  • 1 large egg
  • 2⁄3 cup vegetable oil

  • 1⁄4 cup Baileys Irish Cream
  • 1 cup strong black coffee
Cake Directions:
  • Sift dry ingredients together.
  • Beat egg, oil, buttermilk, liqueur, coffee together.
  • Add to the dry ingredients; beat together for about 3 minutes.

Dark Chocolate Glaze Ingredients:
  • 4 oz. bar bittersweet or semi sweet chocolate
  • 1/3 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1/4 cup light corn syrup
