Chocolate Brownie Cheesecake

brownie

150gm butter

300gm dark chocolate (I like Nestle dark chocolate melts)

3 eggs

1 Cup caster sugar

1 1/2 Cups plain flour

1/4 Cup sour cream

250gm cream cheese

Melt butter and chocolate in a saucepan, (make sure you lick the bowl – the scrape-outs are the best part about cooking).

Whisk two of the eggs. Add the whisked eggs and 2/3 Cup caster sugar to the melted chocolate and butter and stir together.

Add the flour and sour cream to the chocolate mixture and stir in.

In a separate bowl, beat the cream cheese and the remaining 1/3 Cup sugar together. Add the egg and beat until just combined.

Grease and line a square tin with baking paper (my old friend) and spoon the chocolate mixture into the tin in blobs. Spoon the cream cheese mix in around the chocolate and use a knife or skewer to swirl it around. I tried for a marble effect but didn’t quite pull it off.

Bake for 55 minutes at 165 degrees Celsius. Cool in the tin.
