Creme De Menthe Cake for #SundaySupper Home for the Holidays

Sunday, December 23, 2012
This week’s Sunday Supper Event is all about family, heritage and traditions, hosted by Galactopdx. I've recently shared a few of my families recipes during #SundaySupper and today I am featuring my Nanny Wood's Creme De Menthe bunt cake. This cake was made for every holiday and smelling it bake will always remind me of my childhood.  This is a simple cake, made with yellow cake mix, pistachio pudding, chocolate syrup and creme de menthe.

1 pkg yellow cake mix
1 pkg (4 serving) instant pistachio pudding
1/2 c orange juice
1/2 c creme de menthe
4 eggs
1/2 c vegetable oil
1 tsp vanilla
3/4 c hershey chocolate syrup (if you can find the one in a can, get that!)

1 Preheat Oven to 350
2 Combine cake and pudding mix. Add eggs, beating one at a time. Add all other ingredients (except choc syrup). Beat well.
3 Pour 2/3 batter in greased bundt pan.
4 Mix remaining batter with chocolate syrup and add to the top DO NOT MIX, JUST LAY ON TOP.
5 Bake at 350 for 55 min.
Cool for 30 min then remove from pan.
