Irish Cream Bundt Cake Recipe – Great tasting glazed Bundt cake with Irish cream baked in. Excellent for any time or any occasion.
Great cake!. I have had many repeat requests every time I take it somewhere. I handle the glaze differently than the recipe with much better results.
After I remove the cake and let it cool 20 minutes, I poke holes in the cake, make the glaze, then pour the glaze into the bundt pan and replace the cake in the pan. I let it sit another 20 minutes and then turn it out onto a cake round.
All the glaze is absorbed and it gives a pretty finish to the crust. The I sprinkle a few more finely chopped pecans over the top for presentation.
