Chocolate Cheese Brownies

Brownies are heaven. They are simply divine. I loved the idea of having brownies with hot chocolate. Sometimes I think brownies could be mistaken as chocolates. Chewable, delicious- eating chocolates. Who could argue on that? Everybody who is close to me, seemed to love brownies too. Afer the ever fabulous choc fudge brownies, my friends loved this Chocolate Cheese Brownies. This recipe is actually from the cook book The Domestic Goddess by Nigella Lawson. Yes, Nigella Lawson gives good and reliable recipes, and that is something that we could not deny. And here I am, sharing this recipe, after several adaptations to suit my taste bud.
1)5 tbs of salted butter
2)1/2 cup of brown sugar
3)1/2 cup of caster sugar
4)125g of bitter sweet chocolate ( you can use semi-sweet choc)
5)50g of unsweetened chocolate ( you can use normal baking chocolate -add another extra
3 tbs of cocoa powder)
6)2-3 tbsp of cocoa powder
7) 3-4 thin slices of cold cream cheese-from the fridge
8) 2 tsp of vanilla essence
9) 1/2 cup of plain flour (**plus 6 tbsp of plain flour too- optional)
10) 4 large eggs
1) Beat eggs, first - in a bowl. Add sugar bit by bit- until triple in volume. Add vanilla.
2) Melt butter, chocolates and cocoa powder in a heavy saucepan- medium heat.
3) Remove saucepan from the heat.
4) Sift flour.
5) Fold in flour into egg mixture. Whisk well. Lastly, put in chocolate mixture. Mix well.
Pre heat oven - 150C.
6) Put in half of the chocolate mixture into baking pan. Cut cream cheese in thin slices. You will end up with chunks of cream cheese.
7) Arrange chunks/ slices of cream cheese on the choc mixture.
8)Cover the cream cheese with half of the chocolate mixture.
9) Bake the brownies mixture for about 25-30 mins. Lower the temperature to 100c
once the baking pan is inside- so that your brownies will not crack.
Happy Saturday, everyone.
