Cheesecake Brownie

Here's my bake last night ...

Need to utilise my cream cheese before expiry. Best enjoy brownie with ice cream (sinful though)

This may not be the best, just in case you care to try...

Ingredients :

113gm butter
120gm unsweentened baking chocolate

1 cup of sugar
2 eggs
1 cup of plain flour
1 tsp of vanilla
½ tsp of baking powder
¼ tsp of salt

For the topping :
220gm cream cheese
1 egg
1/3 cup of sugar

Heat oven to 180c. Using 8 x 8 inch square baking pan. Set aside.
Melt butter and chocolate in a saucepan over low heat (using double boil method), stirring occasionally, until smooth (4 to 7 minutes). Remove from heat.
Stir in sugar and vanilla. Add eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each addition. Add flour, baking powder and salt; mix just until all ingredients are moistened and brownie mixture is smooth.
Spread brown mixture into prepared baking pan.
For the topping beat the cheese, egg and sugar until smooth. Drop the cream cheese mixture on top of the brown batter. Swirl together using a knife or skewer.
Bake for 25 to 33 minutes or until brownies just begin to pull away from side of pan. (I took longer time to bake for this) Cool completely and then cut into bars and serve.
