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.

  • 4 cups powdered sugar

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

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.

Wish I could give you a hug. Unfortunately I know how that feels with Neurologists, Internists, Endocrinologists, Rheumatologists, GIs..... I got so tired of crying my drive home after refusing yet another script for Prozac. I do hope your GI can give you some answers even if it is just to rule out other possible issues. Keep on the gluten and we are here for you.

It is too bad that so often a full panel isn't done. Glad your appointment got moved up and hopefully you will get a clearer answer from the GI. Do keep eating gluten until the celiac testing is done. Once the testing is done do give the diet a good strict try. Hang in there.

That makes sense...I cried with relief when I got my diagnosis just because there was finally an answer. Please know that you are not weak or crazy. Keep pushing for testing. It could still be celiac, it could be Crohns. Push your Dr's to figure this out. Best wishes.

Thank you all very much. I actually cried when I got the answer. I wanted an explanation that I could "fix." Now I'm back to thinking I'm just weak and possibly crazy. I know I'm not crazy, but you know.

From what I have read online there is about a 1-3% chance of getting a false positive for celiac disease from a blood test. Was it a blood test that you got done? It may be worth your while to get a biopsy or more testing just to confirm it. I know being gluten free is a pain but it is better than getting cancer or other auto immune disorders.
