    (2 tbsp milk, warmed) in a bowl. Sprinkle over the coffee (1 1/2 tbsp instant coffee) and stir until dissolved. Stir in the Baileys (60ml (1/4 cup) Baileys Irish Cream Liqueur, plus 1 1/2 tbsp extra). Set aside.


  • Step 3

    Use electric beaters to beat the butter (180g butter, at room temperature) and brown sugar (200g (1 cup, firmly packed) brown sugar) in a bowl for about 3 minutes or until pale and creamy. Add the eggs (2 eggs, at room temperature), one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in the flour (225g (1 1/2 cups) self-raising flour) and milk mixture, in alternating batches, until well combined.

  • Step 4

    Transfer the mixture to the prepared pan and use the back of a spoon to smooth the surface. Bake for 35 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the centre of cake comes out clean. Set aside in the pan for 5 minutes before turning out onto a wire rack to cool completely.

  • Step 5

    To make the icing, use electric beaters to beat the butter (125g unsalted butter, at room temperature) and icing sugar (250g icing sugar mixture) in a bowl until pale and creamy. Add the extra Baileys and beat until smooth and combined.

  • Step 6

    Place the cake on a serving plate. Spread cake thickly with the icing and cut into slices to serve.

Recipe Notes

Make sure your butter is at room temperature as cold ingredients don’t aerate and mix as well together. 

Tia-Maria can be used in place of Baileys, if you prefer. 

You can freeze the cake, un-iced, for up to 3 months. Once cooled, cover in plastic wrap, followed by aluminium foil.
