2018 is coming to an end!! I cannot wrap my head around the fact that it has been over a year since I started this little space on the web. IT FEELS AWESOME and overwhelming and scary all at the same time. There are so many things I want to share. However, I will be doing that slowly through small individual blog posts. I hope you guys enjoy it as much as I do. Thank you for your constant support. To celebrate this bond of ours, I will be sharing some recipes that I have been working on and have finally managed to nail. The first one: BROWNIES! I mean, it was obvious! Who doesn’t love brownies?
These Brownies will take you to Brownie heaven and you will not believe how easy they are to put together yet so impressive! Let’s get baking.
Raspberry Cheesecake swirled Brownies
Author: Anjali Johny
150g unsalted butter
270g dark chocolate
2 large eggs
120g dark brown sugar
1 tbsp vanilla extract
2 tsp coffee + 1 tbsp warm water
100g all-purpose flour
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
300g cream cheese
1 tsp vanilla extract
100 g fresh/frozen raspberries pureed
Grease and line a 10×10 inch baking pan and Preheat your oven to 170 C. Melt the chocolate and butter in the microwave or in the double boiler, add the sugar and whisk it in once the chocolate is melted.
Once the mixture is cool enough, add the eggs and whisk it in well, then add the vanilla and coffee mixture.
Sift the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients and fold in with a spatula until just combined.
Pour this mixture into the prepared pan and keep it aside.
In a separate bowl, mix the room temperature cream cheese, sugar and vanilla and whisk well. Lastly, add the raspberries but do not mix them all the way to have a swirly effect.
Dollop this mixture on the brownie mixture and using a butter knife or a spoon, swirl it around till you are satisfied with the look of the brownie.
Bake this for around 35-40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out almost clean (For gooey fudgy brownie) Let the brownies cool down completely in the pan before cutting a piece, otherwise, they will fall apart.
Until next time!
