Celebrating a Holiday

My mother loved to make every holiday special and she did for so many years.She was a lovely lady and wonderful cook.
On St Patrick's Day since she was married to a Irish fellow, she would make the Traditional Corn Beef and Cabbage. Over the years she also would throw in her own twist by baking an Irish Whiskey Cake. It's simple recipe for a tube cake with a glaze of sugar and whiskey. Best served cold and with freshly whipped cream. It was so good that when I was younger, my sister and I ate it for breakfast! Not sure we were aware that it had alcohol in it. To carry on the tradition, I have made this cake the last two years and I can say it is fantastic and very easy to make.
Irish Whiskey Cake

1 Package Yellow Cake mix
1 Small Package Vanilla Pudding (instant)
1 Cup of Milk
4 Eggs
1/3 Cup Oil

Mix the above and beat for 2-3 Minutes with an electric mixer. Pour into greased tube pan and bake 1 hour in 350 degree oven.

2/3 Cup sugar
1 Stick of Butter
1/2 Cup of Whiskey
Melt Sugar and butter, then add Whiskey.

When cake is removed from oven,pour 1/2 the mixer over the top and let stand for 1/2 hour. Remove from pan and pour remaining mixture over the cake. Serve when cool and top with fresh whip cream.

Enjoy this favorite of mine and my mothers and have a Happy St Patrick's Day!
