  1. Step 1:

    Preheat the oven to 180C (fan 160C, gas mark 4). In a bowl cream together the sugars, butter and vanilla extract either with a wooden spoon or an electric whisk until light and fluffy.

  2. Step 2:

    Gradually beat in the eggs, and fold in the flour, baking powder, cream and Baileys.

  3. Step 3:

    Fold the chocolate chips through and divide evenly between 12 mini loaf cases (available from major supermarkets). To make it easier to fill the mini loaf cases use a piping bag for the filling.

  4. Step 4:

    Bake in the oven on a baking tray at least 1cm apart for 25 - 30 minutes until risen and golden and springy to the touch and cool on a wire rack.

  5. Step 5:

    For the icing, mix the icing sugar with the Baileys and drizzle over the cooled cakes with a spoon and dust with a little cocoa powder.
