The mixture should be thick enough to “dollop” onto the bread cubes.  Taste and if needed adjust the flavor by adding more sugar or Bailey’s Irish cream to your liking.

*Note: The cook time above does not include making the bread.

  • 2 Slices of Lyons-Dooley Irish Soda Bread, 3/4 inch thick and cut into cubes
  • 1/2 Cup Mascarpone cheese
  • 2 Tbsp. Heavy cream or Milk
  • 1/4 Cup Bailey’s Irish Cream
  • 2 Tbsp. Confectioners sugar, divided
  • Hershey’s Cocoa powder, to garnish
  • 2 Tbsp. Shelled pistachios, to garnish


  • Make the Lyons-Dooley Irish Soda Bread a day or two in advance.
  • Cut two slices of the bread and cut into cubes. Place on a baking sheet and toast under the broiler for 2 minutes until lightly browned. Let cool.
  • Make the mascarpone cream by mixing the mascarpone cheese, two tablespoons of heavy cream, two tablespoons of confectioner’s sugar and the Baileys in a clean bowl. Use a hand mixer until it is light and fluffy.
  • In two tall, pretty glasses, lay half the bread cubes in the bottom of the glasses. Top with a couple of spoonfuls of the marscapone mix. Top with the remaining bread cubes and top that with another couple of tablespoons of the mascarpone filling.
  • Sprinkle the nuts on top and sift the cocoa powder over the top. Serve with a tall soda fountain spoon and enjoy.
