Marble Cheese Brownie

Very rich chocolaty brownie with mild cheesy flavour!!! What a wonderful combination.
This recipe really fulfils my chocoholic craving, by using Van Houten cocoa powder.... and my most favorite Philadelphia cream cheese!!!

Recipe from small small baker

Brownie layer:
185g lightly salted butter
65g cocoa powder
3 eggs
160g caster sugar
60g self-raising flour
1 tsp vanilla extract

Cream cheese layer:
250g cream cheese90g
60g caster sugar
2 egg
45g self-raising flour
1 tsp vanilla extract

1. Gently melt the butter in a small, heavy-based saucepan, then stir in the cocoa until blended and set aside.
2. Beat the eggs until light and fluffy. Gradually add the sugar and stir in the chocolate mixture. Sift the flour and fold into the mixture. Add in the vanilla extract.
3. Whisk together the cream cheese, sugar and egg. Sift self-raising flour over this mixture and fold in. Add in the vanilla extract.
4. Pour 3/4 of the brownie mixture into the base-lined tin and spread the cream cheese mixture over it. Drop spoonfuls of the remaining brownie mixture on top, making swirls in it with a skewer for a marbled effect. Bake at 160C for 40 minutes, or until the top is springy to the touch.
5. Cool the baked cake in the tin. Turn it out and cut into squares.
