Pistachio Cupcakes

As prepared by Girl Who Ate Everything,

I think it’s safe to say I’ve eaten my fair share of cupcakes throughout my life. I would call myself somewhat of a connoisseur. I can usually tell when a cupcake is from a box or from scratch. Not that I prefer one or the other, but there’s definitely a distinct difference. This cupcake had me fooled. With a couple of key ingredients, the cupcakes are transformed into something out of this world.

Hands down, these Pistachio Cupcakes have the best texture of any cupcake I’ve ever eaten, from scratch or from a box. They're incredibly moist and fluffy and almost melt in your mouth.

Pistachio Cupcake Recipe

The secret ingredients? Club soda and instant pistachio pudding. Together they make the perfect combination for this ultra moist cupcake, without being soggy.

The kicker is the light and dreamy frosting. All you have to do is make some fresh whipped cream and fold in some more instant pistachio pudding for a light and dreamy frosting. This works well with all kinds of instant flavored puddings…imagine the possibilities.

Christmas Tree Cupcakes

These unique cupcakes are festive for the holiday season and can even be made into little Christmas trees with a few sprinkles and some fondant stars to top them off. Enjoy!
