HOW TO MAKE IT:

First, make sure to preheat the oven to 175°C / 350°F.

Use butter or nonstick cooking spray to grease an 8-inch baking tray.

For the cheesecake mix:

Microwave the cream cheese for 20-30 seconds until soft. Beat the cream cheese with sugar, egg yolk, vanilla, flour and (of course) Baileys in an electric mixer until smooth.

For the brownie mix:

Melt the butter in the microwave, add the chopped chocolate to the hot butter and stir until everything melts together. If chocolate is not melting, microwave until smooth.

Beat the eggs, granulated sugar, brown sugar, vanilla, Baileys and salt in electric mixer at medium speed until smooth. Add the chocolate/butter mixture and beat until taken in. Add the flour and cocoa powder and mix on low until combined, taking care not to overmix.

Place 1/2 cup of the brownie batter to a small microwave-safe bowl and spread the remaining brownie batter in the greased pan. Spread the cheesecake batter evenly over the brownie mix. Microwave the other 1/2 cup of brownie batter until warm and pourable, (approx 15-20 seconds).

Use a spoon to dollop the warm batter over the cheesecake layer.

The chef recommends 'about 8 dollops, and for the prettiest marble effect, leave as much space as possible between the dollops.'

Swirl the brownie batter through the cheesecake batter with a knife to make a marbled pattern, making sure not to overdo the marbling or the batters will get muddled.

Bake brownie and cheesecake mix at 350/175 until the mixture has risen, is set in the center and is browning at the edges. (40-45 minutes.)

Let cool for at least 30 minutes to allow brownies to become firm. Cut up and enjoy!

The chef recommends serving warm with a scoop of vanilla icecream, but we reckon it would also go perfectly with a special mug of Baileys coffee.
