Cheesecake Brownies

Cheesecake brownies
From: Dottygumdrop

Ingredients
Melted butter, to grease
150g butter, chopped
300g good-quality dark cooking chocolate, chopped
3 eggs
215g (1 cup) caster sugar
225g (1 1/2 cups) plain flour
65g (1/4 cup) sour cream
1 x 250g pkt cream cheese, at room temperature

Method
1. Preheat oven to 180°C. Brush a square 20cm (base measurement) cake pan with melted butter to lightly grease. Line the base and 2 opposite sides with non-stick baking paper, allowing it to overhang.

2. Use an electric beater to beat the cream cheese and 75g (1/3 cup) of sugar in a bowl until smooth. Add 1 egg and beat until just combined.

3. Combine the butter and chocolate in a saucepan over low heat. Cook, stirring, for 5 minutes or until chocolate melts and mixture is smooth. Remove from heat. Set aside for 5 minutes to cool.

4. Whisk the remaining 2 eggs in a small bowl. Add whisked eggs and remaining 140g (2/3 cup) of the sugar to the chocolate mixture, and stir to combine. Add the flour and sour cream and stir until well combined.

5. Spoon chocolate and cream cheese mixtures, alternately, over base of pan. Use a skewer to swirl to create a marble effect. Bake in oven for 30 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean. Set aside in the pan for 1 hour to cool. Cut into squares to serve.
