Chocolate Cheesecake Brownie

My brother & sister-in-law requested something chocolate to eat for dessert for our Mothers Day get together. I linked them a picture of a chocolate cheesecake during the week and since that method took too long, I just looked for a different recipe that was similar and so I decided on this.

  • Melted butter (to grease) (I microwaved a thin sliced piece for 30secs. in a little tub)
  • 150g butter
  • 300g good quality dark chocolate
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup caster sugar
  • 1.5 cups plain flour
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 1x 250g cream cheese (easier to whisk at room temperature)
  1. Preheat oven to 180°C. Brush a cake pan with the melted butter to lightly grease. Line the base with non-stick baking paper, allowing it to hang over the sides.
  2. Combine the butter and chocolate in a small saucepan over low heat. Cook, stirring until well combined mixture is smooth. Set aside for 5 minutes to cool down. Transfer chocolate mixture in a large bowl.
  3. Whisk 2 eggs in a small bowl. Add 2/3 cups caster sugar and whisked eggs in chocolate mixture, and stir to combine. Add flour and sour cream, stir and combine until well combined.
  4. Using an electric mixer, beat cream cheese and remaining (1/3 cup) sugar in a bowl until smooth. Add remaining egg and beat until just combined.
  5. Spoon the chocolate mixture in the pan, then adding the cream cheese on top. Use a skewer to create the marble/swirl effect and to mix it together.
  6. Bake for 30 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean. Set aside for 1 hour (I only did 30 minutes). * Best served with Ice cream.
