fudgy chocolate cream-cheese swirl brownies

we are going for a fun-filled frolic in the park tonight, so i thought it’d be a good idea to bring some food. i made a substantial and very chunky mushroom soup, to be swiped with bite-sized foccacia pieces (bought, not baked!) and for dessert, we’re going to have these.


adapted from crave: cheese desserts to die for

chocolate-cheese filling:

50g dark chocolate, finely chopped
2 tbsp whipping cream
115g cream cheese, softened
1 egg, lightly beaten
1 tsp plain flour

brownie batter:

130g plain flour
140g dark chocolate, chopped
95g butter
110 g caster sugar
110g brown sugar
1 1/2 tsp vanilla essence
3 eggs

1. line the bottom and sides of a 8 inch shallow square tin with aluminium foil, creating an overhang on the sides. grease the foil. preheat oven to 160 degrees celsius.

2. prepare chocolate-cheese filling. place chopped chocolate and whipping cream in a heatproof bowl and heat in microwave in zaps of 10 seconds until mixture is completely melted and smooth. leave to cool slightly.

3. add cream cheese to chocolate mixture. mix with a fork to break the cheese pieces. gradually add egg and flour, stirring until well incorporated.

4. prepare brownie batter. in a heatproof bowl, place chopped chocolate and butter and heat in microwave in zaps of 10 seconds until mixture is completely melted and smooth. place chocolate-butter mixture into a medium bowl together with caster sugar, brown sugar, vanilla essence and eggs. stir until well-combined. fold in flour mixture until just moistened.

5. pour half of brownie batter into prepared pan. spread chocolate-cheese filling over evenly and almost to the edge of the pan. cover with remaining brownie batter. bake for 35-45 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the centre comes out with moist crumbs attached. remove from oven and leave to cool in pan on a wire rack. (you can also refrigerate to ease the cutting)


these brownies have a really dark chocolatey taste, it’s not that sweet, making it perfect for nibbling without getting that sugary overdose.

  3. ehhh laaa i baru baca dlm the steps! ahahah dah jumpe the cheese!!! kekekeke 🙂

  4. coffeesnob: you should! but this are not crazy fudgy, it’s a bit on the lighter side, in my opinion.

    ashie: ahhhh sorry! terlupa letak the cheese. dah edit dah. 🙂

  5. Oh my God, I have been drooling over your baked goods every day seh! Is it okay to order now?

  6. su: heheh yes it is. 🙂

  7. hey.. i love your recipes, and i’m having tons of fun in the kitchen trying them out. just wanted to ask what kind of whipping cream you use.. i’m sorry if this a really duh question, i’m new to this baking thing. 😉 all i know is whipped cream that you eat with strawberries or put on top of drinks. but i don’t suppose it is the same thing, is it?

  8. hello diya, nice to hear that you’re baking! 😀 ok, look out for emborg brand whipping cream that comes in small packets in the dairy section of supermarkets. it’s 2 bucks plus. 🙂

  9. eh maya, i was just wondering…if i replace the dark choc with cocoa…it wouldn’t taste nice isit????

  10. ashie: nope i don’t think it’ll work well, maybe will turn out kering.

  11. hey.just wanted to ask if is there anything other places other then phoon huat that i can get my ingredients at that are cheap and good?((:

  12. char: hmm if it’s general ingredients i normally go to ntuc. phoon huat is the most convenient for me if i wanna get more “exclusive” baking stuff that’s not available at supermarkets.

  13. Does it work just as well with milk chocolate?
    I’m not really a dark-chocolate person 😛
    These look uber-scrummy, making them with my [reluctant for some reason] mum tommorow, can’t wait!

  14. These look delightful; I love the idea of adding the chocolate & cream to the cheesecake part.
