Chocolate, cream cheese + blackberry brownies

I love when a recipe slaps you in the face right out of the blue. I gave myself yesterday to concentrate and enjoy the task of recipe writing, the hubby pottered off to our local insomnia coffee shop with his Mac book to send off a few cvs + brought Lottie-daisy with him. I put lillie-b down for her snooze and away I went on my baking tangent.

Like anyone who is juggling a thousand things in their daily life when a notion hits I have to write it down quickly as it flithers off just as smart, in the full knowledge that a window will arise that I get to give it welly in the kitchen.

It could be one ingredient that sparks a whole idea or it would have to take a few jotted down notions to compile to one eureka moment. It just so happened it snowballed with me yesterday, half way through one recipe test another popped in so that got made + then written down. And sure here we all are  for this ridiculously good baked goody you will need...


100g butter
200g 70% chocolate
250g caster sugar
4 eggs
70g gluten free flour( or normal)
50g cocoa

Cream cheese layer
175g cream cheese room temp
3 tablespoons of butter room temp
50g sugar
1 egg
3 table spoons of Flour

1 cup of fresh blackberries

Firstly make your brownie batter. Over a double boiler melt the chocolate + butter, while that's melting beat the eggs until light in colour + then add the sugar. Whisk this until all the sugar is dissolved.

By now the chocolate and butter should be completely melted so take it off the boiling water + leave to the side. In another bowl sift together the dry ingredients then add to the eggs. Once fully folded in pour in your melted ingredients.

Now in another bowl add your cream cheese + butter and cream together thoroughly until smooth. Add the egg + sugar in next + mix well. Lastly add your flour.

So lets put this altogether, firstly line your shallow brownie pan with baking paper this makes it so easy to take out the brownies. Pour in the brownie batter first next pour over your cream cheese batter evenly over the chocolate you can even spread it slightly with a spatula. Lastly evenly place your fresh blackberries on top of all this gooey goodness, pop it all in the preheated @180' for 30 minutes + I mean 30 minutes don't even check it when the timer goes take it out any longer + the whole thing loses its gooey ness...

Once out of the oven let it sit for a few minutes before cutting into slices you should easily get 18 squares out of this recipe.

Now this can be devoured on its own or you can up the anty by pairing it with some of my country creme fresh{ you will find this in my blog}

Enjoy
