Does Anyone Have Any Tried & True Liquer Cake Recipes?

Hi All,

 

I was wondering if anyone has any tried and true liquer cake recipes?  I'm interested in trying out some of these types of recipes, and was wondering if anyone had any that they would be intrested in sharing?

 

I'm particularly interested in cakes with: guinness stout & bailey's irish cream, but would love ANY shared recipes!

 

Thanks in advance!

I always add liquor when using cake mixes. This Cooking Light recipe is great:
Chocolate Chip Irish Cream Pound Cake
From Cooking Light

Category Finalist, Desserts. "This cake is even better on the second day." --Anna Ginsberg, Austin, TX

1/4 cup semisweet chocolate minichips
1 teaspoon cake flour
2 3/4 cups cake flour (about 11 ounces)
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup fat-free cream cheese, softened
10 tablespoon butter, softened
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 large eggs
3/4 cup Irish cream liqueur
Baking spray with flour
2 tablespoons powdered sugar

Preheat oven to 325�.

Combine chocolate chips and 1 teaspoon flour in a small bowl; toss.

Lightly spoon 2 3/4 cups flour into dry measuring cups; level with a knife. Sift together flour, baking powder, and salt.

Place cream cheese and butter in a bowl; beat with a mixer at high speed to blend. Add granulated sugar, brown sugar, and vanilla; beat until blended. Add eggs, 1 at a time; beat well after each addition. Beat on high speed 1 minute. With mixer on low, add flour mixture and liqueur alternately to sugar mixture, beginning and ending with flour mixture; beat well after each addition. Fold in chocolate chips. Pour batter into a 12-cup Bundt pan coated with baking spray. Bake at 325� for 55 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 10 minutes on a wire rack; remove from pan. Cool completely on wire rack. Sift powdered sugar over cake.

This is from the Bailey's Irish Cream recipe book dated 1989. My parents owned a liquor store for more than thirty years in Michigan and every holiday the Michigan Liquor Control Commission would send out these recipe booklets with the delivery man. I still have the little book and the recipe is all over the Internet and has not changed in all this time.

1/2 cup butter
1/4 cup water
1 cup white sugar
1/2 cup Irish cream liqueur

Grease and flour a 10 inch Bundt pan.
Sprinkle chopped nuts evenly over bottom of pan.
In a large bowl, combine cake mix and pudding mix.

Beat for 5 minutes at high speed.
Pour batter over nuts in pan.
Bake in the preheated oven for 60 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the cake comes out clean.

Would this work as layers as well as cupcakes? Is it dense enough to carve?
I am making a Guinness pint-shaped cake for my best friends b-day and was looking for a Guinness-flavored recipe. I've made box-mix chocolate cake w/stout subbed for water, which was good, but the Guinness was rather understated. I was thinking about simmering the Guinness to reduce it, we'll see

In theory it should work - most of the liquer recipes I've seen are modified cake mixes with some or all of the water substituted with the liquer - let us know if you try it!
I have tried the cake recipe with liquer from the following link. It came out really well.

Good luck!
