Chocolate Cheesecake Brownies

Finally, it happened!!!I successfully baked a brownie without any fuss...*phew*...After two major failures (a hardened brownie and a charred brownie), I never had the courage to bake a brownie. But then, I badly wanted to bake one!! I found this brownie recipe in one of my baking bookings and set out to bake it with my fingers crossed.....And the finished product is what you see in the below pictures....*smiles*



Ingredients:
Recipe Source: Chocolate by Parragon Books

Brownie Mix
Unsalted butter - 3/4 cup (plus extra for greasing)
Unsweetened cocoa - 3 tbsps
Superfine sugar - 1 cup
Eggs, beaten - 2
All-purpose flour - 1 cup

Cheesecake Mix
Ricotta cheese - 1 cup*
Superfine sugar - 3 tbsps
Egg, beaten - 1

Method:
  • Preheat oven to 180 C/350 F. Grease a cake pan and line with parchment paper.
  • Melt the butter and stir in the unsweetened cocoa and the sugar.
  • Beat in the eggs, then add the flour, and stir to mix evenly. Pour into the prepared pan.
  • For the cheesecake mix, beat together the cheese, sugar and the egg. Pour this mixture over the chocolate mixture.
  • Bake for 40-45 minutes, until just firm to touch. {In a MWO, bake at 600W for 10mins}
  • Cool in the pan and then cut into bars or squares.
* I used Britannia's cream cheese instead of ricotta cheese.
