If you’re like me, you can be indecisive when it comes to what you like when you fancy a sweet treat. Thats why I’m showing you how to make my take on brownie cheesecake slices.
They are perfect as they are the ideal balance between the two different layers, brownies and baked cheesecake. They are incredibly rich, the best indulgent treat – whenever you need one.
These are perfect for sharing, whether thats friends and/ore family or whoever you want to share them with. I make a small tray, which still yields 9 very generous portions, I would recommend slices them smaller but who am I to tell you how enjoy. Slice as big or small as you’d like.
Anyway, let’s get started, shall we?
140g melted butter.
225g granulated sugar.
1 tsp vanilla extract.
45g cocoa powder.
100g plain flour.
50g dark chocolate chips.
50g milk chocolate chips.
250g soft cheese, at room temp.
80g granulated sugar.
40-50g plain flour.
90g sour cream.
2 tsp vanilla extract.
Before you get started on the recipe, you’ll want to do some prep. I like to start by weighing up all of the ingredients, line your 9×9 inch square cake tin with parchment paper, preheat your oven to 180˚c/350˚f and get any equipment you may need ready, such as mixing bowl, hand whisk and spatula.
To start, I like to work on the brownie base. Take a microwavable bowl and place in the butter, allowing to melt until no solids remain. Once you have achieved that, you can add in the cocoa powder and whisk until fully incorporated.
Now add in your siuagr and whisk until, its fully combined. You will notice that the consistency of the batter changes and becomes much more granular, this is normal.
Then you can add in your eggs, one at a time, followed by the vanilla. Whisking well in-between each addition. The consistency will change and become much more liquid.
Now you can add in your dry ingredients and chocolate chips, folding together until theres not a trace of a single ingredient.
Give your bowl a good scraping down, just to incorporate any bits that may not have been fully incorporated.
Transfer the brownie batter into the lined baking tin, spreading and levelling as best as you possibly can.
You can set this aside until needed, later on.
Now you can make the cheesecake layer – this is very easy and takes next to no time at all.
Simply take a large mixing bowl and place in all of the ingredients needed for the cheesecake and whisk together, just until everything is well incorporated. You shouldn’t be able to see a trace of a single ingredient.
Once you have achieved that, you can pour the cheesecake mixture on top of the brownie batter, spreading and levelling it out as best as you can. Cover the tin with foil and bake for 35-40 minutes.
You’ll know when its done, as it’ll be a little more coloured around the edges with next to no jiggle. Allow to cool fully before you attempt to slice them – to make the cutting process easier, place the brownies into the fridge and chill for some time beforehand.
Slice up into 9 portions (you can go with more or less, its all on you). The amount you choose is up to you, so choose as you wish.
