Marbled Cheesecake Brownie

This recipe comes from the Australian magazine Recipes+ and the end result is delicious and moist! It is a definite crowd pleaser, for both adults and children, as it combines the favourites: a cheesecake and a brownie.

Ingredients
100g dark chocolate, broken into pieces
125g butter, chopped into cubes
1/4 cup cocoa
1 cup caster sugar, plus 1/3 cup extra
3 eggs, at room temperature
1 cup plain flour
250g cream cheese, at room temperature
1 tsp vanilla essence

Method
Preheat the oven to 140 degrees (fan-forced) and prepare a 30cm by 20cm slice pan. Combine chocolate, butter and cocoa in a saucepan over low heat and stir until chocolate melts and mixture is smooth. Remove from heat, and add 1 cup of sugar and 2 of the eggs. Stir until combined. Sift flour over chocolate mixture and stir; set aside. Using an electric mixer, beat cream cheese, 1 egg, extra sugar and vanilla in a medium bowl until smooth and creamy. Place large spoonfuls of chocolate mixture and cream cheese mixture into the prepared pan, alternating mixtures. Using a round bladed flat knife, swirl mixture to marble. Try to leave a small amount of the base unmarbled if you'd like a predominately brownie base. Bake for 35-40 minutes or until a skewer inserted at centre comes out clean. Remove from oven and cool the brownies in a pan.

  20. What a wonderful pairing. I am glad, I am far away from you. Otherwise, I would just move in and taste everything. I bet that tasting would put on the pounds. Sigh.

    Your photos are sheer genius. Each one stands out and shines.
