Cook and Tell: Bailey’s Chocolate Chip Cup…Cakes

02 Apr

Those of you who are parents know that the time to enjoy cooking and baking becomes very limited when kids are thrown in the mix. I would usually feel ashamed to even mention this, forget about actually doing this. However, I was inspired by Irine from Confessions of a Tart. Irine really sold me on this cake. It was easy and fast to make, and it looked so delicious that I overlooked the fact that a cake mix was included in the recipe. I just couldn’t resist. I buckled, and how could I not?  Just look at this chocolaty delight.

There isn’t really a need to restate the recipe. However, here are the differences from the recipe provided on Confessions of a Tart. Instead of a bundt cake, I made one 9-inch cake and 12 cupcakes. Instead of Kahlua, I used Bailey’s Irish Cream and instead of bittersweet chocolate chips, I used semi-sweet chocolate chips. Otherwise, I followed the recipe.

I don’t regret this decision for a moment. Hubby, I and the family thoroughly enjoyed these tasty sweets!

    I really like this cake, from a cake mix or not. As a matter of fact, I’d love a slice of it to keep my coffee company. It looks beautiful and sounds delicious. Taste is what counts. Have a great day. Blessings…MAry

    Sometimes we all need a chocolate treat, whether it finds it’s beginnings in a box or not :) As long as you make it your own and can create something fun in the time you have, why not?! Hope you had a great weekend!
