Midori Bundt Cake is quick, easy and unique. The star ingredient (the Midori) is a melon liqueur commonly found in frozen Daiquiris, so even if you don’t like the cake, you’ll at least have a new item for your bar.
I am unaware of the origin of this recipe but it strikes me as something a Junior Leaguer might invent…or maybe Sandra Lee….or maybe me. But I just don’t know. Whoever made up this cake, all I can say is thanks! It’s very good.
Here’s a photo of the colorful array of ingredients.
Jump to the batter. At this point, you may think “What the heck have I gotten myself into?” But fear not – the cake is not as green as the batter.
The cake rose beautifully. Here it is before I dumped it out. I’m going to wrap it tightly in foil, then make the icing tomorrow before carrying it to the home of a friend, so stay tuned for reviews! Of course, if you are desperate for a last minute throw-together pastel colored Easter thing, make one today.
I promise to post a taste report tomorrow.
