Cream Cheese Brownies

(from Baking Illustrated)


Brownie base:

100g plain flour

1/4 tsp salt

1/2 tsp baking powder

70g dark chocolate, broken into pieces

100g plain chocolate, broken into pieces

120g unsalted butter, cut into small cubes

1 cup sugar

2 tsp vanilla extract

3 large eggs

Cream cheese filling:

1 (8 oz) block cream cheese, at room temperature

1/4 cup sugar

1/2 tsp vanilla extract

1 egg yolk

1. Whisk flour, salt and baking powder together. Set aside.

2. Melt the chocolates and butter.

3. Whisk in sugar and vanilla extract.

4. Whisk in eggs, one at a time. Mix sure well combined before adding the next.

5. When the chocolate mixture is smooth and shiny, whisk in the flour mixture. Set aside.

6. Cream the cream cheese, sugar, egg yolk and vanilla extract until smooth.

7. Pour half of chocolate mixture and drop dollops of cream cheese mixture and pour remaining chocolate mixture and remaining cream cheese mixture into a aluminum lined and greased 8-inch square baking pan. Using a knife, draw big "S"s in the baking pan to swirl the cream cheese into the chocolate mixture.

8. Bake in preheated oven at 160 degC for 55 to 60 minutes or until a skewer inserted in the centre comes out clean.

Note: I have used a combination of metric measurement as well as American system of cups/tbsp depending on whichever is convenient.
