Happy St. Patricks Day.

HAPPY ST. PATRICKS DAY!


MAY THE LUCK OF THE IRISH BE WITH YOU
WHETHER YOU ARE IRISH OR NOT




A little rainbow cake for desert tonight. My rainbow colors are a bit muted because I used a swiss meringue buttercream instead of the traditional american buttercream. All that butter changes the colors up a bit but I think it still looks pretty.

This cake is a simple pistachio cake made with a Duncan Hines cake mix and pistachio pudding. Simple but tasty.

Recipe:
1 box of yellow cake
1 pistachio pudding
4 eggs
1/2 cup oil
1/2 chopped pistachios
1 cup sour cream.

Grease and flour  2- 8 inch pans and pre heat oven to 350.
Mix all dry together. Mix all wet ingredients then combine with the dry.
Combine well.
Pour evenly into your pans and bake 50-60 minutes. I usually start checking at 40 minutes. All ovens vary always best to double check with a tooth pick inserted in the center. If it comes out clean you know they are done.

This cake is great on its own or even dusted with powdered sugar.
This one I happen to use swiss meringue buttercream because I like its light flavor and texture. But you could also use whip cream too. It's just a good tasting cake anyway you like it.

ENJOY
