Cream Cheese Brownies

Every time when I have a craving for brownies, I immediately think about these cream cheese brownies.  I found this recipe inside a box of  the Baker’s semisweet chocolate quite awhile ago, and have been making these cream cheese brownies ever since.   These brownies are very moist and fudgy, and are exactly what I want. 


Ingredients

Chocolate batter


1 cup all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 box Baker's semi-sweet chocolate
6 tablespoons butter
4 eggs
1 1/2 sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla
 
Cream Cheese Batter

1 package (250g) cream cheese, softened
4 tablespoons butter (room temperature)
2 teaspoons vanilla
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 eggs (room temperature)

Directions

Preheat oven at 350 degrees F.  Grease a 9" X  13" baking pan.  

Chocolate Batter

  1. Sift flour, baking powder and salt together. 
  2. In a bowl, melt chocolate with butter over hot water or microwave chocolate and butter in a microwaveable bowl at high 2 minutes.  Stir until chocolate and butter are completely melted. 
  3. In a mixing bowl, beat eggs until foamy.  
  4. Gradually add sugar.  Continue beating until thick and lemon colored.
  5. Add vanilla and chocolate mixture, mix well.
  6. Add flour mixture, a little at a time.  Mix well
Cream Cheese Batter
  1. Beat cream cheese with butter, vanilla, sugar and eggs until smooth.
To finish brownies, layer half of chocolate batter in greased baking pan.  Spread with cheese mixture.  Top with spoonfuls of chocolate batter. Swirl with knife through layers to marble. Bake for 35 minutes.  Let cool.  Cut into squares.

  1. Hi Evelyn! Wow, this looks so good! I haven't had brownies for a long time...The cream cheese in the brownies sounds delicious. I guess you can taste the little creamy and tangibleness from the cream cheese? The marble pattern looks very pretty too!

    1. Thank you, Nami! The first time I ever tried the cream cheese brownies is when I was in Phoenix, Arizona. They were so delicious. So happy that I later found the recipe. Hope you will give it a try.
