Midori Bundt Cake

This cake is wonderfully moist and delicious. The glaze is scrumptious but the cake can stand alone or with a sprinkling of powdered sugar. This is just the thing to welcome new neighbors or to say Thank You for bringing in your mail while you were on vacation. I’ve taken more than a few to pot lucks & church suppers, as well.

Midori is a sweet, bright green in color, melon-flavored liqueur. Until 1987 it was made exclusively in Japan but is now also manufactured in Mexico and France. Midori is usually 20–21% alcohol by volume.

Midori is the Japanese word for "green".
