Happy St. Paddy’s Day! A quick&easy recipe for you!

Remember to wear green, or you’ll be pinched!

There are many, many recipes on the web, to make for St. Patrick’s Day. Some, more traditional than others.  Since green is the colour associated with Ireland, I added a natural green colouring to a tasty treat.

Even if you do not celebrate this festival, you can still bake this cake, any other day of the year.  It is quick and easy (don’t you just love that?!) and can be adapted to suit your tastes – you get to play with your food.

  1. Thanks so much, DesleyJane, to you too 🙂 I know a lot of people are already celebrating, even though the festival only falls on the 17th ;p
    I’m still finding ways of presenting my ingredients, so thanks for noticing and liking the new look!
