Sin-A-Mon Tales

A chronicle of my kitchen experiments, a little healthy a little indulgent

Brownie Cheesecake Marble

I love marble cakes…. There is something about the pattern which takes my heart away… And hence when I saw this at nupur’s blog it was an instant love. and what is not there to love… there is a bake cheese cake, there is a brownie and they are marbled together… totak win situatio. So I had bookmarked this dish and waiting for something to happen so that I can bake it and than came Diwali when I decided to make the giveaway basket myself… It was one of the most treasured items of the basket for me… the texture brilliant and the brownie and the cheesecake perfectly complimenting each other. We loved this one and I am sure will make it again

What I used

For the cheesecake

  • 170gms cream cheese – I actually used hung curd, hang curd in a musling cloth or put it in a sieve overnight so that all the whey can go away. Remember to keep this whole thing in fridge else the curd will turn sour
  • 1 tbsp. unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tbsp. sugar
  • 1 tbsp. all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract

For the brownie

  • 7 tbsp. melted butter
  • 2/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder

How I made it

  • In a bowl mix together all the cream cheese ingredients till blended
  • In a another bowl beat all the brownie ingredients well.
  • And now starts the layering… In a greased and dusted baking pan pour most of the brownie mixture, I poured about 2/3rds of the whole
  • Pour the cream cheese portion on top of it
  • Now pour some dollops of the brownie mixture on top of cream cheese and swril a knife or toothpick to get a nice pattern
  • Bake in a preheated oven at 175C for about 30 mins till done

Serve hot and wait for it to get over in a jiffy… its abs yummmm

Mandy I know this leave with depressed but darling much love passed your away, I hoping that this will motivate you to buy a oven and we can see Baking Buddies back in action

and this is off to a event hosted at Nupur’s blog… off to Blog Bites : The Holiday Buffet

    Hello monika…read your articles n the magazine and wanted to say big congrats….are ou looking to run any more workshops (also do you allow quiet babies to attend too…only kidding as I have a nine month old) just wondered if you have any baked cheesecake recipies with Indian ingredients….I am cheesecake lover and baked several types but all my recipies had a generous helping of cream cheese…having moved to BangLore I do find it hard to locate and at the same time quite dear to use as lavishly….I tried hung curds but the end result is quite different…..also any ideas as to where in BangLore I could Buy Wilton materials…any recommended shops/workshops to buy ready made fondant etc…looking forward to hearing from you…keen rather new baker in n. Bangalore .

    Many thanks
