St. Patrick’s Day Pistachio Cake

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!
