To make the brownie:
- Preheat oven to 350°F/180°C/Gas Mark 4.
- Combine together flour, cocoa, baking powder, and salt; set aside.
- In a bowl, using an electric mixer beat melted butter and sugar to combine. Apply eggs and whisk all over again until smooth. Pour Irish Cream whiskey and beat until well-incorporated.
- Gradually add dry ingredients while whisking and combine.
- Line a 9 by 9-in. baking pan with foil, pressing firmly into the pan. Spray the foil with non-stick oil.
