Ellen's Green Cake

Ellen's Green Cake

As long as I have known our friend, Ellen, she has been making "Green Cake" and bringing it to gatherings, as she did to the Superbowl party. 

So I took the opportunity to take a photo of it and interviewed her. 

How many times have you made "Green Cake"?

I started making it in 1982 (year I was married). Have probably made it at least 10 times a year for 31 years!!

That's over 300 times you've made it! 

Made it for Lake House, dinner parties, birthdays, office parties, pot lucks, new baby, new house, just because, etc

Who named it "Green Cake"?

Official name: Creme de Menthe Cake. Dubbed "The Green Cake" by Cindy Lyness

Is it a secret recipe?

No!! Recipe came from my Mom. Here it is:

Ellen's Green Cake
