Holiday baking is probably on your agenda just like it is mine. This year I wanted to take a recipe for rum cake and add a little something I love to it. Irish cream is literally a favorite of mine. Why not drizzle a rum cake with it. This Irish cream iced rum bundt cake is fantastic for those holiday adult parties.
First, cake flour is a must when it comes to a holiday cake recipe. Texture literally is everything with a rum cake and cake flour will make it soft. Bundt cake recipes are a hit right now with holiday parties or gatherings in general. Hence, if you have a party to go to you might want to bake this rum bundt cake to take with you.
For the icing it’s all about mixing the powdered sugar with Irish cream. However, you don’t have to use Bailey’s Irish cream. Any Irish cream of your choice will work. Additionally, a good bourbon cream can also be used.
Furthermore, this bundt cake has a very buttery taste so make sure your cream pairs well with that. We served this up this Christmas Eve morning paired with latte’s from Ghost Alley Espresso. Hence, we bought the beans and had them shipped for our espresso machine. So good!
However, I couldn’t find my old Barbadian rum cake recipe so I used this one from Gimme Some Oven. Though, I did make a few changes to the recipe and I did add in the Irish cream icing. The cake is fantastic though and I like to give credit to those that originally made the recipe.
Additionally, this recipe for Irish cream iced rum bundt cake is wonderful for the holidays and for St. Patrick’s Day. With the nod to the Irish cream it is a great dessert to add to your holiday table. What kind of bundt cake do you enjoy?Print
