Irish (Car Bomb) Brownies

St Paddys Day is tomorrow and I live in Ireland. Enough said.

But really, an Irish Car Bomb Drink is a layered shot of Baileys and Jameson dropped into half a pint glass of Guinness. I was recently informed by an English person that this shot should be dropped into some British Ale, but the drink has already been created and we'll move on from there. Irish Car Bomb Brownies have Guinness and Jameson in the Brownie part, and Baileys in the Cream Cheese Part.

Since I am in Ireland I don't feel it is necessary to put the clovers on like they do here, we kind of see enough of them this time of the year.

  • Brownie
    • 2 cups all purpose flour
    • 3/4 cup cocoa powder
    • 1 tsp baking soda
    •  1/2 tsp salt
    • 2 sticks unsalted butter, softened
    • 2 cups granulated sugar
    • 2 large eggs
    • 1 TBSP vanilla extract
    • 1/2 cup plus 2 TBSP Guinness Extra Stout (but who measures)
    • 4 TBSP Jameson Whiskey (but, again, who measures)
  • Cheesecake Layer
    • 1 egg
    • 1 TBSP vanilla extract
    • 12 oz cream cheese, softened
    • 1/2 cup plus 2 TBSP confectioners' sugar
    • 1/4 cup Bailey's (but, who measures) 
1) Line a 9×13 pan with foil.
2) Spray with baking spray
3) Preheat the oven to 325F/162C
4) Sift flour, coco powder, baking soda, and salt into a large bowl.
5) In another bowl, add butter and granulated sugar in a bowl and cream until smooth.
6) Add eggs and vanilla and beat until combined.
7) Add the flour mixture and combine.
8) Add the Guinness and Jameson and combine.
9) Pour batter into prepared dish.
10) Bake for 25 minutes, until a fork inserted comes out clean.
11) Let cool.
12) Add all the cheesecake ingredients into a bowl and mix.
13) Spread on top of the brownie layer and bake for 25 minutes, until set.
14) Let cool.
I didn't let them cool....
On another note: mmm, dinner
