was the batter thick like this. Hope it turns out well.

    Lil' Luna

    How did it turn out? I’m not sure why it was so thick. I hope you liked it!
