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!

Out Now!

Coming in May!

  1. Sounds good! Sorry the glaze messed up your pants.

  2. Thanks, Dee. Fortunately the pants are washable! Love fabrics that don't need dry cleaning!

  3. That is marvelous copy!
    I read it out loud to my husband and his comment was, "How cute!"

    And the cake sounds scrumptious!

  4. I DO love food, family and a mystery!

  5. I need to try this one! My computer didn't want to pull up this page yesterday. Talk about being persnickety. I would totally forget about taking a picture of the finished product if I was anticipating eating it.

  6. Pat D, I had trouble pulling up the page yesterday, too, so it wasn't just your computer! I've heard from several people who weren't able to make the party that they'd heard about the Bailey's Irish Cream Cake lol!
