Hammerstone’s Irish Cream Cake

Here is one of our favorites. It’s a delicious sponge cake soaked in our homemade version of Irish cream liquor. The Irish whiskey packs a wonderful boozy punch, while the milks account for its beautiful sweet flavor. The slightly-sweetened whipped cream layer is a delicate and delightful topper. And here’s the magical part, no matter how much time passes it will never be soggy. It’s a sponge cake, and like a sponge, it’s designed to hold moisture without falling apart. In short, it’s a delectable, whiskey-filled dream.


  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 5 eggs
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1 cup Irish whiskey
  • 1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 (12 fluid ounce) can evaporated milk
  • 1 teaspoon instant coffee
  • 2 tablespoons chocolate syrup
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1 1/2 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour one 9×13 inch baking pan.
  2. Sift flour and baking powder together and set aside.
  3. Cream butter or margarine and the 1 cup sugar together until fluffy. Add eggs and the 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract; beat well.
  4. Add the flour mixture to the butter mixture 2 tablespoons at a time; mix until well blended. Pour batter into prepared pan.
  5. Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 30 minutes. Pierce cake several times with a fork.
  6. Combine whole milk, Irish whiskey, condensed milk, evaporated milk, instant coffee, chocolate syrup and almond extract together.
  7. Blend on high speed for 30 seconds. Pour over the top of the cooled cake.
  8. Whip whipping cream, the remaining 1 cup of the sugar, and the remaining 1 teaspoon vanilla together until thick. Spread over the top of cake.

Be sure and keep this cake refrigerated; that’s if there’s any left over. And, be sure to save a tipple of that Irish whiskey to pour over one of our handcrafted whiskey stones. After all, one should always follow dessert with, well – a little more dessert. So eat this wonderful cake with someone you love, and toast with what’s left of that Irish whiskey to your shared moment of boozy, cake-filled bliss.
