Pistachio Mini Loaves

Sour cream makes these green-hued breads moist and delicious. They are wonderful for any occasion, but especially appropriate for Christmas or St. Patrick's Day. The little loaves have a pistachio flavor, light cake-like texture and crunchy topping.


five - 5 3/4 x 3 x 2-inch loaves (25 servings)


1 (18.25 ounce) package yellow cake mix
1 (3.4 ounce) package instant pistachio pudding mix
1 cup sour cream
4 large eggs
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1/4 cup water
3/4 cup chopped pecans
3 tablespoons brown sugar
2 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon


Preheat oven to 350°F (177°C). Grease five 5 3/4 x 3 x 2-inch loaf pans with cooking spray.

In a mixing bowl, combine cake and pudding mixes. Add sour cream, eggs, oil and water; beat until blended. Pour into prepared loaf pans. Combine the pecans, brown sugar and cinnamon; sprinkle over batter.

Bake for 35 to 40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pans to wire cooling racks.
