Today I made brownie cheesecake. I am making it for my cousin’s 10th birthday. This was really fun to make and it was my first time making cheesecake. As you will see in the recipe, it takes time for it to cool and solidify so make sure you don’t over cook it. I really like these! They are so tasty. Thank you Phoebe, for the recipe! Feel free to give me a recipe and if you have given me one, I will make it. I just need some time to do all the delicious looking things!
Makes 15-20 squares
1 generous cup or 250g of butter + extra for greasing
250g roughly chopped chocolate
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
1 cup plain flour, sifted
pinch of salt
For the cheesecake mix
generous 1/2 cup or 125g ricotta cheese
1/4 cup or 50g cream cheese
2 tablespoons caster sugar
splash of vanilla extract
5 teaspoons of thick double cream
1 tablespoon flour
Preheat oven to 180 degrees C / 350 degrees F / Gas Mark 4
Grease a 8 x 11 inch baking tin and line it with parchment paper
First mix all the ingredients for the cheesecake together in this order
1. the cheeses
3. vanilla extract
Make sure there are no lumps then set aside.
Melt the butter and chocolate together (either in a microwave or in a bowl placed over a saucepan of simmering water. When melted, allow to cool slightly.
In another bowl, beat the eggs with the sugar and add vanilla extract. You can do this with an electric mixer or by hand. Beat for a few minutes until the mixture is well combined and just beginning to froth.
Pour in the melted chocolate and butter and finally flour and salt.
Pour the mixture into the baking tin and swirl in the cheesecake mix. Make any design you like but be careful not to mix it too much or you won’t get the marbled effect.
Bake for about 25 mins. Be careful not to overbake as brownies should be a bit squishy in the middle. The cake will continue to cook once out of the oven so don’t worry if it seems undercooked.
Allow to cool and cut into slices when cold.
