How to make Best Ever Baileys Chocolate Cake

Step 1: Prepare the oven. Preheat it to 350 degrees F. Using butter, grease a 9 x 13-inch rectangular cake pan, then line with parchment paper. Set aside.

Step 2: Combine the sugar, flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl until well mixed.

Step 3: To a large liquid measuring cup, add the milk, Baileys, vegetable oil, eggs, and vanilla. Stir using a fork.

Step 4: Into the dry ingredients, stir in the wet ingredients just until the streaks of flour vanishes.

Step 5: Slowly add the boiling water or hot coffee, stirring until incorporated.

Step 6: Into the prepared pan, pour the batter. Place in the preheated oven and bake for about 30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the centre of the cake comes out clean.


Step 7: Using a hand mixer, beat the butter at medium-high speed. Or use your stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment until the butter is light and fluffy. Then, add the powdered sugar along with the cocoa powder and beat until well mixed.

Step 8: Next, add the salt and Baileys. Beat on medium-high speed until well blended.

Step 9: Begin adding the whipping cream about 1 tbsp at a time until the frosting is smooth and fluffy.

Step 10: On the completely cooled cake, spread the frosting and smooth out the top. On top of the cake, shave some dark chocolate.

Step 11: Slice the cake and serve. Enjoy!
