Baileys, Nutella, cheesecake, chocolate… many favourites in one delicious brownie

Baking with Baileys and nutella cheesecake brownies uk recipe

These are brilliant! I can’t remember what recipe I was looking for…  but fortunately my search caused me to stumble across this recipe on the Good Housekeeping website. I made a couple of small changes to the recipe but the Baileys-Nutella combination with the cheesecake swirl is lovely and I can’t recommend these enough.

Ingredients (makes 16 – 32 brownies depending on how big you cut them)

For the Baileys Nutella brownie base:

  • 250 g / 9 oz Nutella (or any chocolate hazelnut spread. I used a supermarket’s own version)
  • 150 g / 5 oz either light brown sugar or caster sugar (the original recipe calls for light brown sugar but I didn’t have enough and had to use caster and the brownies turned out perfectly!)
  • 3 eggs (medium or large)
  • 50 ml / 2 fl oz Baileys Irish Cream
  • 1tsp vanilla extract
  • 50 g / 2 oz cocoa powder
  • 150 g/ 5 oz butter or baking margarine (plus a little extra for greasing your brownie tin)
  • 75 g / 3 oz plain flour

For the cheesecake swirl:

  • 100 g / 3.5 oz cream cheese (aka soft cheese)
  • 25 g/ 1 oz caster sugar
  • 50 ml / 2 fl oz Baileys Irish Cream
  • 50 g / 2 oz Nutella (chocolate hazelnut spread)


Pre-heat your oven to 180 degrees C (160 fan) / Gas Mark 4 / 350 degrees F. Grease and line your brownie tin. My brownie tin is slightly larger than the 8 inch (20 cm) square tin the original recipe calls for, and it worked just fine.

Melt the butter in a large bowl. You can do this in a pan over a low heat or, like me, use the microwave. Heat the butter using short bursts (30 seconds at a time), stopping and stirring between bursts until all the butter has melted.

In a large bowl, beat together 250 g Nutella with the sugar, eggs, Baileys and vanilla extract. If you have one, use an electric hand whisk or a stand mixer to make this a lot easier. Mix the ingredients until smooth.

Add the melted butter, cocoa powder and flour, mixing between additions.

In a separate bowl, beat together the cheesecake swirl ingredients until combined.

Bake your Baileys Nutella cheesecake brownies for about 30 minutes. Remember that brownies, unlike cake, can still be a little gooey when you take them out of the oven. However, the contents of the tin shouldn’t wobble! I turned the oven off after 30 minutes, but left the brownies in for another 5 minutes.

Leave the brownies to cool completely in the tin. This can take a while!
