A Delicious recipe for chocolate and cream cheese tuxedo brownies.
1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1 large egg, at room temperature
2 Tablespoons all purpose flour
1 1/4 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup unsalted butter
2/3 cup unsweetened chocolate, chopped
2 cups granulated sugar
3 large eggs, at room temperature
2 Tablespoons milk
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Grease and lightly flour 13x9 inch baking pan.
To make filling. In a medium bowl, beat cream cheese with sugar until smooth. Add egg and flour and beat well. Set aside.
To prepare brownies. In a small bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder and salt. Set aside.
In a medium saucepan over low heat, melt butter with the chocolate, stirring occasionally, until smooth. Remove from heat, transfer to a large bowl, and let cool, 5 minutes. Stir in the sugar, eggs, milk, and vanilla and beat well. Add the dry ingredients and mix thoroughly.
Reserve 1/2 cup of the brownie batter and set it aside. Spread the rest of the batter evenly in the prepared pan.
Drop cream cheese mixture by tablespoonfuls over the batter. Next, drop the reserved brownie batter by teaspoonfuls in between the cream cheese filling. Using a small knife, swirl the two batters together, forming a decorative pattern.
Bake 40 to 50 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
Allow to cool completely before cutting and serving.
