For the Baileys Cheesecake

  • 350 g Full fat cream cheese
  • 1 Egg large
  • 65 g Caster sugar
  • 3 tbsp Baileys

For the brownies

  • 350 g Dark chocolate
  • 250 g Butter
  • 1 tbsp Baileys
  • 250 g Dark brown sugar
  • 3 Eggs large
  • 120 g Plain flour
  • 1 tsp Baking powder


  • Pre-heat your oven to 180C/160C Fan/350F/Gas Mark 4 and grease and line a 12" x 9" traybake tin
  • To make the Baileys cheesecake filling mix together the full fat cream cheese, caster sugar, egg and Baileys with a hand whisk or electric hand whisk until smooth
  • For the brownie mix start by melting the dark chocolate and butter in a glass bowl over simmering water (make sure the water does not touch the bowl), once melted, set aside to cool
  • In a bowl, whisk together the dark brown sugar and the eggs until frothy, add the Baileys and mix in
  • Slowly pour the melted chocolate and butter into the mixture, whilst constantly whisking
  • Add the plain flour and baking powder and mix in
  • Pour about two third of the brownie mixture into the traybake tin, then pour all of the cheesecake mixture on top, then pour the rest of the brownie mix on top in blobs
  • Using a knife, swirl the mixture around a bit, then bake it for 35 minutes
  • Leave it to cool completely before cutting into squares
  • Store in the fridge and eat them within 3 days


If you would like to use a 8" or 9" square tin instead, reduce the recipe by one third. So you will need:
  • 235g Dark chocolate
  • 165g Butter
  • 165g Dark brown sugar
  • 2 Eggs
  • ½ tsp Baking powder
  • 80g Plain flour
  • 1 tbsp Baileys
  • 235g Full fat cream cheese
  • 1 Egg
  • 45g Caster sugar
  • 2 tbsp Baileys
They will also need less time to bake, depending on your oven, I'd suggest 20-25 minutes.
