Mint Cake Recipe

No luck o’ the Irish needed here—find traditional St. Patrick’s Day recipes like Irish soda bread and mint desserts. But you’ll also enjoy unique twists on classic favorites, like reuben dip and corned beef casserole.

"My sister and I liked to bake this ‘cool’ Mint Cake when we were learning to cook…and I still enjoy making it today," reports Sue Gronholz of Beaver Dam, Wisconsin.

“The first time I made these pretty Holiday Pinwheels, my husband ate the whole batch in just a few days!” writes Tejay Kuechenmeister of Brookings, South Dakota. “The fun green swirls are great for St. Patrick’s Day.”

"This slow-cooked Paddy’s Reuben Dip tastes just like the popular Reuben sandwich," assures Mary Jane Kimmes of Hastings, Minnesota. "Even when I double the recipe, I end up with an empty dish."

“Each bite of this traditional Irish Soda Bread is dotted with raisins. My family considers this my ‘best ever’ bread recipe,” says Sandra Linder of Blue Springs, Nebraska.

Corned Beef Casserole has been a favorite recipe in our family for more than 50 years,” shares Jeri Butters of Englewood, Florida. “My kids still request it when they come to visit, and it was one of the first recipes they called long distance to ask for after they got married.”

"When I served this Mint Brownie Pie to my family on St. Patrick’s Day, it was an instant success," writes Karen Hayes from Conneaut Lake, Pennsylvania.
