Pistachio Pound Cake
The BEST Pistachio Pound Cake
I love and good pound cake and this Pistachio Pound Cake is one of the best I’ve ever eaten! It is so light and full of great pistachio flavor. I took one bite and knew I was in trouble. SO good! The almond glaze really puts this over the top. We served this with a dollop of fresh whipped cream and a sprig of mint. This would be a great dessert to take to a potluck. I guarantee there won’t be any leftovers!
How To Make Pistachio Sour Cream Pound Cake from Scratch
This Pistachio Pound Cake is actually very easy to make from scratch. It takes less than 10 minutes in your KitchenAid mixer.
Start with beating the butter and sugar until it is light and fluffy. Next, add in the eggs. I like to crack each egg into a small bowl before adding them to the cake. This way I can make sure they didn’t go bad and get out any shell that might have fallen into the mixture.
After the eggs are mixed in, alternate the flour and pudding mixture with sour cream. Finally, stir in the chopped pistachios. Pour the batter into a 10-inch tube pan and bake. Easy Peasy!
Once the cake has cooled, you pour a quick almond icing on top. The dripping almond icing really puts this Pistachio Pound Cake over the top! I sprinkled the top with some additional chopped pistachios. I thought it made it look pretty.
Store the cake in an air-tight container. It does not need to be refrigerated.
Can I Freeze Pistachio Pound Cake?
Absolutely! You can freeze any leftover pound cake for later. I like to slice the cake into individual pieces, wrap in plastic wrap and store in a freezer ziplock bag. Great for a sweet treat later!
You could even freeze the whole cake if you want to make it in advance. I would recommend freezing the whole cake without icing. When you are ready to serve, thaw the cake completely and add the almond icing.
Delicious Pistachio Pound Cake with Drippy Icing
We both thought this Pistachio Pound Cake was incredible. I shared the cake with a friend and they loved it too! This cake is great for parties and potlucks or Tuesday! We topped the cake with some fresh whipped cream, but it is equally delicious with vanilla ice cream! Give this a try the next time you need an easy and delicious dessert. I promise you won’t be disappointed!!
