One Bowl Coffee and Baileys Cake

I am not a big drinker but one thing you will always see in my refrigerator is a bottle or two of Baileys Irish cream. This recipe is inspired by an Irish cream and Coffee stacked birthday cake which I baked for a friend. It turned out to be the perfect pairing and I thought it will be a great idea to infuse both flavours into one cake.

If you are a lover of coffee , then be sure to enjoy this boozy cake. Glaze it with a coffee and baileys syrup and you are in for a real treat.
