March 1, 2024 - Country Cooking

Irish Cream Poke Cake is a delicously moist poke cake soaked with Irish Cream and topped with an Irish Cream-flavored chocolate whipped cream. It’s a wonderful dessert to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with!

This cake has lots of chocolate flavor and Irish Cream in the cake batter, the poke cake filling, and the whipped cream frosting. It is an Irish Cream lover’s dream!

Irish Cream

Irish Cream is a creamy liqueur made from Iriash whiskey, cream, and some other flavorings. You can use Bailey’s Irish Cream or another brand like Kerrygold or Carolans. With Irish cream in the cake batter, filling, and frosting, this easy St Patrick’s Day dessert has lots of Irish Cream Flavor.

How To Make Irish Cream Poke Cake

This poke cake is easy to make with a box of chocolate cake mix. Make the cake batter according the box instructions, trading out 1/4 cup of water for Irish Cream. Bake in a 9×13-inch pan. Let cool 10 minutes and then poke holes all in the top.

Whisk together a can of sweetened condensed milk, heavy cream, cocoa powder, and Irish cream. Pour slowly over the cake so that it seeps into the holes. Refrigerate for 1 hour and then top with Irish cream-flavored whipped cream.

I also like to grate some semi-sweet chocolate on top. You can never have too much chocolate!

Variations and Substitutions

Use yellow or white cake mix in place of chocolate cake mix.

Sprinkle the top with green sprinkles instead of grated chocolate to give it more of a St Patrick’s Day look.
