Cheesecake Brownie

Made this yesterday for my colleague, Peter who had last day in the office today. I know he loves cakes and desserts so tried out the recipe from Gert (My Kitchen Snippets). Somehow, it did not really turn out as expected - the brownie part is a bit dry (could be overbaked...?). Overall taste is good and Peter was not complaining at all....hehehe. My two boys were complimenting anyway as they love chocolate & cheese...

Herewith the recipe:

(Makes 8" square)
1/2 cup Butter
4 oz Unsweetened Chocolate
1 cup Sugar
2 eggs
1 cup Flour
1 tsp Vanilla Essence
1/2 tsp Baking Powder
1/4 tsp Salt

INGREDIENTS (Cheesecake):
8 oz Low Fat Cream Cheese (I used full fat cream cheese)
1 egg
1/3 cup of sugar

1. Heat oven to 350°F. Grease bottom only of 8 x 8 inch square baking pan. Set aside.

2. Melt butter and chocolate in a saucepan over low heat, stirring occasionally, until smooth (4 to 7 minutes). Remove from heat.
Stir in sugar and vanilla.
Add eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each addition.
Add flour, baking powder and salt; mix just until all ingredients are moistened and brownie mixture is smooth.
Spread brownie mixture into prepared baking pan.

3. For the topping beat the cheese, egg and sugar until smooth. Dollop the cream cheese mixture on top of the brownie batter. Swirl together using a knife or skewer.

4. Bake for 25 to 33 minutes or until brownies just begin to pull away from sides of pan. Cool completely and then cut into bars and serve.

Next Day Comment: There were few small slices left from yesterday & surprisingly the brownie turned moist this morning...walaaa...
