A Chocolate Pistachio Bundt Cake For Super Bowl XLIII

I wanted two things on Super Bowl Sunday, a victory for the Pittsburgh Steelers and a Chocolate Pistachio Bunt Cake. As it turned out, I got both.


This is how you make the Chocolate Pistachio Bundt Cake....

Combine 1 box yellow cake mix, 1/2 cup water, 4 eggs and 1 1/2 tablespoon oil in a large bowl.


Mix in 1 1/2 box pistachio pudding mix.


Add 1/2 pint sour cream and blend to moisten.


Beat 2 minutes at medium speed.


Pour about 3/4 of the batter into a well greased bundt cake pan. If you're so inclined, as I was, this is the point where you add 1/4 ounce Moroccan blonde hash.


Add 3/4 cup chocolate syrup to remaining batter. Mix well. Pour over batter in pan.


Bake at 350 degrees about 1 hour or until tooth pick comes out clean. Remove from pan. Cool on wire rack for 10 minutes.


Next comes the icing....

Use remaining 1/2 box pudding to mix in with a can of Betty Crocker icing.


Add pistachios and chocolate chips to the icing.


Spread on cake. There you have it.

You are becoming quite a cook! Too bad you couldn't have delivered a slice to each of our homes!

You're a man of many talents I see! I used to love baking cakes. Pistachio is one of my favorite ice-creams. Um, um, good with a slice of your cake..
