Baileys Crumb Cake

We’re closing in on the end of such a delicious week. I’m debuting my second to last recipe today for #EasterBrunchWeek there’s one more after today.

If you happened to miss my other recipes for #EasterBrunchWeek, I’ll list them below as the week progresses. I don’t want you to miss a single one, they are all really yummy and EASY to make too. 

Today I’m rolling out a tasty desserty addition to #EasterBrunchWeek, Baileys Crumb Cake. Yes, Baileys as in Baileys Irish Cream. Now I’ve got your attention, right?


Baileys Crumb Cake is so easy to prepare and goes amazingly well with a cup of coffee. Just ideal for brunch, or dessert anytime you’d like. 

This tender cake not only contains Baileys in the batter and the glaze, but there’s buttermilk in there too. Buttermilk makes the most tender cakes, and this one is bite by bite delish.

Along with the Baileys and buttermilk, I used Eggland’s Best in this recipe. Eggland’s Best graciously sponsored #EasterBrunchWeek and this time of year we go through a ton of eggs, so why not use the best!




I also made my baking extra easy with a Silpat 8″ Round Mat, great for cakes, cookies, and even pizza. You should give Silpat a try if you haven’t used their baking mats before.
