Cream Cheese Swirl Brownies

Every once in a while a recipe is so good it deserves a second shot in the spotlight!
So I thought it was a good time to share this recipe for Cream Cheese Swirl Brownies.
If you are looking for a decadent and delicious brownie recipe, this is it!

 

Cream Cheese Swirl Brownies
 
Ingredients
The Brownie
  • 1½ cups butter
  • 2¼ cups sugar
  • 5 eggs
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • ¾ cup + 1 tbsp flour
  • ¾ cup + 1 tbsp cocoa powder
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ⅔ cup chocolate chips
The Cream Cheese Swirl
  • 8 oz cream cheese, at room temperature
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • ½ tsp vanilla
  • 1 egg yolk
Instructions
The Brownie
  1. In a saucepan on low heat, melt together the butter and sugar. Then transfer the mixture into a mixing bowl, and set aside to cool.
  2. In a separate bowl, sift together flour, cocoa powder and salt.
  3. Once the sugar mix has cooled slightly, add the eggs and vanilla. Mix well.
  4. Combine the wet ingredients with the dry. Mix well.
  5. Add chocolate chips. Set aside.
The Cream Cheese Swirl
  1. Beat together cream cheese, sugar, vanilla and egg yolk, until well combined.
  2. Once you have the brownie mix all ready, add half of the batter to a lightly greased & dusted dish (see Tips! for dish dusting).
  3. Then add half of the cream cheese mix in clumps over your brownie.
  4. Using a knife, swirl the cream cheese mix, until you have a marbling effect like above.
  5. Then add the remaining brownie batter.
  6. Then add the remaining cream cheese batter in clumps, and swirl again.
  7. Bake in a 325 degree preheated oven for approximately 1 hour. The square will be done when the edges of the brownie have puffed, the centre of the cake feels firm to the touch, and a toothpick when inserted comes out clean. Just check it for doneness, as you may need to bake it longer...
  8. When the cake is done, remove from the oven and let cool to room temperature.
  9. Chill in the fridge for at least 2-3 hours.
Notes
Use cocoa powder instead of flour to dust your pan! That way, you won't see the flour on your brownies!

Just a quick picture to show you how to add the spoonfuls of cream cheese mix.

You are now just a short moment to pure deliciousness!

  7. I adore cream cheese brownies. Mine never turn out as pretty as yours look in the picture! Recipe sounds divine.

  8. I love these! Whenever I make them, I feel the cream cheese seems overtaken by the brownie base though. I suppose upping the cheese couldn’t hurt to make things even more delish. Thanks for sharing this amazing-looking brownie recipe.

  10. Olá Jo-Anna:

    Foi um sucesso!
    Adoramos o sabor e a textura, suas dicas foram muito importantes.
    Obrigada,

  11. I don’t know why I always assume that if something is swirled, it tastes better. Maybe because it’s usually swirled with cream cheese, and I’m a sucker for cream cheese. These look wonderful!!

  12. I’m always on the look out for a decadent brownie! Thats the best kind! Would love it you’d share this at Saturday Share with Us!
