Bailey's Irish Cream Cake #Recipe by @PegCochran

I know--St. Patrick's Day is over.  But it's always a good day to enjoy a cake made with Bailey's Irish Cream!  I made this to take to a St. Patrick's Day themed party.  I wasn't going to post it but it was such a hit that I wouldn't want you to miss out!

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!
