“Came across this recipe and I am putting it here for safe keeping. Haven't made this recipe as yet, although there has not been a cake with spirits added that I have not loved. NOTE: The original recipe gave no amount on the white chocolate chips, I put in 12oz. as that is the size I would most likely buy. I plan on starting out with less when I first make this recipe, probably 1 cup and work from there. Please post what you did and how it worked out. Also: The recipe for cake ingredients should read: 1 Tblsp., plus 2 tsp. baking powder ( I could not get it to print that way)”

Directions

  1. BAILEYS YELLOW CAKE DIRECTIONS:
  2. Preheat oven to 350°F Grease and flour a 13 x 9 x 2 inch baking pan, and a 6 x 9 x 2 inch pan, or whatever combination of pans that will hold 1 1/2 times the amount that a 13 x 9 x 2 pan holds.
  3. Mix the flour with the salt and baking powder. Mix the Baileys with the milk.
  4. Using electric mixer, cream the shortening with the sugar. Add the egg and vanilla, and beat well. Add the flour mixture, alternately with the Baileys and milk mixture. Beat for 2 minutes.
  5. Pour half of the cake batter into the prepared pans, then drop large spoonfuls of the Baileys Swirl (recipe below) into the pans alternately with large spoonfuls of the cake batter. Swirl with knife or fork to get a marbled effect.
  6. Bake about 25-35 minutes, or until surface springs back when lightly pressed with fingertip.
  7. Let cool, then spread with Baileys glaze (recipe below).
  8. BAILEYS CHEESE SWIRL DIRECTIONS:
  9. With electric mixer, beat cheese with butter and vanilla until creamy.
  10. Add the confectioners sugar; beat until light and fluffy.
  11. Stir in the Baileys and white chocolate, and mix well.
  12. BAILEYS GLAZE DIRECTIONS:
  13. Mix 3/4 cup Baileys with 1 cup of the powdered sugar. Add more Baileys if the glaze is too thick; add more sugar if the glaze is too thin. Add more Baileys and sugar if there isn't enough glaze.
