Tuesdays At The Table - Peppermint Ribbon Cake

Happy Tuesday!  Everyone get their trees up & decorate, Christmas cards finished and all their shopping done?! either.  At least my Christmas cards are finished.  So I'm not a total failure...

I'm sharing another peppermint recipe this week.  What can I say?  I love peppermint.  I promise, next week will be mint-free...and likely not a dessert.  This little beauty comes from A Taste of Home and is both easy and comes out pretty!


Peppermint Ribbon Cake

1 package white cake mix (regular size)
1/2 teaspoon peppermint extract
1/2 teaspoon red food coloring
1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons crushed peppermint candies, divided
1 cup confectioners' sugar
1 tablespoon 2% milk
Prepare cake batter according to package directions. Transfer 1 cup to a small bowl; stir in the extract, food coloring and 1/2 cup crushed candies.

Spoon 2 cups of remaining batter into a greased and floured 10-in. bundt cake pan. Carefully top with peppermint batter; do not swirl. Top with remaining plain batter.

Bake at 350° for 35-45 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack to cool completely.

Combine confectioners' sugar and milk; drizzle over cake. Sprinkle with remaining crushed candies.
