Cheesecake brownie

4Cheesecake… pretty good. Brownies… pretty good. Together… heaven!

With all my friends from uni home for Easter, I have no one left to force feed my cakes other than my family, who I can already see are getting tired of the constant sugar overload. But even they couldn’t put up a fuss when I came home with this next creation. Walking through the door with the still warm and gooey brownies, I could hear my brother shouting from the kitchen “Oh my goddd mum, I’m not eating anymore of Jessica’s stupid cakes” (What are brothers for?!). Ten minutes later there were 3 clearly missing brownies in the pan – not that he would admit to enjoying them!

I came across this recipe from Laurie’s blog and adapted it slightly, although I don’t think I quite did it justice! It really is the most amazing treat – it has a warm and gooey brownie base, a delicious smooth and creamy cheesecake, and topped off with chocolate chips which melt in the oven to give the perfect gooey result.

Just wow

I also just bought a new attachment for my KitchenAid mixer, so this gave me the perfect opportunity to test it out (…not that I need an excuse to bake!)

The recipe and method for this is actually a lot more simple than it looks. First I prepared the mixture for the brownie base, and poured it into the brownie tin. I then prepared the cheesecake mixture and poured this on top of the brownie batter. To finish it off I used a mixture of white and milk chocolate chips all over the top.

Like before with my Red Velvet Cheesecake, I like a really soft cheesecake, so use half ‘light’ cream cheese and half regular. If you prefer a more firm cheesecake, just replace the light version with the regular version.

Look how clean the sides of the mixing bowl are! Definitely worth investing in that attachment

I put it in the oven for 45-50 minutes, and then let it cool for an hour while I went to a yoga class (something I’ve just started, and beginning to feel its not quite my forte!)

Warm chocolately cheesecakey goodness!

I then cut it into slices and took it straight to my family – anything to get it away from me as soon as possible! Living alone, with a soft spot for cake, and a baking hobby, can be pretty dangerous!

  1. I tried to make red velvet cheesecake brownies but they were a disaster! This recipe looks much easier to follow so think I need to give this a go! Do you get your recipes from books or do you create them yourself? x

    • Haha I saw a post on Pinterest of some AMAZING looking red velvet cheesecake brownies. Maybe I’ll give them a miss now haha. Definitely try these out, it was really simple! A bit of both, sometimes I’ll get the base recipe from a book but then experiment a bit with different things / quantities until I get it just right. Experimented with a ton of cheesecake cream cheese ratios until I found one that I like!
      Ah thanks for letting me know 😦 I changed my blog address and ever since then everything is messed up – I’m pretty sure some of my posts arent coming up on the reader for some people either! 😦 x

      • Ahh amazing, I hopefully will try them again one day. Imagine getting therm right they would be a DREAM! Will deff by trying yours though 🙂 that’s cool. I’m still mostly following recipes but adding my own bits.
        Ah how annoying! This blogging business can be very tricky…xx
