We’re in the homestretch for Saint Patrick’s Day (3 more days!) and I’ve certainly been feeling it this year, what with all the boozy desserts I’ve been throwing at you.

But at the same time, all of these recipes have been insanely popular this year, so it’s hard for me not to give you more of what you clearly want.

Or, at least, that’s how I justified buying a 12 pack of Guinness and three bottles of Baileys.

I can justify a lot of things when it’s “for the blog.”

This recipe comes from another belated Christmas gift from my mother, a cookbook called Quick & Easy Dump Cakes by Cathy Mitchell. And according to my mother, she’s had this cookbook forever, and she knew she would be gifting it to me once she saw how I lit up when she told me about it.

I guess that’s a side effect of this blog; ever since began this crazy journey from lazy-foodie-turned-sorta-cook I’ve become so interested in “classic” recipes.

Not that the Quick & Easy Dump cake book is especially old – the hardcover has a date of 2014 – but while writing this post, I had a hard time finding where to purchase it online, which makes me think maybe it’s falling out of publication. Which is a shame, when there are recipe treasures like this

I’ve baked with Guinness before, and though I can’t handle drinking the beer, it always makes for the perfect combination with chocolate – especially dark chocolate.

It gives this bread a rich taste on its own, and the added chocolate chips and walnuts give it that extra bit of character.

But my absolute favorite part? The glaze. And I know, I keep going on and on about Baileys lately, but I just can’t help myself. Baileys has become one of my all-time favorite liquors. Sometimes I wonder how I ever lived my with my life before discovering the magic of Irish cream.

I never want to go back to those dark times again.

So I can’t make any promises, but this might be the last boozy dessert I have for a while… maybe.

Possibly.

I guess we’ll just have to wait and see what happens to those three bottles of Baileys…Baileys Dark Chocolate Guinness Bread! Rich and dark chocolate Guinness bread laced with chocolate chips and walnuts then frosted with a sweet Baileys glaze. | HomemadeHooplah.com
