Vegan Irish Whiskey Cake doesn't skimp on the added whiskey. Or coffee. This recipe is a real celebration of the flavors of coffee and Irish whiskey - definitely a cake for adults! Perfect to enjoy St. Patrick's Day or any special occasion. Since this cake is dairy-free and egg-free, it's also low in fat and cholesterol free, if that matters during your St. Patrick's celebrations.

  • 2 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 3/4 cup vegan margarine
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • Egg replacer for 3 eggs
  • 1/2 cup strong coffee
  • 1/2 cup Irish whiskey
  • 1-2 tbsp powdered sugar (optional)


Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees and grease a 9x13 cake pan.

In a large bowl, mix together the flour, baking powder, salt and baking soda.

In a separate large bowl, beat together the vegan margarine and sugars until light and fluffy. Add the egg replacer and mix well.


In another bowl, combine the coffee and whiskey.

Slowly add the flour mixture and the coffee mixture into the margarine and sugar mixture a bit at a time, beating well in between.

Pour into the cake pan and bake for 35 to 45 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.

Allow to cool slightly, and sprinkle the top of the cake with powdered sugar if desired. Enjoy your vegan Irish whiskey cake!

Don't bother, Guest Katie

Made these cupcakes for an Irish friend's birthday, and am pretty disappointed in the results. I don't taste the whiskey at all. I used espresso instead of coffee and barely taste that. Overall, they're pretty flavorless and now I'm considering making my vegan friend go without and buying something that actually tastes good at the store. Such a shame, as I really wanted to go the homemade route.
