Eating Sweet Recipes

Layered Brownie Cheesecake

The sun is shining, the sky is blue (sounds like a nursery rhyme, doesn’t it?) and it seems like summer has finally arrived since I am showing off my still very white legs, which honestly took some effort. But how do you get those legs tanned if you don’t show them? Anyway, it’s pretty warm outside and as a lucky coincidence I suddenly have more time at hand being in the last week of my semester.

So how to make use of that time besides studying? Baking! Although I’m more of a cook than a baker I sometimes just have the desire to create something sweet, and since I wanted to bake for my mathematics class anyways this worked out perfectly!

You need:

  • 120 g of butter
  • 100 g of flour
  • 120 g of bittersweet chocolate
  • 200 + 150 g of sugar
  • 5 eggs
  • 60 ml of milk
  • 500 g of cream cheese
  • 1 package of vanilla sugar
  • 125 g of plain curd
  • 200 g of raspberries

Preheat your oven to 180°C, prepare the springform pan with a baking sheet (I like to jam it between the bottom and the brim of the pan) or grease it with some butter and dredge it with some flour. Chop the chocolate into chunks.

brownie-1 Melt chocolate and butter in a small pot at low heat while stirring occasionally. Put it aside and stir in 200 g of the sugar, then mix in 2 eggs and the milk with your electric whisk. Strain the flour into the mixture and fold it in, then fill everything into the spring pan.

Bake the bottom for 25 minutes while preparing the cream cheese layer. Then reduce the oven heat to 160°C.

brownie-2 brownie-3 Now to the cream cheese layer: Mix cream cheese, 150 g of the sugar, 3 eggs and vanilla sugar, then add the plain curd. Mash the raspberries and spread them onto the brownie bottom, then add the cream cheese mixture. Bake everything for another 50-55 minutes.

Take the cake out of the oven and let it cool, then loosen it from the brim of the pan. It’s best to keep it in the fridge before serving!

There is something about the combination of brownies and cheesecake and something fruity that is definitely attracting me, since I baked a similar treat a while ago (do you remember the Cheesecake Brownies?). But this time the layers were definitely intriguing, and I mashed the raspberries to make an additional layer this time. Let’s say it was gone in a minute, so everyone loved it. Hope you are inspired!
