RE: A Warm & Cozy St Patrick's Day Meal

Hi Myrna,

Welcome to the club my Friend. I made a note of something important just the other day, but then I forgot where I put the note!

Speaking of going to the grocery store, I got this Cake recipe in an email from Betty Crocker today and since it's appropriate for St. Patrick's Day, I thought that I would share it with you all.

Ice Cream Celebration Cake

Ingredients

Cake

1 box Betty Crocker™ SuperMoist™ devil’s food cake mix
1 box (4-serving size) chocolate instant pudding and pie filling mix
4 eggs
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1 cup Irish cream liqueur
1 cup sour cream

Irish Creme Frosting

1 cup butter, softened
4 oz (half of 8-oz package) cream cheese, softened
3 cups powdered sugar
1/4 cup Irish cream liqueur
1 teaspoon vanilla

Chocolate Glaze

4 oz bittersweet baking chocolate, chopped
1/2 cup whipping cream
1/4 cup light corn syrup
2 teaspoons vanilla
1/3 cup sliced almonds, toasted

Directions

Heat oven to 350°F (325°F for dark or nonstick pans). Spray 2 (9-inch) round cake pans with cooking spray.

In large bowl, beat all cake ingredients with electric mixer on medium speed 5 minutes, scraping bowl occasionally, until well blended. Pour batter into pans. Bake 35 to 45 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 10 minutes; remove cakes from pans to cooling racks. Cool completely.

In large bowl, beat butter and cream cheese with electric mixer on medium speed until light and fluffy. Reduce speed to low. Add powdered sugar, 1 cup at a time, beating until blended. Add 1/4 cup liqueur and 1 teaspoon vanilla; beat until frosting is smooth and spreadable.

Place 1 cake layer on serving plate; spread with one-third of the frosting. Top with second layer. Frost side and top of cake with thin layer of frosting to seal in crumbs. Refrigerate 30 minutes. Frost cake with remaining frosting.

Place chopped chocolate in small bowl. In small saucepan, heat whipping cream over medium heat until bubbles form around edge. Pour warm cream over chocolate; let stand 1 minute. Stir with whisk until chocolate is melted. Add corn syrup and 2 teaspoons vanilla. Stir until smooth. Let stand 10 minutes or until thickened.

Pour glaze on top of cake, letting some glaze drip down side. Sprinkle almonds around edge of cake. Store in refrigerator.

Have A Great Terrific Thursday,

Phil

    Hi Pat,

    Thanks for stopping by and thanks for the great recipe. I also make this with Kale and sometimes I sub out half of the potatoes with parsnips.

    Have A Great Week My Friend,

    Phil

    Here's another one that came to me in an email today from Betty Crocker that is perfect for your St. Paddy's Day celebration. This simple recipe uses Green Giant™ Steamers™ veggies and Betty Crocker™ mashed potatoes to make this hearty and delicious slow-cooker Shepherd’s Pie even easier. Serves 4.

    1 can (10.75 oz) Campbell's low-sodium tomato soup
    1 teaspoon garlic powder
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1/4 teaspoon pepper
    1 bag (11 oz) Green Giant™ Steamers Valley Blend™ frozen vegetables
    4 cups water
    6 tablespoons unsalted butter or margarine
    1 1/2 cups milk
    2 pouches (4.7 oz each) Betty Crocker™ Homestyle creamy butter mashed potatoes Chopped fresh herbs, if desired
    Directions

    Serve warm sprinkled with herbs

    Have A Terrific Week,

    Phil
