We're definitely making this Baileys poke cake over the weekend

We're hungry just looking at it.

We love a little glass of Baileys every now and again (and we drank a lot over Christmas), and this cake is taking it to the next level.


If you like food blogs, then you'll know that poke cakes are very popular in the bakery scene at the moment.

It consists of using the end of a wooden spoon to poke holes in a regular cake, and then drowning it with whatever sauce you prefer.

The sweet sauce drips down and soaks into the cake, and honestly, we can't think of anything more delicious.

Well, food website Delish has created a Baileys poke cake, so if you have some leftover Baileys from Christmas, this cake should definitely be on your to-do list this weekend.
