I'll spend hours talking to my mom reminiscing about all those times we've baked together for Christmas.
Let's start the Holiday Season with great sweepstakes. Just by voting on your favorite photo you are entered in a drawing to win one of eight brand new Kitchen Aid mixers!
Christmas Tree Cake
1/2 cup oil
Preheat oven to 350F.
Butter and flour tree cake pan and set aside.
Use a small food processor to chop up the M&M’s® White Peppermint candies.
In a mixing bowl combine 1/2 of Pillsbury™ Funfetti® Holiday Cake Mix, Great Value Milk, oil and eggs. Beat on low until moistened and then increase the speed to medium high and beat for additional 2 minutes. Stir in chopped M&M’s® White Peppermint candies. Pour cake batter into a prepared cake pan. Bake for 25-30 minutes. If you see that the top of the cake is browning too fast, cover the cake with foil dome to prevent excessive browning.
Cake is done once toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
Invert the cake onto a cooling rack and let cool completely before frosting.
Here is my festive Tree Cake.
You maybe asking why did I use milk instead of water to make the cake batter? Milk is good for you.
Milk is naturally - nutrient - rich with calcium, vitamin D, potassium and it is also a great source of protein. Did you know that milk is needed at your local food bank? There are so many hungry children and families that are missing out on the essential nutrients supplied by milk. Food banks don't have enough milk to provide for those families in need. You can help by making a small donation to pourmilklove.com or purchase 2 bags of M&M’s® at Walmart (9.4 oz bags or larger) and up to a gallon of milk will be donated to the drive. Join Feeding America in The Great American Milk Drive - delivering a gallon of milk – and all of the essential nutrients, including protein, that it provides – to a family in need in YOUR local community.
