  • 2 cups flour all purpose
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • ½ cup Baileys
  • ¼ cup hot water
  • 12 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 3 whole eggs
  • 1.5 tablespoon instant coffee


  • 2 cups sugar confectioners
  • 6 tablespoons butter unsalted
  • 3 tablespoons baileys


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Grease a cake loaf pan with non-stick butter
  • Start with your cake batter. Use the ingredients mentioned in the cake ingredients list. In your standing mixer, or use a bowl and hand mixer, mix the instant coffee and hot water. Mix until the coffee has dissolved. 
  • Add the butter and brown sugar and mix until fluffy.
  • Add your eggs and beat until the eggs are mixed in well. Don’t overmix.
  • Add your baileys and flour and mix until combined. Don’t overmix.
  • Grab your greased cake loaf pan and pour in all the batter. Make sure to spread it out evenly.
  • Put your cake in the oven for about 40 minutes. You can check with a toothpick to see if it’s well cooked. Poke with the toothpick, if it comes back with wet batter, leave in a few minutes longer, until the toothpick comes out clean. Then remove from the oven and let cool for at least 15 minutes.
  • While your cake is cooling, prepare your icing. Mix all ingredients and mix well combined. Use a spatula and spread over the cooled cake. Enjoy!
