Ingredients:

Cheesecake Mixture:

  • 1 packet Cream Cheese (room temperature)
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 1 Egg
  • 1 cup White Chocolate Chips

Chocolate Brownie Mixture: 

  • 1/4 cup Butter
  • 1 cup Cooking Chocolate or Chocolate Chips
  • 1/2 cup white Sugar
  • 2 Eggs
  • 2/3 Plain Flour
  • 1/2 tsp Baking Powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt

 

Instructions 

  1. Preheat Oven 170c Fan Forced
  2. Line a baking pan with baking paper- I used a 12 x 7 inch. 9 x 9 inch will also work
  3. In a standard mixing bowl with the paddle attachment, combine cream cheese, 1/4 cup sugar and 1 egg.
  4. Beat until smooth and creamy
  5. Add 1 cup of white chocolate chips and set aside.
  6. Set up a Bain Marie on your stove top. Do this by filling a saucepan with water and setting a heatproof mixing bowl over the water- making sure the water doesn’t come into contact with the bowl. The water should be simmering.
  7. In the heatproof bowl combine the butter and the chocolate until well combined
  8. Turn off the gas/ heat to the bain marie
  9. Add 1/2 cup sugar and 2 eggs, stir to combine
  10. In a separate bowl combine flour, baking powder and salt.
  11. Add this to the chocolate mixture. Stir to combine.
  12. Pour half of the chocolate mixture into the prepared baking pan.
  13. Pour all of the cheesecake mixture on top of the chocolate mixture and spread to the edges
  14. Pour the remaining chocolate mixture onto the pan and spread. Swirl the mixture to give it a marble affect.
  15. Bake Cheesecake Brownies for 25 to 30 minutes. They’re cooked when the top is crinkled
