Servings: Makes 16 brownies
Brownie Mixture:
1/2 cup unsalted butter
1/3 cup Dutch process cocoa
2 eggs
3/4 cup superfine sugar
1/2 cup self-rising flour
1/8 tsp. salt
1 tsp. vanilla extract
3/4 cup bittersweet chocolate chips

Cream Cheese Mixture:
3/4 cup (180g) cream cheese at room temperature
1 egg
1/3 cup superfine baker's sugar
1/4 cup self-rising flour
1 tsp. vanilla extract

Butter and lightly flour an 8 x 8-inch square cake pan. Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C).

Combine the flour and salt. Set aside.
Melt the butter in a small, heavy-based saucepan, then stir in the cocoa until blended and set aside. Beat the eggs until light and fluffy. Gradually add the sugar and stir in the chocolate mixture. Sift the flour/salt mixture over the top and fold it into the mixture. Add vanilla. Fold in the chocolate chips.

For Cream Cheese Mixture:
Whisk together cream cheese, egg and sugar (or use an electric mixer). Sift 1/4 cup self-rising flour over this mixture and fold in. Add 1 tsp. vanilla extract.

Pour three-quarters of the brownie mixture into the prepared pan and spread the cream cheese mixture over it. Drop spoonfuls of the remaining brownie mixture on top, making swirls with a knife. Bake 35 to 40 minutes, or until the top is springy to the touch, being careful not to over bake. Cool brownies in the pan, then cut into squares.

Makes 16 brownies.

I would have wished that they were more fudge like..instead they were more cake like. But the creamcheese was good.
