Soft fudgey brownies topped with a thick layer of chocolate marbled cheesecake.
Don’t you just love it when you can combine two of your favourite desserts and make it one. A thick layer of soft fudgey brownies topped with a chocolate swirled rich creamy cheesecake. I mean what’s not to love. This marbled cheesecake brownie is easy to put together. And it can be made up to a week ahead and stored covered up in the fridge until you are ready to serve.
First off is a from scratch brownie layer. It is a one bowl mix or should I saw one pot mix recipe. My brownie recipe has in it good quality semi- sweet or dark chocolate with at least 70% cocoa solids, unsalted butter, caster sugar, eggs, cocoa powder, flour and a salt. Melt the chocolate with butter and leave to cool for ten minutes. Then into that add sugar and then whisk in eggs. Followed by folding in cocoa powder and flour. Pour into a square baking tin lined with foil and set aside whilst you prepare the cheesecake layer.
The cheesecake layer is pretty simple to put together. It is a combination of cream cheese, sugar, an egg and yogurt. Spread the cheesecake batter over the brownie batter using an offset spatula.
Creating the marbled part of the cheesecake was the most fun part of putting together this dessert. To finish off melt some chocolate in a microwave in 30 second bursts until melted. Pour into a squeezy bottle or a piping bag then pipe parallel lines of melted chocolate across the cream cheese layer. Take a tooth pick and drag through the melted chocolate for that pretty marbled effect.
And your dessert is all ready to be baked. What you will get when it is ready is a truly decadent dessert. It is moist rich and best of all delicious.
