chocolate cheesecake brownie

April 3, 2007 at 7:48 pm | Posted in Cheese, Chocolate, Slices | 16 Comments

i baked these at a little past midnight yesterday because i was so frustrated over my work. it was a good stress buster.


they are a breeze to whip up. the tang of the cheese complemented the brownie base well. the brownie bit wasn’t fudgy or chewy, and i think it lacked a “chocolate depth” presumably because it only called for cocoa powder. nonetheless, they are great for something so quick and easy to make! the boy and his CCA friends liked it, so i guess it’s good. or is it because (most) boys are not-that-fussy when it comes to food? πŸ˜‰


from donna hay’s modern classics 2:

185g butter, melted
1/4 cup cocoa powder, sifted
1 cup caster sugar
2 eggs
1 cup plain flour


285g cream cheese, softened and chopped
4 1/2 tbsp caster sugar
2 eggs

1. preheat oven to 160 degrees celsius. place the butter, cocoa, sugar, eggs and flour in a bowl and mix well until smooth. spoon into an 8-inch square slice tin lined with non-stick baking paper.

2. to make the cheesecake, process the cream cheese, sugar and eggs in a food processor until smooth. (i used handheld electric beaters) place large spoonfuls of the cheesecake mixture on top of te chocolate mixture and swirl with a butter knife. bake for 30-40 minutes or until set. cool in the tin. cut into slices. (i usually refrigerate the tin and cut when it’s cold, you’ll get cleaner slices that way)
