Brownies are something I don't make that often, if I'm honest they're never quite how I want them to be! Also, they're less fun to decorate than cakes. These were really yummy. I was exhausted last Monday after staying up on Sunday night to watch the Oscars so I wanted something quick and easy (no jokes you lot!).
I found these on Katie's lovely blog. It's always a good go to for heavenly recipies that turn out yummy stuff every time without fair! Although I love Bailey's, I didn't have any so I used Kahlua instead. It's a total favourite of mine! So Cake Mondays 001 was pretty tough, 002 was medium and listen folks - no excuses this week because 003 is dead easy! Bake and enjoy!
Kahlua Cheesecake Brownies
- 110g butter
- 110g dark chocolate
- 120g caster sugar
- 60g plain flour
- 2 free range eggs
- glug of Kahlua
- 225g cream cheese
- 40g caster sugar
- 1 egg
- another glug of Kahlua
1. Preheat the oven to 150c, grease and line a brownie tray, mine was a 25cm long tray. Melt the butter and chocolate in a ban marie. Remove from heat, add the sugar and stir then leave to cool slightly.
2. Beat the eggs one at a time into the brownie mixture, beating until glossy. Stir in the Kahlua and fold in the flour. Pour the mixture into the tin.
3. For the cheesecake, beat the cream cheese and the sugar together. Add the egg then stir in the Kahlua. Once the mixture is all well combined, pour on top of the brownie mixture.
4. Bake in the oven for 25-30 minutes (longer if you used a smaller tin/deeper mixture), leave for 15-20 minutes before cutting into slabs.
