Orange Cheesecake Brownie

Orange and chocolate are so perfectly matched that nothing can go wrong with this combination.

Ever since the last batch of brownies that I baked, I was craving for more.  So today, I decided to try this recipe.  Also to support my friend Anncoo Journal for the Little Thumbs Up event.

If you like fudgy brownies like I do, you got to try this Orange Cheesecake Brownies.

What you need:

Chocolate base

140g butter
200g dark chocolate
150g caster sugar
1 tsp of vanilla essence
2 eggs
60g plain flour
60g cocoa 

Orange cream cheese filling

88g cream cheese
50g caster sugar
1 tsp of vanilla extract
1 egg, beaten
75g plain flour
1 tsp of orange essence
zest of 1 orange  (I added one more orange)


Preheat the oven to 170°C and line a rectangular baking tin with greaseproof paper.

Put the butter, chocolate and sugar into a bowl and microwave until melted, stirring every 30 seconds or so.  Set aside.

Beat the sugar, orange essence and vanilla essence into the cream cheese, then beat in the egg, flour and zest of the orange to create the cream cheese filling. 

Add in the eggs and vanilla into the chocolate mixture and mix until smooth and glossy.

Add the flour and cocoa into the chocolate mix and beat well.

Pour into the lined cheesecake mould.

Spoon the cream cheese and mix into the brownie in blobs and use a knife to move the mixture around, creating a marbled effect.

Bake in the oven for about 30 minutes and allow to cool fully in the mould before cutting into square pieces to serve.

    I like the combination of orange and cheesecake in your brownies. The tang seems to marry the chocolate texture very well :D
