What a wonderful way to end our St Patty's meal! I made the recipe into mini bundts so everyone could have their own. It was very easy to make and I will be making it for more than just this holiday. Thanks so much for posting!!

Except for the nuts and I only make half the amount of the glaze, this is just like what I've made for the last 15 years. Its an excellent cake, moist and sweet with a slight kick.

This cake is always a hit. It makes two 8x4 loaf pans so you can freeze one. The entire glaze makes it too sweet, so I make half and use 1/3 cup brown sugar instead of white sugar. People always ask for the recipe.
