I’ve been on a bender.
Pull up a chair! I am sharing a recipe I developed for a St. Patty’s Day inspired dessert. Ok, the Bailey’s is the only thing that makes it remotely similar to St. Patrick’s Day. But trust me, this Bailey’s cake is amazing! It’s a white chocolate and walnut flavored cake topped with a creamy white chocolate and Bailey’s glaze. This is a flavorful, moist dessert best served with coffee and your feet on the coffee table.
Honestly, I had a bear of a time trying to think of an original idea for St. Patrick’s Day. I mean, what do you create involving green beer and shamrocks that someone hasn’t been done before? That was when I noticed Hubby’s bottle of Bailey’s that he sometimes uses as a coffee treat. Are You thinking what I’m thinking? Oh yeah! Except the green part, green cake would spoil its beauty.
Originally, I was going to do a twist on a blondie. So I tested the whole recipe with Bailey’s Irish Cream in the blondie. It was an over the top sweetness disaster. So I decided to go fluffier and spongier. The walnuts and chips gave the cake a nice chunky texture. Four batches later and this beauty is oh so yummy!
The other problem I am having? What to name this Bailey’s dessert monster. It’s got white chocolate chips, and walnuts, and Bailey’s, and cake, and specialness. If anyone is good at naming stuff, help a girl out.
If you like Bailey’s, try this Bailey’s cake because it is one awesome dessert. But if anyone in your house loves Bailey’s too, you might want to hide the sauce. Hubby stole my sauce to put on his ice cream. I really can’t blame him.
Have a Great Day!
