Red Velvet Cheesecake Brownies

Red Velvet Cheesecake Brownies

Red is such a sexy color. It brings instant attraction and allure to something (or someone), and this good old brownies is no exception. I have been seeing a lot of these around and I told myself I’m not gonna give in to the temptation, but I’m so human…with a weakness for brownies and cheesecake and swirly things, and the color red. 😉

Happy Baking!! ü

How can you say no to such a  lovely and delicious thing?  Nom, nom, nom 🙂

Recipe type: Baking, Dessert,Brownies and Bars, Red Velvet Brownies
Serves: Makes 16-20 bars
  • Red Velvet:
  • 1 stick unsalted butter, (8 Tbsp) melted
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ¼ cup cocoa powder
  • Pinch salt
  • 1 tablespoon red food coloring
  • 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
  • 2 eggs
  • ¾ cup all purpose flour
  • Cream Cheese Layer:
  • 8 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Butter an 8 x 8 inch pan. {I used glass}
  2. Brownie layer: Add melted butter to a large bowl and add sugar, vanilla, cocoa powder, salt, food coloring, and vinegar, mixing after each addition. Whisk the eggs into the cocoa mix. Mix in the flour until lightly combined. Pour the batter into the prepared baking pan, saving ⅓ to ¼ cup of the batter for the cream cheese layer.
  3. Cream cheese layer: Blend together cream cheese, sugar, egg, and vanilla in a medium mixing bowl. Spread the cream cheese on top of the brownie batter in the pan.
  4. Put the remaining cocoa batter over the cream cheese layer. Using the tip of a knife, swirl through the cream cheese mixture to create a swirl pattern. Bake the brownies for 30 minutes. Remove to a cooling rack and allow them to cool completely before cutting.
  5. To store: wrap remaining brownies in saran wrap and keep in fridge.
