Chocolate Cheesecake Brownie Slice

 I can't remember where I found this recipe, but I'm sure it's from a magazine. It's another favourite in our house - there seems to be lots of favourites in the ever-growing "sweet" category of my recipe box :) This is much better the next day (or the day after that!) after it's been in the fridge - in fact I'm not too keen on it on the first day.

Chocolate Cheesecake Brownie Slice

Cheesecake mixture:
250g cream cheese (let it come to room temperature)
1/2 cup (115g) caster sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 cup plain flour

Chocolate Brownie mixture:
180g dark chocolate, chopped
160g butter, cubed
3/4 cup (155g) brown sugar
3 eggs, whisked
3/4 cup (115g) plain flour

Preheat oven to 170 o C. Line 16x26cm slice tin with baking paper.
For cheesecake mix:
  • Beat cream cheese and sugar with electric beaters until smooth then beat in eggs one at a time.
  • Add vanilla and flour and stir until combined
For brownie mix:
  • Melt chocolate and butter over a double boiler on a gentle heat. (Or gently melt using a microwave). Cool slightly.
  • Add sugar and eggs and mix well.
Spoon cheesecake and brownie mixes alternately into the prepared tin. Swirl mixes with a skewer - don't overdo this step or it will end up all mixed together.
Bake for 30-35 minutes. Set aside to cool completely before cutting into about 20 squares (or 10 slices if you are using for dessert).
Best eaten the next day after it's been in the fridge overnight. I don't know if it freezes well as it's never lasted long enough in our house to have to freeze it! It's really delicious served for dessert with some icecream and raspberry coulis. I've been thinking of even adding some raspberries to the mix before baking - next time!
