Cheese Brownie

There were some leftover ingredients from our baking event the other day so I thought it will be nice to bake something for the ladies who worked hard in my house. So I tried this recipe from Yochana yesterday. It tastes good but the cheese layer is a bit too sweet for me & will reduce the sugar amount next time. I like the brownie layer which is very rich, dark & moist. My kids love it and ask me to make this again.

(Make 1 loaf size)
180g Butter - melted
275g Brown Sugar
3 Eggs
1 tsp Vanilla Essence
120 g Self-raising Flour
70 g Cocoa Powder

250 g Cream Cheese
45 g Butter
80 g Icing Sugar
1 egg
Some chocolate chips to sprinkle on top

1. Mix melted butter with brown sugar until well combined.
Add in eggs, one at at ime, mixing well after each addition.
Stir in vanilla essence.
Gently fold in flour and cocoa powder and stir till smooth.

2. For cheese layer:
Beat cream cheese, butter and icing sugar until well combined.
Add in egg, beating well.

3. Pour half of brownie batter into loaf pan, then pour in cheese mixture.
Then pour the balance brownie batter on top of cheese layer.
Sprinkle top with chocolate chips.

4. Bake in preheated oven 170C for 1 hour or until cooked.

  3. Hi

    You have a beautiful and wonderful site. I've actually added you in my Favourite. Thanks for sharing the recipe. I am so tempted to try this brownie soon.

    I am a fan of your blogspot. I have tried many recipes and have been successful. Glad that I can always look for your recipes. I tried the cheese brownie recipe 2 days ago. After baking the brownie, it looked raised and nice but after a while it sank in the middle. Why is it so? I did not have enough cocoa powder so I mixed coffee powder to make it to 70g. Is that the reason? But the taste was simply great and yummy. I want to try again... pls advise. Thanks a lot!


  6. Bivi,
    Wsalam. Thank-you for your message. Glad that I could be of help. Cocoa & coffee has different density and probably the reason but there are other possible reasons as well for cakes to sink in the middle. Examples are the batter over-mixed or too high temperature or over-baked. Tips: always place cake in the middle of the oven. The taste & texture improves after a day.
