Baileys pecan blondies

Take your blondies up a notch and top with a white chocolate Baileys ganache to give them a boozy, festive boost.

Total Time: 2 hours 15 minutes + cooling
Yield: makes 16



  • white chocolate 250g, roughly chopped
  • sea salt flakes a pinch
  • double cream 100ml
  • Baileys 50ml
  • pecans 150g, roughly chopped
  • edible gold luster powder ½ tsp


  • eggs 3 large
  • soft light brown sugar 400g
  • unsalted butter 250g, melted and cooled, plus extra for the tin
  • plain flour 300g
  • vanilla extract 1 tbsp
  • baking powder 1 tsp
  • sea salt flakes ½ tsp
  • dark chocolate (65-70% cocoa solids) 100g, roughly chopped
  • pecans 100g, roughly chopped


Step 1

Heat the oven to 120C/fan 100C/gas 1⁄2. Put the white chocolate onto a rimmed non-stick baking tray and bake for 1 -11/2 hours or until a rich caramel color. While baking, the chocolate needs to be stirred every 10-15 minutes to prevent it from catching on the baking tray and burning. Make sure you give the chocolate a really good stir and scrape it off the bottom of the tray each time. The chocolate will go a little grainy during baking but will become smooth and creamy when stirred. Sprinkle with sea salt and pour onto a new baking-paper-lined tray to set.

Step 2

Heat the oven to 180C/fan 160C/gas 4. For the blondies, butter and line a deep 20cm square cake tin. Put the eggs and sugar into a large bowl, and whisk together using electric beaters for 3 minutes or until thick and fluffy. Mix in the melted butter. Add the remaining ingredients and stir together until just combined. Scrape the blondie batter into the prepared tin and spread into an even layer. Bake for 35-40 minutes or until the top is starting to brown slightly and has just set. Remove from the oven and cool.

Step 3

To make the ganache, roughly chop the caramelized white chocolate and put into a bowl. Put the cream and Baileys into a small pan, and bring to a simmer. Pour the cream mixture over the chocolate and put aside for 1 minute before stirring together to form a smooth ganache. If it’s not fully dissolved give it a whizz with a hand blender. Pour this over the blondie and spread into an even layer. Before the ganache sets, put the pecans and edible gold powder into a small bowl and toss to evenly coat the pecans. Scatter the gold pecans over the ganache in an even layer. Chill until the ganache is set and the blondie has fully cooled, then cut into squares. These blondies will keep for 3-4 days in a sealed container.
