From Mom’s Recipe Box for Handwritten Recipe Wednesday: Double Pistachio Pudding Cake

For the big green holiday this week, St. Patrick’s Day, I pulled out my Mom’s recipe box. She is still alive, thank God, but I have taken her recipes. Ha! This was actually a recipe from a neighbor that my mom copied.

1 lg. pkg. yellow or white cake mix (no pudding)

4 eggs (no one said this was healthy)

1 c. club soda

1/4 c. oil

1/2 c. chopped walnuts

1/4 tsp. almond

1/2 tsp. vanilla

(13×9 pan 350F 40 – 45 mins.) Cool 15 mins.


1 box pistachio pudding mix

1 1/2 c. cold milk

1 envelope dream whip (I think you’ll have to use Cool Whip now from the container)

Blend; whip 4 – 6 mins.

Divide into 2 layers.

Mom also has a clipping from a Jello magazine advertisement for something similar. Has anyone made this one?

    Oh My Gosh! Until I read this recipe, I had forgotten that Dream Whip came in an envelope. When I was in 6th grade, we made a recipe using that product in Home Economics class :) (waves of nostalgia)

    You found it! This is the recipe for Watergate cake. It came out around the time President’s Nixon’s advisers went to jail. I have been wanting to make this again, I haven’t had it for thirty years Thank you for posting this.
