  • 1 cup unsalted butter 2 sticks
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp Kosher salt
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup Bailey's or Irish cream liqueur of choice
  • 2 1/4 cups flour
  • 2 1/2 tsp baking powder


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees & grease and flour loaf or bundt pan*.
  2. Cream butter, sugar and salt together.
  3. Whisk the eggs, then add to bowl, pour in the Bailey's. Mix well.
  4. Add the flour and baking powder (preferably mixed together first) a bit at a time. Make sure the batter is well beaten and silky smooth.
  5. Pour batter into prepped pan.
  6. I made this in a bundt pan (35 minute bake time), but would recommend using a loaf pan instead *(around 50-60 minutes)

Recipe Notes

* The cake puffs up quite a bit & is better suited for baking in a loaf pan, which is how I will make it in the future.
