Gluten-free Irish Cream Brownies

One day, I had a couple of packages of gluten-free brownie mix that needed to be used. I also had a good amount of Bailey's Irish Cream Liqueur, and was feeling a bit adventurous. I found a recipe at All Recipes.com for something called Bailey's Irish Cream Brownies. I used my gluten-free mix, and the result was this little bit of gluten-free Irish brownie joy.

Frosting Ingredients:

  • 1 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 5 tablespoons Irish cream liqueur
  • 4 cups powdered sugar

Directions:
Heat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

Butter the bottom and edges of a 9x14-inch jelly roll pan.

Place fudge brownie mix into a large bowl; beat in 1 cup of Irish cream liqueur, vegetable oil, and eggs until the mixture forms a smooth batter.

Spread the batter into the prepared jelly roll pan.
Bake in the preheated oven until the brownies are set and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, about 20 minutes.

Remove pan from oven and allow to cool completely.

Add unsalted butter to a large bowl and beat until smooth.

Add 5 tablespoons Irish cream liqueur and beat until mixture is creamy.

Slowly beat in confectioners' sugar, 1 cup at a time, until frosting is desired stiffness.

Make sure brownies are cool, then spread frosting on brownies.

Original recipe makes one 10 1/2x15 1/2-inch pan.

I was under the impression that people with celiac disease should not drink Irish cream. Is there a new study that I am not aware of? The brownies do look very good, but I would think that I could not eat them.

Thanks for this! I knew there was a reason I used Carolans! I will change the recipe to include Carolans or other Irish Creams suitable for celiac diets.

It's been a few years, but the last time I called Bailey's to ask about their Irish cream they said they could not guarantee it is gluten-free. Might want to check on this before touting this recipe as gluten-free.

Since it's a distilled beverage, we can assume it is gluten-free and they are merely taking a conservative stance so as to avoid any liability. Distillation removes all gluten - the only way it would contain any would be if they were to add gluten-containing ingredients after distillation. This is the only reason we can't say for certain. The other ingredients are a proprietary blend of spices, and of course cream and sugar - it doesn't sound at all likely that these added ingredients would contain gluten. If you're skeptical, you can try substituting Carolan's. They make a gluten-free claim.
