This delicious Chocolate Baileys Poke Cake has Baileys in the batter and in the chocolate sauce, topped with Baileys Chocolate Whipped Cream!Tips and Tricks to Make the Chocolate Baileys Poke Cake:

  • Using high quality cocoa powder in this recipe is key, as the chocolate flavor is front and center
  • Clean the knife after each cut, otherwise the slices will be messier, since the chocolate may stick to the knife
  • Let the cake absorb the chocolate Baileys mixture for at least 8 hours before serving, this will make the cake extra tender, soft and flavorful
  • Topping the cake with fresh raspberries is optional, but I found the combo to work great
  • Keep the cake refrigerated as the whipped cream will start melting if kept at room temperature for too long

  • Non Stick Baking Pan – I use this 9×13 pan for many recipes, brownies, fudge and blondies, the quality is great and it will last you a long time
  • Unsweetened Cocoa Powder – delicious flavor, it will make any chocolate dessert amazing
  • Vanilla Extract – adding a little vanilla extract to chocolate desserts is a must, the mild flavor makes the chocolate flavor shine
  • Dark Chocolate Melts/Wafers – I love using these for the chocolate mixture as they are so easy to melt
  • Semi Sweet Chocolate – these bars taste delicious,I shaved 3 ounces to sprinkle on the cake

Recipe type: Cake
Cuisine: American
Serves: 12 serv
Ingredients
  • 1¾ cups (228g) all purpose flour
  • 2 cups (414g) sugar
  • 1 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup (240ml) Baileys Irish Cream
  • ½ cup (120ml) vegetable oil
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs, room temperature
  • 1 cup (240ml) hot water
  • Baileys Chocolate Mixture:
  • 14 oz sweetened condensed milk
  • ¼ cu Baileys Irish Cream
  • 1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
  • Chocolate Baileys Whipped Cream Topping:
  • 2 cups heavy whipping cream, cold
  • ½ cup powdered sugar
  • ¼ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • ¼ cup Baileys Irish Cream
  • Garnish:
  • Fresh raspberries
  • Shaved Chocolate
  • Chocolate sauce (store bought)
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Place oven rack in the middle of the oven.
  2. Spray a 9X13 inch cake pan with non-stick baking spray and set aside.
  3. Add the flour, sugar, cocoa, baking powder and salt to a large bowl and whisk until combined, or add to the bowl of a stand mixer and whisk on low.
  4. In another medium bowl combine Baileys Irish Cream, vegetable oil, vanilla extract and eggs and whisk until fully combined.
  5. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and beat on medium speed until well combined.
  6. Slowly add the hot water to the batter and mix on low speed until well combined. Make sure to stop and scrape down the sides and bottom of the bowl with a spatula.
  7. Pour batter into the prepared pan and bake for 30-32 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out with just a few moist crumbs. I baked mine for exactly 30 minutes.
  8. Remove cake from oven. Using the end of a spatula or a large straw, even a pen will work if you don't have anything on hand, poke holes all over the cake.
  9. Baileys Chocolate Mixture:
  10. In a medium, microwave safe bowl, combine chocolate chips and sweetened condensed milk. Heat in the microwave until hot for about 1 minute, stir and heat 30 seconds or more if needed. Whisk until combined, smooth and shiny. Whisk in the Baileys Irish Cream until fully combined.
  11. Pour the chocolate Baileys mixture all over the cake and spread it into the holes. Allow the cake to completely cool before topping it with whipped cream.
  12. Chocolate Baileys Whipped Cream Topping:
  13. Add the heavy whipping cream, powdered sugar, cocoa and Baileys Irish Cream to a large mixer bowl. Whip on high speed until stiff peaks form and the whipped cream holds its shape.
  14. Spread the whipped cream on top of the cooled cake, garnish with shaved chocolate, fresh raspberries and finish with chocolate sauce.
  15. Refrigerate cake for at least 6-8 hours before serving.
  16. Enjoy!
