Keyword: cream cheese swirl brownie
Servings: 20 brownies
- CHOCOLATE BROWNIES:
- 113 g (1/2 cup, about 8 Tbsp) butter, melted
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 tsp apple cider vinegar
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/4 cup cocoa powder
- a pinch of salt
- 2 eggs
- 3/4 cup all purpose flour
- CHEESECAKE TOPPING:
- 125 g cream cheese, room temperature
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 1 egg
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
Preheat the oven to 180 C (350 F). Butter and line a 20 x 20 cm (8 x 8 inch) pan.
BROWNIE LAYER: In a large bowl, combine melted butter with sugar, vinegar, vanilla extract and salt. Whisk in the eggs. Gently fold in the flour and cocoa. Pour the mixture into the prepared pan, reserving 1/4 of a cup of this batter for the swirling effect.
In a small bowl, mix cream cheese, sugar, egg and vanilla. Spread this mixture over the top of the brownie batter. Randomly drop teaspoons of the reserved brownie batter on top of the cream cheese layer. Using the tip of a knife, swirl through the white layer to create a swirl effect.
Place in the preheated oven for 30-40 minutes. Allow brownies to cool completely before cutting.
Made these to take as one of my potluck items for NYE. Used gluten free AP flour and topped with dark chocolate chips before baking. They have a delicious cake like texture. I loved the addition of the ACV to take the edge off of the sugar. Found this post through FoodGawker. Thanks for sharing and happy 2014!
Thank you, Susan! Happy 2014!
Made these according to recipe and had to throw away. .terrible
Oh, I’m so sorry to hear that. This recipe worked fine for me. I made it a few times and it was fine each time. You must have done something wrong.
Not sure what to add but I followed the instructions as written.
I’ve made it twice , the second time with double cheesecake topping . It was great, thank you for the recipe. I love your blog , I’ve already tried Crazy Dough , it’s wonderfully versatile .
Thank you, HannaT! I’m glad you like my recipes 🙂
