Chocolate Irish Car Bomb Cake

Chocolate Irish Car Bomb Cake

SNOWBABIEFAN

"An Irish car bomb is a drink that has a shot of Irish cream liqueur and Irish whiskey dropped in the shot glass, down into a glass of Guinness® beer. There are several recipes that replicate this flavor out there, but this is different in that there is no icing and lends itself to being taken to the pub easier."

  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Grease a 10-inch fluted tube pan (such as a Bundt(R)) and coat inside of pan with unsweetened cocoa powder.
  3. Beat cream cheese, confectioners' sugar, 1 egg, and Irish cream liqueur in a bowl until smooth and creamy. Set aside.
  4. Beat chocolate cake mix, chocolate pudding mix, 3 eggs, and vegetable oil in a separate bowl until batter is thick and smooth. Slowly beat Irish stout beer into the batter.
  5. Spoon 1/3 of the cake batter into the prepared pan; layer the Irish cream filling on top. Spoon remaining cake batter over the filling.
  6. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the cake comes out clean, 40 to 50 minutes.
  7. Loosen the edges of the cake from the pan with a thin spatula; let cake rest in pan 15 minutes. Invert pan over a wire rack to release cake and allow to cool completely on the rack.
  8. While cake is cooling, melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat and stir in white sugar and Irish whiskey. Bring to a boil, stirring to dissolve sugar, reduce heat to low, and simmer until thickened, about 10 minutes.
  9. Transfer cake to a serving platter. Generously brush whiskey glaze over cooled cake several times and allow glaze to soak into cake.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
  • If you don't have a Bundt(R) pan, use a tube pan, or you could even use a 9x13 pan and just swirl the cream cheese mixture in and glaze the top. I have also made cupcakes out of this in the same manner.

Be careful; the effects of the alcohol do NOT bake out in the oven. At least, I felt it!

It is widely known that there is an alcoholic shot with this same name, however the shot as well as this cake is VERY OFFENSIVE. As an Irishwoman I can't believe how Americans make light of the ...

I should have taken a picture! The layers were pretty and the cake moist and delicious. The stout beer, whiskey, and irish cream were not overpowering so non-beer drinkers loved it too. It was a...

This cake is evn better (I know- it hardly seems possible!) if you use half the ammt of crm cheese and substitute marscapone for the other half. All marscapone does not work well.

I was a little disappointed in the flavors in this, not very strong infact it pretty much passed for a chocolate cake withcreamcheese in it. will be making some flavor changes next time.

This was really tasty and easy (which is good because I don't really bake much). My guests really enjoyed it as well. I would probably add more bailey's to the cream cheese mixture though. Bu...

I made this for St. Patty's and it was very easy and so delicious. I will be making this again but will leave the sugar glaze behind because this cake does not need it because it is so good.

This was delicious! I don't have a bundt pan. I made this for a st pattys day pot luck and i didn't want dishes afterwards so i made about 4 loaves with this recipe. And it actually made the co...

This makes great cupcakes too ...i always make a large batch to take to the pub with us, and they are well received.
