Baileys Blondies

I made one other Baileys inspired dessert this week before deciding I needed to save the rest for drinking. I wanted to make some fudgy brownies and decided instead to make blondies.

In my rush to finish baking though, I did make one mistake. I should have baked these in a 9 x 13 pan so that they’d be thin and chewy. Instead I baked them in a smaller pan, causing them to be more cakey than chewy. I still enjoyed the flavor though and I’ve adjusted the recipe below for the thinner version.

I love that you can taste the Irish cream. Next time I might add some flavored chocolate chips to make them a little less plain but these are still a great simple treat.


These blondies are really easy to whip up too. You don’t need a mixer, everything can be mixed by hand with a whisk and bowl.

Baileys Blondies


1 cup unsalted butter
2 cups brown sugar
2 large eggs, beaten
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup Baileys
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
2 cups of all-purpose flour


1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Grease a 9x13 pan and set aside.

2. In a large microwave safe bowl, melt butter. Add in brown sugar and whisk until smooth. Add the eggs, vanilla and Baileys and whisk.

3. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, baking powder. Pour flour into wet mixture and mix until combined.

4. Pour batter into 9 x 13 pan. Even out and smooth top with spatula.

5. Bake for 30 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Allow to cool completely before cutting and serving.

  1. St. Patrick’s day always sneaks up on me, every year… can’t believe I’ve never had Bailey’s before actually 😛 your dessert series is the first thing that’s actually made me want to go out and buy a bottle!

  2. “2. In a large microwave safe bowl, melt microwave.” Maybe a bit too much of the old Irish cream there? Lovely idea though. The melted microwave AND the cakes. Thanks so much!
