  • For the cake:
  • 540g flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup Baileys
  • 125ml milk
  • 340g butter at room temperature
  • 400g brown sugar
  • 200g sugar
  • 5 eggs
  • For the glaze:
  • 250g icing sugar
  • 3 tbsps Baileys
  • 3 tbsps water, plus more as needed


Step 1

Preheat oven to 160°C. Prepare a bundt pan by spraying with nonstick cooking spray.

Step 2

Combine flour, baking powder and salt in a small bowl and set aside. In a small liquid measuring cup mix Baileys and milk and set aside.

Step 3

In a large bowl, using a hand held electric mixer, beat butter and sugars at medium speed until fluffy-about 3 minutes. Add the eggs, one at a time, and beat well to incorporate after each addition.

Step 4

To the butter mixture, gradually add half the flour mixture then half the milk mixture. Repeat with remaining flour then milk and mix until incorporated.

Step 5

Pour batter into prepared pan then smooth batter evenly. Bake in preheated oven 1 hour and 15 to 20 minutes or until a wooden skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean.

Step 6

Allow cake to cool in pan for 15 minutes. Remove cake from pan to a plate or serving dish and cool completely.

Step 7

Meanwhile make glaze by combining sugar, Baileys and 3 tablespoons of water, adding more water as needed, 1 tablespoon at a time, until smooth. Drizzle cooled cake with glaze.
