The classic treat gets a cheeky makeover with a tasty addition of baileys in the mix! These chocolatey treats are perfect to bake up for the weekend, or whenever you fancy a cheeky little treat.
250g light soft brown sugar
100g caster sugar
100g self raising flour
50g cocoa powder
2 shots of Baileys
Pre heat your oven to 180c/160c fan/gas mark 4, grease and line a square baking tin (mine is 20 x 20cm).
Melt down the butter to start, this will help to add a lovely soft touch to your brownies.
In a large bowl mix together the two sugars, adding a mix of caster and brown sugar will make for a lovely crunchy touch to the finished bake! Then sift in the flour and cocoa powder and mix.
Pour in the melted butter and mix well to combine, then add in the eggs one at a time and bring the mixture together, it should be rich and runny at this stage.
Finally, add the 2 shots of Baileys and mix together, the mixture will be very runny at this stage but don't worry! The addition of the Baileys makes for a lovely boozy bake, you'll certainly want to sample the left overs on the spoon!
Spoon the mixture into your baking tin, then bake for 30 - 40 minutes till a cake skewer comes out clean.
Leave the brownies in the tin to cool for 30 minutes, then slice into squares and remove from the tin. If you've used baking paper you'll find this stage a breeze, it certainly makes cutting and removing the brownies from a tin incredibly easy!
Place the brownies on a wire rack to cool for an hour then eat, they'll have the delicious taste of Baileys with the squishy, cake like texture inside, yum!
To finish off my boozy brownies I topped mine with mini marshmallows, you could try adding chocolate chunks for a truly indulgent bake!
