Pistachio cream cheese Bundt cake

Recipe adapted from Duncan Hines

Serves about 10

pistachio cream cheese bundt


For the cake: 

  • 1 box yellow cake mix
  • 1 3.4 ounce box pistachio pudding mix
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/2 cup plain Chobani Greek yogurt
  • 4 ounces cream cheese
  • 1/2 cup canola oil
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon

For the glaze: 

  • 4 ounces cream cheese
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 3 - 5 tablespoons light cream


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Liberally grease a nonstick Bundt pan.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, beat the cake mix, pudding, eggs, Greek yogurt, cream cheese, oil and cinnamon until fully mixed.
  3. Pour the mixture into the prepared Bundt pan and smooth over with a spatula. Bake for about 45 - 55 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean. Let cool completely before you remove from the Bundt pan.
  4. While the cake cools, prepare the glaze by beating the cream cheese, powdered sugar, vanilla and light cream until a liquid glaze forms. Add the additional liquid if it is still too thick. Pour the glaze over the cake and serve.
