Baileys Irish Cream Hot Chocolate Bundt Cake Recipe

Although bundt cakes were inspired by the Eastern Europeans, the pan itself was not invented until late into the 20th century. H. David Dalquist invented these staple cake pans in the 1950s and they quickly became popular across the US. Now, they are used in all areas of the world to make the famous bundt cake. Since their creation, bundt pans have become useful for more than just making cakes and even have a plethora of designs to choose from.

The pan was actually created for a society of Jewish women who wanted to try their hand at making a German cake called “kugelhopf.” It was much like the bundt cake we are used to these days, only denser and not as easy to make by hand, which is why they inquired about a special pan being made to suit the dessert. Dalquist first called it a “bund” pan, which is the German word for “bond,” but then later added the “T” for trademarking purposes. I’ve always thought it would be fun to make that traditional German cake. However, I opted for trying out a new flavor of bundt cake instead, since they’re so similar, and came up with this delicious Baileys Hot Chocolate Bundt Cake.

How Do You Make Baileys Irish Cream Hot Chocolate Bundt Cake?

Begin by greasing your bundt pan (preferably a 10-cup pan) then dust with cocoa powder. In one bowl, cream together the sugar and eggs, while mixing together the dry ingredients in a separate bowl. In a saucepan, combine the butter and water until the butter melts. Add in the cocoa and espresso powders at this point and stir until dissolved. Remove from the stove to cool. To the egg mixture, add the butter mixture and beat for a minute before adding in the Baileys and vanilla and beating the mixture for another minute. Fold in the flour mixture a bit at a time until it is all incorporated then pour it into the prepared bundt pan. Bake for around 50 minutes at 325 degrees. While the cake is cooling, heat your cream for the topping in a sauce pot over the stuff. Wait for it to steam before removing it from the heat and adding the rest of the ingredients. Don’t stir, just let it sit for about five minutes, then stir it. Place cooled cake on a rack and pour the topping over it. This sounds like a lot of steps, but it all comes together pretty quickly to make a delicious cake.

Tips for Making Baileys Irish Cream Hot Chocolate Bundt Cake

• If desired, you can heat your cream for the topping in the microwave. It should take around 50 seconds. Try not to let it boil; just bring it to the point that it is steaming.

• If desired, you can garnish the cake right after pouring the topping over it with powdered sugar and sprinkles. I like to use Christmas sprinkles since I make it during the holidays.

• Be sure the cake is completely cooled before adding the topping. If not, it will thin out the topping and soak it up rather than the topping sitting up on top of the cake as it should.

• If you do not want to use alcohol, you can omit it altogether.

• If you do not want to use Baileys, you can use a different Irish Cream your favorite liquor such as spiced rum, Kahlua, bourbon cream, amaretto, etc.

• The garnish is option. If you choose to garnish your cake on top of the ganache do it before it sets up completely if using sprinkles.

• Learn how to make your own vanilla extract. It has been years since I purchased vanilla extract! I always make my own.

Common Questions about Baileys Irish Cream Hot Chocolate Bundt Cake

What is Different about a Bundt Cake?

A bundt cake will often end up being a touch more dense than an average cake. The shape and the pan it’s cooked in are the two biggest differences. Any cake cooked in that classic round pan is simply a bundt cake. However, the shape of the pan allows more of the cake to touch the edges of the pan which results in more of that crispy cooked batter like you might find only at the bottom of a regular cake. A bundt cake will be surrounded by it. Because of its design and the crustier edges, it’s great for highly decorated cakes because it can better support itself.

How Much do Bundt Cakes Cost?

This all depends on the area you are buying them in and rather you are talking about the pan or an actual pre-cooked cake. On average, cakes in grocery stores like this can cost as much as $10. However, personalized cakes or specialty cakes can be as much as $65 or more, depending on the details of the order and business you are buying it from. Bundt pans themselves can range from $10 – $30+, depending on the style and shape you are purchasing. Some specialty shapes will cost more than just a basic bundt pan.

Bundt cakes can be a lot of fun to experiment with, especially when it comes to flavors and shapes. I have been eyeing some Nordic bundt pans that have gorgeous designs that really stick out at events. Whatever bundt pan you choose to use, you’re sure to love the end result of this Baileys Hot Chocolate Bundt Cake.

Sticky Toffee Pudding Recipe

Fun fact, did you know that in the UK, the word “pudding” refers to the final, sweet dish of any meal? This means that the word “pudding” in the UK is used in a very similar manner as the word “dessert” would be used in the US. Although both countries speak English, terms and spellings can be very different in British-English and American-English. In fact, they have many words we are familiar with here in the US that will mean something completely different in the UK. Pudding is only one of those terms.

The name of this Sticky Toffee Pudding would suggest a softer, less dense dessert like the pudding we are used to here in the US. However, since this is a British dish, it is actually a cake with a toffee flavored sauce poured over the top. There is no actual pudding to be found in this recipe. This dish is a classic dessert served in the UK. It is rich and very satisfying.

