  • 2 3.4 oz. boxes pistachio instant pudding mix
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/8 cup water
  • 1 cup sour cream


  • Mix ingredients together until well combined. Set aside.
  • Grease 2 regular size loaf pans and sprinkle some sugar and cinnamon (I use 2 TB sugar and 1 tsp. cinnamon) on the inside.
  • Pour half the batter into each pan. Bake at 350 for 45 minutes. Let cool.
  • Combine 2 cups powdered sugar, 2 TB melted butter, 1 tsp. almond extract, and 1 tsp. vanilla to make a glaze. Add a few tablespoons of milk, until it's the consistency that you like.
  • Drizzle glaze over bread and sprinkle with chopped pistachios. Serve and enjoy!
