  • 3 tablespoons Jameson Whiskey
  • Baileys Cream Frosting
  • 4 cups powdered sugar + more if needed

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

To make the ganache:

  • Place chocolate chips and butter in bowl and melt in microwave.
  • In a saucepan, add cream and bring to a boil. Pour chocolate mixture in but don't stir. Let it sit for about 2 minutes. Then stir in whiskey. Put in fridge for 5 minutes. Stir. Continue stirring every 5 minutes until the mixture becomes cool - but not solid.

To make the cake batter:

  • Bring beer and butter to a simmer. Whisk in cocoa powder. Remove from heat. Cool.
  • Mix flour, sugar, baking powder and salt in a bowl.
  • Using mixer, add in eggs and sour cream. Add in cooled beer mixture and mix on low speed. Mix in dry ingredients.
  • Spray bundt pan with cooking spray. Add 1/2 batter, then add in ganache, then the rest of the batter. Bake 40-50 minutes or until a toothpick is inserted and comes out clean.

To make the frosting:

  • Whip butter, add in powdered sugar 1 c. at a time. Add in Bailey's. If the frosting becomes too liquid add more sugar.
  • Allow for the cake to cool completely. And then frost and enjoy with a tall glass of milk!
