    I'm baking a Bailey's bundt cake. The recipe calls for 1 cup bailey's. I have only a 1/2 cup. Could I add 1/2 cup of milk to it?

    Hi marip,

    Here is a recipe I have never used but should give you a better place to start.

    I was thinking of sweetened half and half but this looks a lot more accurate. When trying substitutions, try to match as many of the qualities of the asked for product. Thicker and sweeter than milk...
    • 235 grams (1 cup) heavy cream or half & half.
    • 395 grams (14 ounces) sweetened condensed milk.
    • 400 ml (1⅔ cup) Irish whiskey I used Jameson.
    • 3 tablespoons chocolate syrup.
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract.
    • 1 teaspoon instant coffee.
    Good luck!

    I wouldn’t recommend it.
    Doubt the crumb would hold when removing from the pan and if it did the Baileys flavor would be lost.

    I'll offer this. Bake the cake, drink the Bailey's. Eat the cake on the way to buy more Baileys.

    I did use the 1/2 cup of milk and it was a delicious cake with just a hint of baileys.
