Baileys Irish Cream Mug Cake – moist, flavorful cake that’s made in just 2 minutes. You can make it non-alcoholic using the Baileys Coffee Creamer.
Baileys Irish Cream Mug Cake
Yesterday we made Irish Cream cupcakes and today I am showcasing a similar recipe but this one is made from start to finish in 5 minutes or less. This cake is moist, delicious and you will never ever imagined that it came from the microwave. I soak the warm cake with more Baileys to get the 3 leches texture. Yum!
This Baileys Irish Cream Mug Cake is alcohol-free since I made it with the Baileys coffee creamer instead of the liquor. You can choose either one depending on your mood. If it’s late at night and you’re craving a freshly baked good, then make this cake. You won’t be sorry.
I serve mine with a dollop of creamy topping and some golden sparkles to celebrate St. Patty’s Day. For the purposes of this post I un-molded the cake onto a plate, but normally I would eat inside the mug. The sensation when you dig that spoon into the baileys soaked cake is awesome.
What I love about mug cakes is that I can whip them up in the last minute and it’ll curb my craving of sweets. Also, since you make a small batch, there are no leftovers and you’ll feel less guilty.
They also work as an instant dessert, imagine if your mother in law stops by unannounced. You have to clean the house quickly and also make her a treat before she starts criticizing you decor. In that case, I would give her the Baileys liquor and make it a Happy Hour!
If you have a mug, few ingredients, and a microwave, you got yourself a sweet dessert. My husband and I are currently watching Season 3 of House of Cards, this Baileys Irish Cream Mug Cake will serve as the perfect snack to eat while we watch President Underwood crush everybody around him. Gotta love Netflix.
