      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.
