Celebrate St. Patrick's Day in style with this delicious and gorgeous Guinness chocolate cake with Bailey's glaze.
I made this cake for Julian and I to celebrate St. Patrick's Day, and holy this was amazing! The Guinness adds the perfect flavor and makes the cake super moist and tender. This cake is also surprisingly easy to make which I always love! The Bailey's glaze is also delicious and adds the perfect flavor to offset the delicious chocolate flavor in the cake. If you want to serve this to younger ones, I recommend swapping The Bailey's for milk and a little vanilla extract.
While the full recipe details are available below for the Guinness chocolate cake with Bailey's glaze, here are some tips when gathering your ingredients!
Your Bailey's glaze will kick this cake to a whole other level! It is also very easy to make which I love. All you need is some icing sugar, Bailey's Irish cream, and milk. While your cake is cooling, whisk together all of the ingredients until you have a smooth glaze. Poke holes in your cake while it is still warm and pour your glaze over the cake. It's that simple!
One difficulty I always have when making a Bundt cake is that it sticks to the pan. I have finally found the perfect solution to keep your cake from sticking to the pan. This works every time! Whisk together equal parts of flour, shortening, and vegetable oil until it forms a paste. Paint the paste onto your pan with a pastry brush before adding your cake batter.
Another tip I have is not to let your cake cool completely in the Bundt pan. Your cake should cool in the Bundt pan no longer than five to ten minutes. Then you need to flip it over. Let it sit for a couple of minutes flipped onto the cooling rack or cake stand, and tap the top. Finally, slowly remove your pan, and if you used my trick above, reveal your perfectly shaped Bundt cake!
