Baileys Chocolate Coffee Cake


I am a huge fan of liquor in baking and this Baileys Chocolate Coffee Cake recipe is one of my first choices. Made with a dense, moist cake batter with a layer of coffee, cocoa and granulated sugar and covered in a coffee and melted chocolate topping. If the Bailey’s doesn’t win over your heart then the coffee-chocolate combination definitely will.

To make Baileys Chocolate Coffee Cake, you will need the following ingredients:

Steps to make Baileys Chocolate Coffee Cake


Preheat oven and prepare baking pan

Preheat the oven to 350 °F and grease a 9x13-inch loaf pan with cooking spray.


Prepare filling


In a medium bowl, whisk ½ cup of brown sugar, 1½ teaspoons of cocoa powder and ½ teaspoon of instant espresso powder until combined.


Prepare batter


In a large bowl, beat ¾ cup of softened butter with 1 cup of granulated sugar, ⅓ cup of brown sugar and 2 teaspoons of baking powder until combined and smooth.


Add eggs


Beat in 3 eggs, 1 egg at a time.


Add wet ingredients


Pour in ⅔ cup of sour cream, 1 cup of whole milk and ¼ cup Baileys and mix again until combined.


Add flour


Gradually add 3 cups of all-purpose flour while continuously mixing until combined.


Prepare cake


Transfer half the batter into the prepared baking dish, then sprinkle an even layer of filling over, and finally top with the remaining half of batter.


Prepare topping


In a medium bowl, whisk ¾ cup of granulated sugar, ¾ cup of all-purpose flour, 2 teaspoons of cocoa powder, ¾ teaspoon of espresso powder and a pinch of salt until combined.


Add butter


Pour in 4 tablespoons of melted butter and stir to mix through and combine.


Top cake


Evenly scatter the prepared topping over batter.




Bake in the preheated oven for about 1 hour or until baked and a wooden toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.



Once baked, drizzle melted chocolate over the cake and cool for 10-15 before slicing and serving.

My kids thought this was just normal chocolate cake and ate a LOT of it, both were bouncing off the walls afterwards but they loved it as much as i did, LOL!

Nathalia Staeheli

Tasty but lacking something so I added some whipped cream to the top and a little bit of fruits like blueberries and thin slices of strawberries (:

Aryana Gicker

Wouldn't recommend for kids at all because of the coffee in it, other than that its pefect.

Yareli Vanholland

Thanks so much, this took a while to make and I didn't have all the ingridents so I had to replace a few things but in the end it was really good.

Aliana Delhoyo

Coffee in the cake made it taste a bit like dirt, so I wasn't really a fan. My husband on the other hand enjoyed it very much.

Milani Gefre

Was super dry so I decided to add some caramel topping instead of chocolate because there was already plenty of that, was really good afterwards.

Tamia Wead

Brought the leftovers to work so I can enjoy it for dessert along with some classic wedged salad for lunch.

Wouldn't recommend for kids under 12 because mine snatched a bite without permissiona and was bouncing around the house for two hours LOL! Super yummy cake.

Cake was kinda dry, added some caramel syrup to the top and it was tasty.

The best kind of cake you can make for a decent price, made this for my sister because she is a coffee addict and she really loved it.

Make sure to use unsalted butter or the coffee cake will turn out slightly bitter. Very good recipe though.

Coffee cake is usually a hard thing to perfect but this one came out really good, I like it more than the lemon and raspberry coffee cake.

Sharing is caring but when it comes to this cake I don't share, it's a delicacy only for me!

This is fabulous, it does take a while to cook but over all I am definitely making this again.


Amazing! Yummy-yummy!
