If you’re like me, every now and then something sweet and something that has chocolate in it. My husband really likes cheesecake so this desert really catered to both of us. It was the perfect balance of sweetness and richness. Hopefully you like them as much as we did!
For the brownie
1 1/2 cups Sugar
3/4 cup Flour
1/2 cup Cocoa Powder
1/2 tsp Baking Powder
1/4 tsp Salt
1 1/2 tsp Vanilla Extract
3/4 cup Vegetable Oil
For the cheesecake
8 ounces Cream Cheese, softened
1/3 cup Sugar
1/2 tsp Vanilla Extract
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Grease an 8×8 baking dish. I found that butter worked best.
In a large bowl, combine dry ingredients until mixed.
Add wet ingredients and mixed until completely combined.
Pour the batter into the greased baking dish. If desired, reserve approximately 2 tbsp of brownie batter to marble cheesecake.
In a separate bowl, beat the cream cheese and sugar until combined and smooth.
Add the vanilla extract and egg. Continue to beat until well incorporated.
Evenly spread the cream cheese mixture over the brownie batter.
If desired, thinly swirl remaining brownie batter over cheesecake batter. Use tooth pick to create desired design.
Bake for approximately 35 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
