I like a good brownie, and I love a good cheesecake, so why not combine the two together… It’s a marriage made in heaven.

This dish is not about ingredients, as much as it is about presentation.

So, you ready… Let’s get into the kitchen.

How to Make Tremendous Cheesecake Brownies

Step-by-Step

  1. PREP/PREPARE
  2. THE CHEESECAKE
  3. Gather your ingredients.
  4. Place all of the ingredients for the cheesecake into a bowl.
  5. Use a whisk or blender stick to thoroughly mix all the ingredients, and reserve.

  8. Add the butter, and both types of chocolate.
  9. Stir the mixture until blended.

  12. Add the flour, baking powder and salt to a large bowl, and whisk to combine.
  13. Add the melted chocolate, and stir until fully incorporated.
  14. THE ASSEMBLY
  15. Chef’s Note: I’m using a mini cheesecake pan to bake these; however, you could put them into simple paper baking cups.
  16. Place a rack in the middle position, and preheat the oven to 320 (160c).
  17. Add 1 tablespoon of the brownie mix to the bottom of the paper baking cup, or pan.

  19. Complete by adding 1 tablespoon of brownie mix to the top.
  20. Chef’s Note: Repeat for the remaining brownie/cheesecakes.

  22. Chef's Note: Allow to fully cool before serving.
  23. PLATE/PRESENT
  24. Place one on a serving dish, and garnish with a bit of whipped cream, and maybe a lemon twist. Enjoy.