How Do You Make Sticky Toffee Pudding?

There are two parts to this recipe, the date cake, and the sauce. For the cake, grease a cake pan and dust with flour before preheating the oven to 350 degrees. Place the water and dates in a saucepan until they boil, then reduce to simmer for a couple of minutes. Add the baking soda, stir, and sit aside to cool. In a bowl, cream together the butter and sugar while combining all the other dry ingredients in a separate bowl. Add the eggs and vanilla to the sugar mixture and mix thoroughly. Puree the cooled date mixture and add it to the sugar mixture, thoroughly combining the ingredients. Add in a bit of the flour mixture at a time and fold in each time. Once all the flour is added, pour the batter into the prepared cake pan and bake for up to 30 minutes. For the sauce, combine everything but the cream in a saucepan and stir until the butter and sugar dissolve. Remove from heat and stir in the cream. Pour the sauce over a slice of cake and you have a delicious UK treat!

Tips for Making Sticky Toffee Pudding

• If desired, you can top this dessert with whipped cream and chopped pecans. It adds a delicious aspect of flavor and texture.
• This cake should make enough to cut 12 equal squares. Be sure to pour the toffee sauce on the cake once it has been cut and separated out. If not, the cake could turn soggy by the time it’s eaten.
• If storing leftovers, keep the sauce and cake separate. I would not suggest freezing either one as they do not do well upon thawing, in my opinion. You can keep the cake in an airtight container on the counter for up to 5 days or in the fridge for up to a week. The toffee sauce should always be stored in the fridge in an airtight container.

Common Questions About Sticky Toffee Pudding

Where is Sticky Toffee Pudding From?

Back in the 1970’s, Francis Coulson and Robert Lee had a country house hotel in Northwest England that they served food out of. This is where the sticky toffee pudding is said to have originated. Although, the food critic, Simon Hopkinson states that Francis Coulson gave credit to a woman he knew in Lancashire. Therefore, this is definitely an English recipe, but its exact starting point is a little blurry.

Does Sticky Toffee Pudding Have Raisins in it?

The cake portion of sticky toffee pudding contains pureed dates, but no raisins. This is the traditional way to make the classic dessert. However, some more modern versions of the recipe have been known to utilize raisins instead of dates. Many have stated that this can change the flavor considerably. Therefore, if you want a taste of the traditional pudding, stick with dates and skip the raisins.

How Long Can You Keep Sticky Toffee Pudding?

As noted above, if stored in the fridge or on the counter in an airtight container, the cake can last 5-7 days as well as the sauce. However, they should be kept separate when storing leftovers. I don not suggest freezing it as I wasnt a fan when I thawed it out. However, both can be frozen in an airtight container and it will keep for up to three months. I would not suggest keeping it any longer, even if it still looks ok.

Is Figgy Pudding the Same as Sticky Toffee Pudding?

Figgy pudding is made in a very similar manner to sticky toffee pudding. However, the one biggest difference is that figgy pudding is made with figs while sticky toffee pudding is made with dates. Dates and figs can seem similar, but they result in a much different taste and color from each other when boiled down. The sauces are very different from each other, which is probably the only other big difference between the two recipes.

  • 1 tsp Baking Soda
  • 1½ cups All Purpose Flour
  • 1 tsp Baking Powder
  • Pinch of Salt
  • 1 cup Sugar
  • ½ cup Unsalted Butter, softened
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • For the Sticky Toffee Sauce
  • 1 cup light Brown Sugar
  • ½ cup Unsalted Butter
  • ¼ tsp Flakey Sea Salt
  • 1 cup Heavy Whipping Cream
  • To Garnish
  • Whipped Cream
  • Chopped Pecans

