Baileys and Buttershots Bundt Cake #BundtaMonth

[ 28 ] December 1, 2012 |

December. Full of decorating, holiday parties, days off from work, and a nip in the air. What better way to give you a toasty warm feeling that with a boozy bundt. This month our #BundtaMonth group enjoyed am alcohol infused theme. My cake this month is an homage to my old days of “out every weekend with my girlfriend’s” days. We used to love a shot of butterscotch schnapps with a layer of Bailey’s floating on the top. The shot tastes like a butterscotch candy. I was excited to recreate the flavor profile in my
Bailey’s and Buttershots Bundt Cake.

Baileys and Butterscotch Bundt Cake 1

Our #BundtaMonth bakers know not everyone drinks alcohol. We made sure to include non-alcoholic bundts in our list this month as well! I loved how creative the participants were with all of their recipes! Don’t forget you can always get a little creative and use flavored extracts as opposed to alcohol if you prefer.

Ingredients:
2 ½ Cups flour
2 ½ tsp baking powder
½ tsp salt
¾ Cup unsalted butter
1 ¾ Cup sugar
3 eggs, room tº
1 ½ tsp vanilla
1/2 Cup + 2 Tbs cup half and half
1/4 Cup Creme Brulee flavored creamer
1/4 Cup Baileys original irish cream
2 Tbs + 1 1/2 tsp Butterscotch schnapps

Directions:
1. Preheat oven to 350º
2. Sift flour, baking powder and salt. Set aside
3. Beat butter until creamy. Slowly add sugar and beat 2 minutes.
4. Add eggs one at a time, then beat for 2 minutes.
5. In large measuring cup mix half and half, flavored creamer, Baileys, and schnapps and stir to blend
6. Add vanilla. Beginning and ending with dry ingredients, add in three parts alternating with liquid in two parts.
7. Spray bundt pan (or butter it) and flour or sprinkle it with breadcrumbs.
8. Pour batter, spreading evenly.
9. Bake about 40-50 minutes until knife comes out clean.

I topped my cake with a simple glaze of melted butter, powdered sugar, and a little creme brulee flavored creamer.  I just played with the three ingredients until I reached the consistency that I wanted for drizzling over the cake.  You could certainly sub in the Baileys instead of the creamer to punch up the Baileys flavor.

There are some amazing cakes this month that I can’t wait to try baking.  I have a feeling a few party hostesses will be receiving a bundt instead of a bottle of wine this year.

      Jennie, the creamer just seems to layer in more depth to the flavors. I love using flavored creamers in my bundts lately! They work great!

    I don’t think I could do the shot (Agh! a shot of schnapps? Too sweet! :D) but the cake on the other hand I could eat a lot of. And the photos are gorgeous!

    Looks amazing! I am going to try this recipe

  15. Kellie says:

    I’ve been looking for recipes that use “Irish” in them. My mom has a few bottles of Baileys and Brendan’s that she’s been gifted with and they are just sitting and collecting dust. I will have to send her a link to this recipe. Maybe we can bake off the surplus. Lol.

  16. Linda S says:

    How much of the Baileys and Creme Brulee flavored creamer do you add? The recipe just says 1/4…1/4 Cup?

    • karenhartzell says:

      WOW! Thanks for catching that, Linda! I appreciate it. Yes, it is 1/4 Cup. I have updated the recipe, and added the printable format as well. I am still working to update past recipes for easy printing. You can always edit the amount of liqueur in the cake too, just be sure to keep the liquid total to be the same. Let me know how you like the cake if you make it!
