Chocolate lovers, this cake is for you! Chocolate Irish Cream Bundt Cake is a made-from-scratch double chocolate cake studded with mini chocolate chips, and drizzled with a rich and silky chocolate glaze - the ultimate St. Patrick’s Day treat. With each forkful, you get intense chocolate flavor, hints of coffee, and delicious Irish Cream liqueur. So rich and flavorful - no other chocolate cake can compare!
Fresh ingredients make the freshest cakes! This rich and moist cake takes less than 10 minute to whip up. Start with fresh eggs and butter and brown sugar, add some sour cream for extra moisture. Three different chocolates - dark chocolate, cocoa powder, and semi-sweet chocolate chips combine for deep chocolate decadence. A full tablespoon of pure vanilla extract, coffee and Baileys Irish Cream add depth of flavor. The smell while this bakes is heavenly!
You can top this beautiful cake with either Chocolate Ganache, or my favorite, a Chocolate Irish Cream Glaze. Both are wonderful!
Like most bundt cakes, this rich cake is even better the day AFTER you bake it. The flavors settle and the cake is just so incredibly rich and moist.
To make an alcohol-free version, simply replace the Baileys Irish Cream with an Irish Cream or vanilla coffee creamer, or substitute half & half.
This Chocolate Irish Cream Bundt Cake is winner every time - you're sure to love it as well!
