Cake Dessert

Red Velvet Cheesecake Brownies


Can I please tell you that these brownies are amazing?! One of the best brownies I’ve had, besides the S’mores Milo Brownies of course. Heeeeeeee… I tried to describe these brownies, but quite honestly, I don’t think I can do them any justice. You have got to try it at least once. It’s so quick and simple to make them, no need for a double boiler, no need to melt anything.

Just 2 large mixing bowl, your ingredients, baking pan, your pre-heated oven, a craving for some delicious dessert, and you are good to go! I love making those swirls, the process is so therapeutic, and it makes me feel a little artsy. I like to think that every swirled cake is unique because you can’t replicate the exact same swirl for each cake you bake even if you try. Here is a picture of how the brownie looks like when I cut into it, and just seconds before I stuffed my face with it. ๐Ÿ˜€

Here’s how the little slices of velvety heaven was made.

Cheesecake Batter
  1. Use a spatula to soften the cheese before adding vanilla, sugar, and eggs.

  3. Carefully pour mixture over brownie batter and smooth out the top.
  4. Using a teaspoon, scoop dollops of reserved brownie batter on top of cheesecake batter.

      Hi Marie, the vinegar is to activate the baking agent used to make the cake rise. Don’t worry, you will not taste it at all.
