Now this is a cake to bake for the whole family. Or something you can eat for 8 days straights. I would have to learn to divide the ingredients and just make a portion for 2, but I was trying to get rid of my cream cheese. I was baking a sultana cake (total fail), and broke 2 eggs and had half of 250g butter left. Since it was soft butter, I just had to do something.
This recipe is taken from joyofbaking.com but I did roughly adjust the ingredients.
Make 16 mini servings
160C preheated oven, 9inch square tin lined with foil
150g dark chocolate (I use 100g 80% cocoa, 50g 65% cocoa)
1 cup (200g) white sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup flour
A pinch of salt
For the cheesecake:
227g cream cheese (I use Cowhead)
1/3 cup white sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla
Melt butter and chocolate, I use a double boiler.
Once cool, whisk in the sugar and the vanilla extract.
Mix in the eggs, one by one.
Add in the flour and salt, then mix until no more white can be seen.
Pour almost all into baking tin, leaving a palm size gallop for the marbling.
To make the cream cheese, beat the cream cheese until smooth.
Mix in the sugar.
Add in the egg and vanilla.
Pour the mixture slowly on top the brownie mixture.
Drop the remainder brownie mix in 4 by 4. I just randomly drop them.
Use a toothpick/skewer or butter knife and swirl the mixture together to get a nice marble effect. (I pretty much rubbish at swirling)
Baked for about 30 minutes.
Let cool and chill in fridge for a few hours cause cheesecake is best served cold.
