What is St. Patrick’s Day?
St. Patrick’s Day, also known as the feast day of St. Patrick, is the anniversary of the death of the patron saint of Ireland. He is celebrated for bringing Christianity to the Emerald Isle, and one of the most famous legends of the saint is using a Shamrock (Irish three-leaved clover) to explain the Holy Trinity – the father, son, and the holy spirit.
As the holiday evolved over the years, it has become a celebration of Irish culture. People come together to drink, feast on traditional Irish dishes, dance to Irish music, and mark the occasion by wearing green clothes!

A St. Patrick’s Day Bundt cake recipe
The word ‘Bundt’ was created by the designer of the Bundt tin, Dave Dalquist. It is derived from the German word ‘Bundkucken’, which translates to ‘a cake for a gathering’. Dalquist decided to add a ‘t’ to Bundt to allow him to trademark the name.
This vegan sweet potato Bundt cake recipe is a great choice for a celebration. If you don’t own a Bundt tin, don’t worry, this recipe can also be made into a loaf or cupcakes!
