Pineapple Pistachio Cake Recipe - Great for 4th of July Parties

I have been making this cake for years and it is definitely a family favorite. It's cool and moist, so it's really great for warm weather parties or even just as an everyday treat. Even though the cake is green, it is still a hit on the 4th of July. Enjoy!

Pineapple Pistachio Cake



  • 1 box Yellow Cake Mix without pudding

  • 1 cup water

  • 1/2 cup oil

  • 4 eggs

  • 1 box instant pistachio pudding

  • 20 can crushed pineapple with juice


  • 1 package of Dream Whip (1 - 2.6 oz pkg, both envelopes)

  • 1 box instant pistachio pudding

  • 1-1/2 cups milk


Preheat oven to 350 degree (F) oven.

Mix and then beat for 2 minutes the cake mix, water, oil, eggs, and 1 box of pudding. Pour into a greased and floured 9x13 inch pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 35 to 40 minutes or until cthe cake springs back when touched in the center.

After removing cake from the oven, poke the cake all over the top with tines of a dinner fork. Pour the pineapple with juice over the top of the cake. Cool for 1 hour.

Beat the topping ingredients until stiff. Frost the cake. Refrigerate after frosting.

Cool and delicious!
