About this recipe: Been trying to think of ways to use up all the bottles of Baileys® I have been given as presents - so came up with these!

Makes: 24 cupcakes

  • 225g golden caster sugar
  • 225g margarine, at room temperature
  • 1 to 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 3 medium eggs, at room temperature
  • 225g self raising flour, sifted
  • 1/2 to 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 3 tablespoons Baileys® Irish cream (at room temperature)
  • 150 to 200g milk chocolate chips

Prep:20min  ›  Cook:40min  ›  Ready in:1hr 

  1. Preheat the oven to 180 C / 160 C fan / Gas 4. Line two 12-hole muffin tins with paper cases.
  2. Beat sugar and margarine together in a large bowl until really light and creamy. Beat in vanilla extract followed by the eggs, one at a time.
  3. Sift the flour and nutmeg together then add to the butter mixture. Gently mix in the Baileys® and the chocolate chips until smooth - be careful not to over mix! Divide mixture equally between paper cases, filling only to half way to ensure a good rise; tap tin gently on counter top to get rid of any air bubbles.
  4. Bake one tray at a time in the preheated oven on the middle shelf for 18 to 20 minutes until a skewer inserted into the centre of a cake comes out clean. Remove from the oven and leave to cool in tin for about 10 minutes. Cook the second tray. When cooled, remove gently and cool completely on a wire rack. Enjoy!
