Good morning everyone, 2014 is quickly coming to an end and that means holidays, shopping, parties, vacations....Well, no vacation for me as the boss froze our leaves for these 2 months ;( but lotsa shopping (even the husband noticed that I've been shopping too much this month, haha) and an upcoming Xmas party, say YES!
How are you ladies spending the holidays? I'm sure there'll be lots of cooking and baking involved ;).
Yesterday I baked this sinfully fudgy brownies with swirls of Nutella Cheesecake in it..hmmm, it was even better than how I expected it to be. It was for a friend of mine and still we got to taste it. So here goes, Nutella Cheesecake Brownies which is super moist and chocolatey to the max. Enjoy!!!
You need :
An 8 inch square pan, greased and lined with baking paper.
Brownie batter :
1/2 cup butter
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup plain flour
3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
5 tbsp. Nutella
8 oz Philadelphia cheese
1/2 cup castor sugar
1/3 cup Nutella
Heat oven to 170C.
Beat butter and brown sugar, add eggs and beat well. Add in cocoa powder, flour, mix. Lastly add Nutella and mix till combined. I just mixed it all using a bowl and spatula.
Cheesecake batter :
Beat room temperature cheese with an electric mixer. Add in sugar, mix well. Add eggs one at a time, beat. Lastly add in Nutella and ensure that all in combined well.
Now pour brownie batter into prepared pan. Then scoop out cheesecake batter onto the brownie batter till it forms a top layer. You may leave it as that or do swirls using a butter knife.
Bake in preheated oven at 170C for 45-50 minutes till a skewer inserted in the middle comes with crumbs (not too dry).
Cool on a wiring rack. let it sit in the pan about an hour.
