Baileys, Cream Cheese & Chocolate Muffins

I made some muffins for people in the office, and some asked me for the recipe, so I thought as an ice breaker for a new post in this year (yes I have been really really slack) here it is.


90g cream cheese
1.5 tblsp Baileys Irish Cream (yumm!)
1 egg
0.75 cup milk
0.33 cup water
50g butter, melted
100g chocolate, grated
1.5 cups flour
2 tsp baking powder
0.5 tsp salt
3 tablsp cocoa
0.5 cup sugar

How to make the goodies:

  1. Beat cream cheese until smooth, add Baileys and beat again
  2. In separate bowl whisk egg, milk, water and butter, then add chocolate
  3. Sift remaining dry ingredients into egg mixture and stir until just combined
  4. One-third fill well-greased muffin pans with muffin mixture, make a hollow in the centre, and fill with 1 teaspoon cream cheese mixture
  5. Top up to three-quarters full with remaining muffin mixture
  6. Bake at 190 degrees C for 20 minutes

If you have loads of self-raising flour, you can use that instead. 1.5 cup of self-raising flour will take care of the salt and baking powder. Enjoy!

I would like to know how you go, so please leave a comment after you try it out thanks! 🙂
