Chocolate Baileys Mug Cake

Can you believe it’s March already? Where did February go? Maybe it’s because I spent two weeks engrossed by the Olympics…

Anyhow, with St. Patrick’s Day right around the corner, it’s time for me to break out the Baileys Irish Cream and other St. Patrick’s Day-inspired flavors. I made a really delicious Baileys Mug Cake a few days ago, and I’ll be sharing that recipe soon, but I also wanted to play around with a chocolate and Baileys pairing.

This cake came out moist and chocolatey. You can definitely taste and smell the Bailey’s. If you have some cappuccino chips, the creamy coffee flavor chips make this mug cake even better.

  • Combine all ingredients into an oversized microwave-safe mug. Mix with a small whisk until batter is smooth.
