Chocolate and Raspberry Cheesecake Brownies

Chocolate and Raspberry Cheesecake Brownies

Well we loved this recipie, my boys husband and I.  It's a little sticky but very tasty and even better the next day.  For me this is a Saturday afternoon with a cup of tea, feet up and the TV on type of treat.  Chocolate and raspberries are a winning combination whether it's with milk or white chocolate they are complemented well with the sweet and the slightly sour..try it and see.  Print out and save our receipes, create your own folder of favourites..

Makes 16 brownies.

For the brownie mix:

160g unsalted butter, plus extra for greasing.

170g Dark chocolate

350g unrefined golden caster sugar

70g plain flour

pinch of salt

5 medium size eggs

2 teaspoons of vanilla extract

100g white chocolate broken into small pieces

For the cheesecake mix:

 350g cream cheese ( in previous recipes I have tried the low fat cream cheese and recipes tend to not work as well, so I don't really recommend it)

75g unrefined caster sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

2 medium eggs

170g fresh raspberries.

Method:

Preheat the oven to 180 degrees C/fan 160 degrees/gas mark 4.

Grease and line a 20cm square brownie tin.

To make the brownie mixture - melt the butter and chocolate in a heatproof bowl over a pan of barely simmering water, make sure the bowl doesn't touch the water. Stir until completely melted and combined.  Remove from the heat and set aside to cool.

Combine the sugar, flour and salt in a large mixing bowl, pour over the cooled chocolate and mix until smooth.  Beat the eggs separately before adding to the mixing bowl along with the vanilla extract and the white chocolate.  Blend together until you create a shiny chocolately mixture.  Pour this into the prepared tin,  

Next make the cheesecake mixture.  Whisk the cream cheese, sugar, vanilla extract  and eggs until smooth and creamy.  Pour this carefully over the brownie mix, trying to create an even layer.  Drop the raspberries into the tray.  Use a fork to drag the cheesecake mix through the brownie mix to create a marbled effect.  Try to ensure the raspberries are almost fully pushed into the mixture.  

Cook in the preheated oven for about 40-45 minutes.  After 40 minutes remove the tin and check to see if the brownies are set but still wobble slightly, return them to the oven if they need a bit longer.

Leave in the tin to cool, before turning out and cutting into squares.

Enjoy!
