Spice Cake with Chocolate Irish Cream Icing

Spice Cake with Chocolate Irish Cream Icing

It’s the most wonderful time of the year – and for many also stressful… By sharing my go-to cake for the holidays I wish you all stress free holidays!

Spice Cake is the cake my mom would bake every Christmas to us and she often gifts her signature spice cake for friends and family. I have fond memories of licking the spatula as a kid and despite the risks of consuming raw eggs, this batter is one I cannot resist but tasting – the kid in me would say it’s even better than baked!

I was too busy to make a call when baking this cake so my recipe isn’t my mom’s but by the taste I’d say it’s pretty close 😉 . And the icing, well thats just chocolate and Irish cream on top with some sliced almonds!

This is a real simple recipe! Though I used a mixer to beat the eggs – a whisk will do as well.

The spices in this cake are guarantee to give your home a delicious christmas smell, similar to when baking gingerbread. Serve it chilled and the flavour is only getting better a day or two after baking. Enjoy x Spice Cake with Chocolate Irish Cream Icing
