Nutty Irishman Creme Cake

This is as close as I can come to the cake I made for my Dad's 50 Birthday over 20 years ago. This recipe is a lot smaller. Then I did make it in a sheet cake and it had a frosting at the time not a glaze like here. If you want a really good frosting give this Creamy Chocolate Frosting Creamy Chocolate Frosting a try, but use Frangelica liqueur instead of the rum.

This cake drew loud exclamations of, "Oh my gosh, this is so good!" when I served it tonight. I had to agree - this cake is simple and wonderful. Full of great flavors, with a lovely texture. I just happened to have some melted chocolate on hand and drizzled that over the top of the glaze before pressing some almonds on top of the cake. Just wonderful - thanks for sharing!

Really decadent! I was worried at the amounts of alcohol, but it tastes wonderful. However, I would not feed it to kids.
