Choc-cheese Brownies

My pile of work is yelling out to me. I am all stressed out.  The weather is no better.  It has been raining cats and dogs for many days now.  I needed a break, I needed to bake something to distress.  The next thing that came to my mind is this superb choc-cheese brownies. 

Choc-cheese Brownies

125g butter
125g dark chocolate
175g castor sugar

1 tsp vanilla essence
120g plain flour
1/2 tsp baking powder

For cheese topping
250g cream cheese
1 large egg
50g castor sugar
1 tbsp lemon juice

1.  Melt butter and chocolate in the microwave oven or over a pot of boiling water.
2.  Leave to cool slightly and stir in sugar and vanilla essence.
3.  Then stir in eggs, one at a time until well combined.
4.  Fold in sifted flour and baking powder.
5.  Pour into an 8 inch square pan.
6.  Drop spoonful of topping onto the brownies mixture.
7.  Run a knife through the mixture to give the swirl effect.
8.  Bake at 180C for 30 to 35 mins.

great that you still can spare some time baking, i haven't been baking for many weeks already, work & house chaos take up a lot of my time.

Little corner & crustabake : That's what got me interested in the brownies.

Agnes : That's the predicament of working mums :-(. That's why I have been slacking in my baking, too.

The Cake Crusader : :-)
