St. Paddy's Day Cake

This is one of my favorites to make for St. Patrick's Day. What is a holiday with out a dessert? LifeAsMom.com is having her Ultimate Recipe Swap this Thursday focusing on St. Patrick's Day cuisine. Be sure to check it out.

St. Paddy's Day Bundt Cake

One box yellow cake mix
one small box french vanilla pudding
1/2 cup hot water
1/2 cup canola oil
1/4 cup Bailey's Irish Cream Liquer
6 drops green food coloring
4 eggs (no white thingies)
1/2 cup sour cream

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Combine dry ingredients. Mix. Add hot water, and mix. Add oil and mix. Add one egg at a time, mixing between each addition. Once combined fold in sour cream.

Spray the bottom and sides of a bundt pan. Sprinkle a little sugar around the bottom. Spoon cake batter into the bundt pan evenly. Sprinle the top with a little sugar. Place in the oven and bake 35 to 45 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Allow cake to cool. Remove from pan and place cake on a plate. Dust with powder sugar.

Serve with fresh whipped cream and some green sprinkles.

Hey LifeasMOM readers, meet my kid sister! She had a bad experience with an egg once, so she removes that white string "thingy" from every egg she uses.

Yeah, she has issues. She is related to me, after all.

Love ya, James.

I wondered about that white thingy comment. Sounds delicious. I'm hungry just reading it.

Sounds good!! I also have a similar recipe with Irish Whiskey and you make a glaze instead of whipped cream... adding the liquor with powdered sugar and drizzling over... I'm going to give yours a try! Thanks for sharing!!
