Irish Sundae

Irish Sundae

We aren’t making homemade Irish cream for nothing! This Sundae combines the best of the best for St. Patrick’s Day: Guinness, Irish Whiskey, Chocolate and Cream. It’s naughty and decadent, perfect for for an annual tradition sort of deal. Certainly beats corn beef hash!

Chocolate Stout Cake + Vanilla Ice Cream + Irish Cream

Combine a warm slice of Chocolate Stout Cake (recipe below), vanilla ice cream and shot of homemade Irish cream or Baileys (recipe here).

Irish Sundae

I used this recipe for chocolate stout cake. It was simple and straight forward enough, albeit a tad too dry on it’s own. Still it served it’s purpose, which was too be drenched with ice cream and Irish cream. You can use any recipe for chocolate cake, but I recommend keeping it simple.

Chocolate Stout Cake

Make sure your cake is nice and warm. I nuked mine in the microwave for about 15 seconds. Then top with a scoop of good quality vanilla ice cream (coffee ice cream would also taste really good!)

Pour a shot of Irish cream

Pour a shot of Irish cream over the ice cream and top with something crunchy. I used crushed bits of dark chocolate but I think nuts would be even better.
