Just imagine it… Your two hands wrapped around a large mug of piping hot coffee, with a hefty swirl of Baileys Irish Cream, topped with whipped cream, chocolate, and caramel drizzle.

You sip and the creamy sweetness (and caffeine) massages your throat on the way down, like a hug from the inside-out.

That, my friends, is what I’m serving you today, in bundt cake form.

Coffee. Chocolate. Caramel. And silky Baileys Irish Cream all baked into one glorious cake to share with friends.

Because I love you.

And I love bundt cakes.

They are dense enough to be sturdy, yet soft, moist, and naturally pretty due to their shape.

This Baileys Irish Cream Bundt Cake is truly one of my favorites!

It’s rich and comforting, with a note of boozy coffee in each bite.

Amazing Baileys Irish Cream Bundt Cake #cake #bundtcake #baileysirishcream

The most import thing(s) to remember about all bundt cakes, it that they need time to cool in the pan before flipping. Usually 20 minutes will do, but sometimes I wait 30 minutes, just to be sure.

There’s nothing worse than flipping a cake out of the pan and watching it break in half.

Along with waiting, it’s highly important to make sure your pan is well greased and floured.

I like to spray bundt pans with the non-stick baking spray that is made with flour, instead of buttering and flouring the nooks and crannies.

My last tip is to wait until the cake is completely cool to add toppings. Otherwise the toppings absorb into the cake, instead of setting on top of the cake.

See how the chocolate ganache and caramel drip down the sides and dry, instead of disappearing into the cake?

Patience is a virtue when it comes to bundt cakes.

For the Baileys Irish Cream Bundt Cake:
For the Toppings:
  • 1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup thick cream of caramel or dulce de leche
  • 2 ounces chocolate bar to shave over the top


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and move the oven racks to make room for a bundt pan in the center. Thoroughly butter and flour an 11- to 12-cup bundt pan. (I like to use the floured baking spray instead.)

  2. In the bowl of your electric mixer, combine the first six dry ingredients. Turn the mixer on low to stir. Then slowly add in the remaining five wet ingredients. Turn the mixer off. Scrape the bowl. Then mix again until smooth.

  3. Pour the batter into the prepared pan and bake for 45-55 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Allow the cake to rest and cool for at least 20 minutes before flipping. Flip the cake onto a wire cooling rack and cool to room temperature before topping.
  4. Once the cake has cooled, bring the cream to a boil (in the microwave or on the stove). Remove from heat and add the chocolate chips. Allow them to sit in the hot cream for 5 minutes, then stir to combine. Place a piece of wax paper under the wire cooling rack.

  5. Use a spoon to drizzle the chocolate ganache over the cake. Then warm the caramel until just warm enough to drizzle, not hot. Drizzle over the cake. Use a vegetable peeler to shave the chocolate bar over the top of the liquid toppings. Let the toppings set before wrapping the cake. You can, however, cut it immediately after topping!

    Can I use cream cheese instead of sour cream? If not, what can be used to substitute sour cream?

    • Sommer Collierposted March 7, 2019 at 2:44 pm Reply

      Hi Kim,

      I wouldn’t use cream cheese, but yogurt or buttermilk are great substitutions for sour cream. :)

    Made this for Valentine’s Day which is also the same week as 2 birthdays in the office.
    Used the Chocolate&Cherries Baileys. Did not make the toppings for it. Great taste and texture and ingredients came together easily. Will make again.

    This sounds delicious. Thanks so much for including a picture when I print the recipe out. I love having a picture of your recipe/results so I can remember what to expect. Many recipes print off without photos although they have one in the blog. I plan to use this recipe for our St. Patrick’s Day dinner.

    What a marvelous recipe.  I would like to use this for making cupcakes.  If I follow the general rule of 2/3 full I should be okay.  I know the drizzle of caramel and chocolate won’t be as eye catching but I’d like to try this.  Any suggestions.

  10. pritsposted November 9, 2017 at 3:18 am Reply


    I totally love this cake and have made it several times. I love everything about this cake. But now I want to try it without baileys. (I know that’s the highlight of this cake). I have a toddler and He loves cakes. I want to make a cake that’s similar in texture but without baileys. Any suggestions? What can I substitute it with? 

    • Sommerposted November 17, 2017 at 11:28 pm Reply

      Hi Thomas,

      My first thought is to substitute evaporated milk. It would have a similar consistency as should result in a similar texture. If you give it a try, let me know how it turns out! :)

    I just made this cake yesterday for a dinner party and it was devoured in a matter of minutes.  I mixed it a little differently.  I didn’t melt the butter.  I used room temperature butter and creamed the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. I added the eggs one at a time, blending well after each one.  Then I added the sour cream and mixed well.  I then added all of the dry ingredients, that I had measured and sifted together,  alternating with the Bailey’s beginning and ending with the Bailey’s.  The cake turned out nice and light.

    Hi! Just made this and it is absolutely decadent! Do I store it covered in the fridge? Or would the countertop be ok? Does it freeze well? How long does it stay fresh? Or has everyone devoured it before it had time to sit ? Thanks for the great recipe!

    • Sommerposted June 11, 2015 at 9:29 am Reply

      Hi Kate! You can leave it out on the counter for a couple days under a cake dome, or place it in the fridge uncovered (as too not mess up the drizzle.) If you want to freeze it, freeze uncovered until completely hard, then wrap well and place back in the freezer.

    I would LOVE to be holding a cup of coffee and be looking at this particular
    bundt cake. In fact just to be in keeping, I would add a little Baileys in my coffee.
    Let’s hope this was not the day I was suppose to go in to my day job that kind of demands my attention to detail.

    So glad there’s a respectable amount of Bailey’s in here – go big or go home! (Or go big, stay at home, and eat cake?) This looks fantastic :)
