  5. Sift flour in a separate bowl with baking powder and salt.
  6. Stir flour mixture into the liquid ingredients in thirds, alternating with Irish cream liqueur, until the batter is smooth.

These came out great! Everyone loved them and I cannot wait to make them again! Super easy to make!

Wonderful recipe. Add a butter / bailey's frosting to the top - yummmmmm....
