Back in my previous life, when I taught special education, we would make this cake every year for St. Patrick’s Day.
The students would love it, because it looks like a normal bundt cake until,
you cut into it and it’s green!
This cake is so moist and delicious. The original recipe calls for a full cup of oil, but I used half a cup of oil and half a cup of applesauce. Partially because I ran out of oil and I’m lazy and partially because I wanted to be a little healthier!
Happy St. Patrick’s Day my internet friends!

- Pour into prepared pan and cook for 45-50 minute or until the cake tests done.
I really can not believe that March is almost halfway over! This year has really been flying by!
My kids are already on spring break, and I kid you not I was taken aback when by daughter told me on Friday that they didn’t have school for two weeks. It really snuck up on me!
One thing we can do over the break is make these cookies! They are super easy and so yummy! They can really be customizable for any holiday, just change up the sprinkles. I found these cute shamrocks at my local cake store.
I do have grip about the sprinkles you can find at the local box stores. Why do they go right from Valentine’s Day to Easter? Doesn’t St. Patricks Day deserve some love? I think so.
Anywho, make these cookies. You will be glad you did.
