INSTRUCTIONS
  • Prepare a 9×13 inch cake pan by greasing the sides. Preheat oven to 300°F (148°C).
  • Add all dry ingredients to a large bowl and combine.
  • Add eggs, milk, vegetable oil, 1/2 cup of Irish cream and vanilla to the dry ingredients and mix well.
  • Slowly pour the water into the batter, mixing well and being careful of splashing.
  • Pour the batter into the cake pan and bake for about 40-45 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out with a few crumbs.
  • Remove the cake from the oven and poke holes all over. I use a knife sharpening rod, but you could also use a straw.
