This recipe takes a classic treat, the brownie, and adds the sweet side of Irish whiskey into the mix. What kind of Irish whiskey used actually has an impact on the flavor for a recipe like this. I’ve found going with Bushmills gives the brownies a more of a butterscotch tweak, while relying on Powers or Jameson gives it a dash of malty-honeyed sweet.
2 eggs1 cup of table sugar
1/2 cup of butter
1/2 cup of flour
1/3 cup of cocoa powder
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 shot (1.5 oz) of Irish whiskey
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
Pre-heat the oven to 350 F (170 C) and grease a baking pan with vegetable oil or Crisco.
Place your butter in a saucepan, and put the saucepan on the stove at low heat to melt the butter. Once the butter is melted, remove the saucepan. Stir and then beat in all the remaining ingredients until a consistent batter is formed.
Scoop the batter out into the baking pan, filling it evenly. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes. Remove from the oven, allow to cool, cut into squares or rectangular pieces, and serve.
