Donna Hays Chocolate Cheesecake Brownie



Woooaaahhh did u hear the thunder earlier on?? the lightning... scared the s*** out of me lol... it was raining so so heavily and now it has stopped.... the blue sky is out... and the weather is absolutely wonderful now...







So anyway.. today I decided to try out Donna Hay's Chocolate Cheesecake Brownies... Brownies and cheesecake? What is there not to like? I have said bef that desserts are my downfall. I'm not a potato chip kinda girl. I dont like to snack, really (hubby says: "Sure"...)... I dont like candy. Mildly ("Sure...") interested in ice cream ... unless it's on a brownie. Cookies are fine.. but it has to be homemade. To me, the best cookies are the ones just out of the oven. Heavenly! Chocolates are ok.. but a chocolate cake? Oh gosh...the right chocolate cake can give me an orgasm.. hahahahahah I am KIDDING! But you get the drift. Basically .. I like my desserts... Cheesecakes, puddings.. you name it.







Honestly, if you are a chocolate lover, you gotta try this brownie. Seriously. You have to!! Make it for your loved ones, for Valentine's, for birthdays.. or even for ur afternoon tea... enjoy the recipe!


Ingredients
185g butter, melted (i used unsalted and added 1/4tsp of salt) 
1/4 cup cocoa powder, sifted (i used valrhona) 
1 cup caster sugar
2 eggs
1 cup plain flour

Cheesecake
285g cream cheese, softened and chopped
4 1/2 tbsp caster sugar
2 eggs





Method
Preheat oven to 160 degree C
Place butter, cocoa powder, sugar, eggs and flour in a bowl and mix well until smooth
Spoon into a 8" square slice tin line with baking paper
To make cheesecake, process the cream cheese, sugar and eggs in a mixer until smooth
Place large spoonfuls of the cheesecake nixture on top of the chocolate mixture and swirl with a butter knife
Bake for 45-50 minutes or until set

Salam Rima ..

You so in love with desserts, yes? Me too cumanya I tak berapa 'ringan tangan', unlike you.

Boleh tanya something? You masak apa setiap hari besides baking. You masak lauk2 kita or ikut style omputih steak etc.

Rima said...

ROTFLMAO good.. I am keeping these cheesecake to myself.. awayyyyy fm Yat!! hahahahah

Rima said...

Salam somuffins
Besides baking.. i macam isteri isteri mithali yg lain juga .. "cough cough" kena masak setiap hari.. well except on weekends ah..

I dont take lunch.. so usually i will cook something simple for Sonia.. fishball soup ke.. macaroni soup ke.. anything simple lah.. our dinner on weekdays semua nye simple aje.. pasta.. sandwiches.. grill chicken ke.. u know.. that kinda thing.. friday/sat i will cook nasi cos Hairi balik dari camp.. so lauk pauk .. my hb tak cerewet one.. ape i masak semua dia makan except my lemak cili api cos he said too pedas and wud always say the same thing..

silcleo said...

so I made this just now ....
the brownie base is devine.
the cheesecake turned out like the texture of scrambed eggs!!! oh no! and also tasted mainly of eggs, Rob said.
Granted, I forgot to swirl with a knife ... but aiya ......
what do you think went wrong?

Rima said...

Hi SIL
Sorry ur brownie didnt turn out as planned...

Hmmm.. it will only hv a texture of scrambled eggs if u double boil ur cream cheese and didnt let it cool bef adding eggs.. in this case u dont hv to double boil anything.. did u whisk a cold cream cheese or did u use a room temp cream cheese??

This was what i did.. prepare brownie part first.. whisk cream cheese for a few minutes.. add sugar.. add eggs.. whisk till smooth.. pour cream cheese mixture over brownie mixture and make a swirl.. i used chopstick.. swirl didnt turn out well.. shud hv used butter knife instead..

ilah manaf said...

Hee Hee I'm going to try this for mother's day tmr... insya-allah.
cos im ibu loves brownie

Rima said...

Good luck Ilah... make sure ur cream cheese tu room temp ok... and use butter knife to make the swirl... let me know the outcome..

ilah manaf said...

the end product not too good ... hee hee im too excited ... so my brownie mixture abit sticky ...
the cheese cake alhamdulilah menjadi ... but hee hee tak leh swirl ... it became patch-ed... later i dah load ...i link kan kat u ...

Rima said...

Sticky?? Lahhhh nape pulak eh.. Hmmm ur baking time n temp betul tak?? Brownie shudnt be too soft n definately not sticky at all..

ilah manaf said...

Hi Rima,

I've been a silent admirer of your blog, will check in to your site first whenever I log in everyday haha...

I made this recently and my whole family loves it, including my 4-year old granddaughter who is a very picky eater.

I also made the fruit pastry last weekend and intend to make the Heart Jello soon for my son-in-law.

May Allah bless you and your family for being so kind to share your fabulous recipes including your splendid photography skills.

Salam,
Zainab
