St. Patrick's Day & Shamrocks

On Christ the Solid Rock I stand,
all other rocks are shamrocks!

St. Patrick's Day Cake

1  package  Yellow -or- White Cake Mix
1  small box  Pistachio Instant Pudding Mix
1/2  teaspoon  Almond Extract
4  Eggs
1 1/4  Cups  Water
1/4  Cup  Oil
7 or more  Drops  Green Food Coloring
Powdered Sugar

Preheat oven to 350*.  Combine all ingredients except Powdered Sugar in a large mixing bowl.  Blend, then beat at medium speed with electric mixer for 4 minutes.  Pour into a greased and floured 9x13 pan.  Bake for 45 to 50 minutes or until cake springs back when lightly pressed.  Cool in pan for 15 minutes; invert onto serving platter.  Sprinkle with powdered sugar.

Quick, easy, and good.  A recipe of my mother-in-law's.

Happy St. Patrick's Day!
