Cheesecake Marbled Brownies

Its been almost 3 months since I last opened my blog. I lost two of my dearest dogs and it has been very difficult and saddening, the amount of love and warmth I get from my animals is unimaginable they are more than my children to me, it might sound weird to a lot of people but an animal lover would know what their loss means. After a lot of lectures from my daughters especially my elder one I am here again and I hope to work hard on my blog which has been thoroughly neglected by me. Barbie’s spleen ruptured and brownie died of a heart attack she had just got over with her surgery(she had a tumour in her uterus) and her little body could not take so much trauma.Now only custard is here and I am soo…. afraid that I might one day loose him but I don’t want to think like that and I just hope that he has an amazing life.

After so many days I have entered the kitchen and the first craving was brownies, I love all kinds of brownies basically anything chocolate and my head starts to bob in a yes( shameful I know). Its a smitten kitchen recipe and Deb definitely knows good food. I have been thinking of making these for almost a year now and God!! these are seriously delicious it is a wonderful recipe really simple fuss free and I chilled my brownies for half an hour and they cut fantastically. As of now these are my families favourite brownies.

INGREDIENTS

Brownie Batter

1/2 cup unsalted butter, cut into pieces

3 ounces unsweetened chocolate, chopped

1 cup sugar

2 large eggs

1 tsp pure vanilla extract

2/3 cup-all purpose flour

Cheesecake Batter

8 ounces cream cheese, well softened

1/3 cup sugar

1 large egg yolk

1/4 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

Plus 

1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips

To make the brownie batter : Preheat the oven to a 180 degree centigrade. Butter an 8-inch square baking pan generously. Now  heat the butter and chocolate in a heavy based saucepan over low heat whisking , just until melted. Remove from the heat and whisk in the eggs, sugar, vanilla and just a pinch of salt until well combined now whisk in the flour (don’t over mix just until it combines) and spread in the baking pan.

For the cheesecake batter: whisk together all the ingredients for the cheesecake batter in a small bowl until nice and smooth, dollop it all over the brownie batter, then swirl with a butter knife. Sprinkle chocolate chips over the cheesecake/ brownie batter.

Bake for 30-35 minutes until the edges are slightly puffed and the centre is just set. Serve warm or at room temperature or even chilled they just taste yummy any how.

Enjoy….