Instructions

    For the Date Cake
    1. Preheat the oven to 350°F and generously grease a 9"x 9" baking pan and dust it with flour.
    2. In a small saucepan, combine one cup of water and 8 ounces of roughly chopped dates. Heat it over medium heat till the water comes to a low boil. Simmer for 3 to 4 minutes till the dates soften.
    3. Take the softened dates off the heat and mix in a teaspoon of baking soda. It will bubble a bit. Set aside to cool.
    4. Sift together 1½ cups all-purpose flour, one teaspoon of baking powder, and a pinch of salt. Set aside.
    5. In another bowl combine one cup of sugar and ½ cup (1 stick) of softened, unsalted butter and beat with an electric beater till light and fluffy.
    6. Add two eggs and one teaspoon of vanilla extract to the butter mixture, and beat for another minute.
    7. Using a small food processor, puree the dates and add it to the sugar-butter-egg mixture. Beat for another few seconds.
    8. By hand, slowly add the flour mixture to the date mixture, and gently fold it in with a spatula.
    9. Once all the flour is incorporated, pour the batter into the prepared 9"x 9" pan. Tap gently to release any air bubbles.
    10. Bake in a preheated 350°F oven for 25 to 30 minutes or until a cake tester comes out clean. While it bakes, make the toffee sauce.
    For the Sticky Toffee Sauce
    11. Combine one cup of light brown sugar, ½ cup (1 stick) of butter, and ¼ teaspoon of flakey sea salt in a saucepan and heat on medium-low heat, till the butter melts and the sugar gets dissolved in the melted butter. About 8 to 10 minutes.
    12. Take it off the heat and whisk in one cup of heavy whipping cream.
    13. The Toffees Sauce is ready.
    To Serve
    14. Cut the cooled date cake into 12 squares and place it on individual serving plates. Pour over the warm toffee sauce.
    15. Top with whipped cream and chopped pecans if desired.
    16. Serve immediately.
    17. Store the leftovers cake and toffee sauce separately. Heat the toffee sauce before serving.

I was reading about Christmas traditions the other day and I had a good laugh about some of the traditions practiced in other countries. I am sure people here in the US have some crazy traditions. However, in general, those of us in the US have pretty normal-sounding traditions. I mean, it is a lot better than Austria where it is basically like Halloween in December. This comes from the Krampus tale where bad kids will be taken away by what appears to be a demon. People walk around in masks depicting this Krampus character, attempting to scare each other.

There was one tradition I came across that I was actually thrilled over. I even thought about taking it up myself, however, I am sure I would just end up hurting myself. In Venezuela, they all ride roller skates to church the morning of Christmas. I found this to be pretty fun although it would get pretty cold and maybe a little dangerous.

I believe the craziest tradition I have is to make mounds and mounds of fudge, including this Buttered Rum Fudge. It probably looks like I have a problem when I am making up the candy and fudge I need for presents and parties. It is piled everywhere on the days I do all the baking. Besides this fabulous buttered rum fudge, I make Chocolate Amaretto Swirl Fudge (you can adjust the colors), Decadent Chocolate Peanut Butter Fudge (mmmmm) and Boozy Chocolate Fudge (what can I say? ‘Tis the season!)

Even though my family may not have crazy traditions like some countries do, I am sure my fudge-making tradition might sound a little off to some people. Outside of the usual traditions, all of us have our routines to look forward to over the holidays and even get to add to them each year. Make this Buttered Rum recipe part of a new tradition for you and your family!

How Do You Make Buttered Rum Fudge?

Grease an 8″x8″ cake pan and line it with parchment paper for later. In a double boiler, melt the chocolate chips and sweetened condensed milk together. Lightly stir until no lumps appear from the chocolate chips. At this point, add in all the rest of the ingredients and gently stir to combine them thoroughly. Pour the chocolate mixture into the lined pan and place in the fridge for at least two hours or until the fudge has set up properly. Before placing in the fridge, sprinkle the top with cinnamon, walnuts, and sea salt if desired, for a prettier and tastier presentation. This is best if served immediately.

Tips for Making Buttered Rum Fudge

• If you don’t prefer the alcohol, stores often sell extracts with the buttered rum flavoring instead. You’ll just want to add in a bit of water to make up for the liquid difference since you won’t need near as much extract as you did rum.
• If you need the fudge to set up quicker, you can utilize the freezer which should cut the time in half. Just be sure to cover the fudge so no condensation builds up on the top of it.
• Fudge can be stored in the fridge or freezer in an airtight container. It will last up to two weeks in either situation. Fudge should never be stored at room temperature due to its ingredients.

Common Questions about Buttered Rum Fudge

Why is My Fudge Soft?

With this specific fudge recipe, you should not need to worry about your fudge ending up too soft. This fudge is pretty close to foolproof and does not involve a lot of work to reach the perfect end result.

With some fudge recipes, the mixture needs to reach a certain temperature in order to harden up appropriately. There are other recipes that will require a certain amount of beating in order to firm up correctly. If not beaten long enough or heated to the right temperature, the fudge will end up soft, no longer how long it is left to cool or sit, untouched. There’s really no way to fix this unless you make a new batch.

What Makes Fudge Crumbly?

Most fudge recipes will not end up crumbly unless you are purposely making the type of fudge that is meant to be that way. With this type of fudge, the sugar is heated a lot more quickly so that it crystallizes quickly. There is no syrup involved in this recipe, as that would prevent the crystallization from occurring.

How Long Will Fudge Keep?

Fudge that is kept in an airtight container will last up to three weeks in the fridge or freezer, although I do not usually like to keep mine beyond two weeks. If you start noticing white spots popping up on the fudge, that means it is getting old and needs to be tossed. If the fudge is drying out, this is also a good indication that it should be tossed. If you decide to store your fudge outside the fridge, it will only last a couple of days.
