Chocolate Fudge Cheesecake Brownies

February 18, 2015

As promised, here’s a very belated part two of the Christmas brownie bonanza.

Part 1 was an indestructible recipe for golden syrup brownies. Again, the recipe is from an out of print book which was a gift from my sister in law and has so far proved to be really very good indeed.

Chocolate Fudge Cheesecake Brownies
from Chocolate – decadent and delicious home-made treats

85g butter
200g low fat soft cheese
1/2 tsp vanilla essence
225g caster sugar
2 eggs
3 tbsp cocoa powder
100g self raising flour
50g pecan nuts, chopped (optional)

Fudge Icing (I decided these were decadent enough and didn’t make this)
4 tbsp butter
1 tbsp milk
75g icing sugar
2 tbsp cocoa powder
pecan nuts to decorate
20cm/8in square tin

Preheat oven to 180c/350f/Gas Mark 4

Beat together cheese, vanilla, 5 tsp of caster sugar until smooth. Set aside.

Best eggs & rest of caster sugar until light and fluffy.
Melt butter and cocoa powder gently until combined.
Stir in egg mixture.
Fold in flour and nuts

Pour half into cake tin and smooth over.
Spread (or dollop) cream cheese mix over and then cover with remaining batter.
Bake for 40-45 mins and leave to cool.

For icing:
Melt butter in the milk.
Stir in icing sugar and cocoa.
Spread over brownies and decorate with nuts. Leave to set before cutting into squares
