    Default Emerald Isle Cake

    1/2 cup butter, softened
    1 cup sugar
    2 eggs
    1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    1-3/4 cups all-purpose flour
    2 teaspoons baking powder
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1/2 cup milk
    1 cup confectioners' sugar
    1 to 2 tablespoons milk or Irish whiskey
    Green food coloring, optional
    Slivered almonds, optional
    In a small mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in vanilla. Combine the flour, baking powder and salt; add to the creamed mixture alternately with the milk. Beat until smooth. Spread into a greased 9-in. square baking pan.
    Bake at 350° for 40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center of the cake comes out clean. For glaze, combine confectioners' sugar and milk or whiskey until smooth and fairly thin. If desired, stir in 1 to 2 drops food coloring until blended. Spread glaze over warm cake. Sprinkle with almonds if desired. Yield: 9-12 servings.
