Recipe – Chocolate Cherry Cheesecake Brownies

This title is a bit of a mouthful but the marbled combination of the cheesecake and the brownies make for one delicious dessert! These brownies are very rich but get even tastier and dense after two days in an airtight container…the perfect bit of baking to do on a rainy half-term afternoon.

Ingredients

150g of butter or margarine, at room temperature

200g of dark chocolate, roughly broken into squares

275g of caster sugar

5 eggs

75g of plain flour

300g of cream cheese

200g of thawed black cherries (raspberries or blueberries would work too)

How to make it

  • Begin by preheating the oven to 180°C, Gas Mark 4 and line your baking tin with greaseproof paper

  • Add the butter and chocolate to a bowl set over a saucepan of gently simmering water and stir until melted before allowing the mixture to cool

  • Once cooled, mix in 225g of the the caster sugar, then the three eggs (one at a time) then the flour
  • In a separate bowl, whisk the soft cheese with the remaining 50g of caster sugar and the last two eggs until smooth and creamy

  • Now it’s time to start creating that marbled effect between the two mixtures. Spoon alternate drops of the brownie and cheesecake mixtures into the baking tin

  • You can use the end of a spoon to add more swirls
  • Drop in the cherries evenly across the surface of the cake

About hannahhotcakes

My name is Hannah. I live near Bath in a lovely village in the Cotswolds with my husband Ian, the love of my life for the past 10 years, in our dream cottage. I have landed my dream job as a primary school teacher and I can’t think of anything else I would rather be doing. I am a self-confessed foodie and I love to cook, bake, and eat out as much as possible. Here are some things I love: My friends and family, travelling, fresh flowers, good books, having breakfast on my balcony, horror films, Christmas, tea, Las Vegas, lie-ins, red wine, Liverpool FC, music, sausage dogs, Spain, rare steak, fashion, cheese, American TV series and camping. And here are my pet hates: People dressed as animals, whistling, being rushed, being made to wait, girls who act stupid to impress a man, spiders, sunburn and rocket (it comes with EVERYTHING!)
