Melt the butter and chocolate in a small pan over low heat, stirring frequently, until melted. Set aside to cool.Beat the cream cheese and 1/4 cup of the sugar in a medium bowl until smooth. Beat in one egg and set the mixture aside.Place the remaining 1 1/4 cups of sugar in a large bowl and beat in the remaining three eggs, one at a time until smooth. Add the vanilla and chocolate mixture and mix until well blended.Measure the flour and salt and then sift together directly into the chocolate batter. Mix the batter gently until well combined and no trace of the dry ingredients remainsspread three quarters of the chocolate batter evenly into prepared baking pan. Pour the cream cheese mixture evenly over the top of the chocolate layer in the pan. Then gently pour the remaining chocolate batter over the top of the cream cheese layer, spreading evenly with a spatula.Dip a rounded edged knife in the pan and lift straight up , creating a marbled effect in the batter. Repeat to create a pattern, either random or in rows.Bake for 45 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean or with only crumbs, not batter on it.
