Cheesecake Brownies

When normal brownies are not indulgent enough.

I love this recipe.  I’ve made it a couple of times already as the family loves it.  It’s a Rachel Allen recipe.  I like homely comforting bakes, especially on a slow sunday afternoon.  It fills the house with a lovely aroma.

Give this recipe a go.  It’s a keeper 🙂

Recipe:

  • 100g butter
  • 100g dark chocolate
  • 125g caster sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 75g self raising flour
  • 1 tbs cocoa powder
  • 100g dark chocolate bits
  • pinch of salt

 

  • cheesecake mixture:
  • 200g cream cheese
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 75g caster sugar

Method:

  1. Pre-heat oven to 180degC
  2. Melt the butter with the dark chocolate in a bain marie, stir
  3. Meanwhile, make the cheesecake mixture by adding the 3 ingredients together in a bowl and stir until smooth and creamy.  Put aside.
  4. When the chocolate is melted add the caster sugar, salt and eggs.  Use a wooden spoon to stir.  Sift the flour and cocoa into the mixture then add the choc bits.  Mix to combine.
  5. Pour the brownie mix into a prepared 20cm square tin.  Make sure it covers the base of the tin.
  6. Add heaped spoons of the cheesecake mixture all over.  Using a butter knife, swirl to marble.
  7. Bake in the oven for 30 to 35 mins.  It’s ready when the sides are set but the middle still has a slight wobble.
  8. Sit at least 20 mins to cool before cutting into it.
