Baking | Cheesecake Brownies [Epic Nom.]

12 Nov 2012

Well hello there!

On Friday I made one of my very favourite treats! Cheesecake Brownies; two of my favourite desserts combined! The ultimate indulgence :)

Heres how I made it, :);

First off, set the oven to Gas Mark 3 and cream the butter (250g, not the 251g that I seemed to have used ;)!) and sugar (420g) together.

Then add two eggs one at a time.

Then sift together the plain flour (380g), cocoa powder (60g), bicarbonate of soda (1tsp) and salt (1/2 tsp).

As appetising as it sounds, I always think it looks like gravelly dirt when its mixed together! Yum! Anyway, once it is combined, mix it with the batter in two batches.

Until it looks like this, and you struggle not to just slam your face in the bowl and eat it there and then!

Wrap about a quarter of the dough in clingfilm and put it in the fridge, then press the remaining dough into a lined tray and put into the fridge for 20-30 minutes. You should use baking paper to line the tray, but because I'm very organised and always think ahead un-organised, I didn't check if I had any! So I had to use foil instead, it does work okay, but you need to grease it well to make sure the brownie doesn't stick, and it does speed up the cooking process slightly.

Now we've got to the best part! Licking the bowl and spoon! :D This always brings back memories of baking with my mum as a kid! It was my favourite part :)

After you've eaten as much brownie dough as you can manage, take the chilled tray out of the fridge and pop it in the oven for 20-25 minutes and then leave to cool.

Now onto the cheesecake topping! :) Firstly, you need to melt White chocolate (80g) and then leave to cool slightly.

Then mix together cream cheese (300g) and  icing sugar (60g) until smooth, then add one egg, and finally the melted chocolate. Spread this mixture on top of the brownie base.

Then crumble the leftover dough from the fridge over the top and put this back in the oven for around 25 minutes or until the cheesecake is set.

And voila! Leave the cheesecake brownie to cool and then set in the fridge and you are done and dusted to enjoy the yummiest treat ever! :)

The recipe was taken from the brilliant Hummingbird Bakery cookbook which you can peruse here. :)

I hope you enjoyed the baking adventure, and if any of you try out the recipe be sure to send me a picture! :)

Bye for now!
