Ingredients

For the Cake:

  • 1 box of dark chocolate cake mix
  • 1-1/4 cup water*
  • 1/2 cup canola oil*
  • 3 eggs*

*Amount may vary depending on the brand of cake mix used.

    About ½ of the cake batter is used for this recipe. An option is to make cupcakes with the remaining batter.

      For the Whipped Cream:

      • 4 cups chilled heavy whipping cream
      • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
      • 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon Baileys Irish Cream

      For the Dessert:

      • 5 cups of broken up pieces of cake (1/4 cup per small dessert dish or large shot glass (in total about ½ of the yield from the boxed cake mix))
      • 80 whole raspberries (4 whole raspberries per dessert dish or large shot glass)
      • 1-1/4 cup Baileys Irish Cream (3 teaspoons per dessert dish or large shot glass)

      Instructions

      For the Cake:

      • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. (or according to the directions on the cake mix box).  
      • In a medium size bowl, add the cake mix, water, canola oil and eggs. Whisk all ingredients together. 
      • Grease a baking pan with butter on the bottom and all sides.  A shallow baking pan such as a Brownie Pan works nicely.   Add half of the cake batter to a baking pan (cupcakes or a small cake can be made with the remaining batter).
      • Bake in the preheated oven until done (for about 30 to 34 minutes). Let cool.

      For the Whipped Cream:

      • If you have time, chill the mixing bowl first. 
      • In the mixing bowl, add the heavy whipping cream, powdered sugar, and the Baileys. Whip until soft peaks form. Set aside in the refrigerator for just a moment.

      For the Dessert:

      • After the cake has cooled, break it up into pieces.
      • To small dessert dishes or shot glasses, add a layer of the pieces of chocolate cake (1/4 cup of cake pieces per dessert; amount may vary depending on the size of dessert dishes).  Push down the cake in the dessert dish to make more room for the whipped cream. 
      • Drizzle Baileys Irish Cream (3 teaspoons per dessert; amount may vary depending on the size of the dessert dish) on the cake. 
      • Next, add a layer of whipped cream.  Top with 3 raspberries (per serving dish).
      • Add some more whipped cream and top each serving with one more raspberry. 
      • Serve immediately or put in the refrigerator for a short duration before serving.
