This year I am going for a more elegant, toned-down take. I decided to bake a simple coffee and walnut cake (I am determined after my failure to win at the Petersham Show last year to find and bake a good recipe) . To turn it "Irish" I added a tot of Irish Cream Liqueur to the icing. To be honest the icing didn't quite work, (this is where tasting as you cook is so important). I then decided to simply follow the recipe and serve the cake with a small glass of chilled Irish Cream Liqueur. This would make a perfect end to an evening meal.
Happy St Patrick's Day.
The recipe I used for the cake was from Waitrose, it is one of this month's recipe cards, a suggested bake for Mothering Sunday, you can find it online here.
