Pistachio pound cake

I tried the recipe for the Meyer lemon pound cake and it was delicious so I thought I'd get creative with it. Using the Meyer lemon pound cake recipe but omitting the lemon juice and extract, I added a box of sugar free pistachio pudding mix to the batter. The batter was pretty thick so I added 1/3 cup of sugar free vanilla syrup to it. Baked at 350 for 45 min. While it was cooling I whipped up some pistachio frosting (softened cream cheese, butter, Splenda, cream, and dry pistachio pudding mix). When the cake was cooled I cut it into thick slices and frosted it thickly with the frosting, then cut each slice into 3 pieces. It's so rich that one or 2 pieces satisfies my sweet tooth. Dh loved it too and he is very picky. There are an endless amount of combinations to try. Next I'm going to try pineapple. I'll put some unsweetened frozen pineapple chunks in the chopper till it is crushed pineapple thickness and add SF pineapple syrup to the batter. Frost it with sweetened whipped cream. To make chocolate add 1 box sf chocolate pudding mix and 1/3 cup of sf chocolate syrup to the batter. Frost with a cream cheese frosting with cocoa powder added. The box of dry pistachio pudding mix added 9 carbs to the count. Have no idea what the carb count was for the frosting because I didn't measure,just used the mix and taste method.

Glad you liked the lemon version! Your pistachio version DOES sound good! Bet it was a pretty color, too. Can you post a pic?
