Cheese Brownies

The original recipe comes with nut topping.But I didn't top any nuts,so just name it Cheese Brownies.On the second thought, I might have top it with nuts,to cover the cracked surface.Probably, the cracked was cause by the eggs I used, a grade A's egg.After whip the cheese part, I found it quite runny, And I'm having a hard time to bake it nicely.I keep adding the baking time,till I've to cover it with the aluminium foil to stop the browning.Anyway, its taste  yummy,especially the second day.Here's the recipe from Kevin Chai ( A piece of cake)

Brownie Ingredients: 
150 gm dark chocolate
50 gm butter
2 eggs
50 gm caster sugar
40 gm plain flour
20 gm self-raising flour
1/2 tsp vanilla essence

Method:
Lined 7 in square baking tin with aluminium foil.Set aside.( I use 9x5 in baking tin)
Melt the chocolate and butter over a simmering water,till the chocolate melt.
Whisk eggs and sugar until light and fluffy.
Stir in sifted flours,chocolate mixture and vanilla essence.
Spread mixture into prepared tin and refrigerated it for 30 minutes.


Cheese Ingredients:
60 gm butter
200 gm cream cheese
50 gm caster sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla essence
2 eggs ( grade B)
2 tbsp plain flour

Method:
Beat butter, cream cheese ,sugar and vanilla essence until creamy and smooth.
Add in eggs, beat well after each addition.
Mix in flour.

Spread the cheese mixture over the brownies.
Bake in pre-heated oven for at 180C for 40-45 minutes, or insert a skewer and comes out clean.

Cheese and chocolate? How not to drool although I don't eat that often for my age but the colors are so contrast and striking.

It could be,but I still suspect the eggs.Normally I used grade B, but this time I used grade A, silly me.

most of the cheese brownies I've seen have a cracked top, i don't think it's your fault, maybe that's why they used the nut topping LOL
anyhow, yours look great, wish I could have a piece
