And it's easy! Always a bonus. The original recipe called for Frangelico liqueur as well as Bailey's but good luck finding that in your local grocery store. Plus I didn't want to invest the money in it so...I fiddled with the directions and it still came out great! Although this will put quite a dent in your bottle of Bailey's! The original recipe called for putting Bailey's in the glaze as well but I thought that was a bit "de trops" as the French would say. With all that alcohol you wouldn't dare light a match around this cake! No birthday candles, please!
1 box yellow cake mix
1 box instant chocolate pudding mix
3/4 cup vegetable oil
3/4 cup Bailey's Irish Cream
1/8 cup water
4 large eggs
1 cup powdered sugar
Approximately 1/4 cup milk or water
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Combine the first 7 ingredients--cake mix through eggs--and beat until well mixed--approximately three minutes.
Pour into a greased (I used PAM) bundt pan or a tube pan (I still don't have a bundt pan).
Bake 40 to 50 minutes until the proverbial toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
Remove from pan and place on a wire rack or your cake plate. Mix powdered sugar and milk or water to form a thick glaze (you may need to play around with the proportions) and spoon over the cooled cake.
Okay, I forgot to take a picture of the glazed cake but it was awesome! And the glaze got all over my pants as I carried the cake to the party on my lap in the car. But no matter, I was a STAR! Everyone loved it!
Eat and enjoy!
