TWD – Espresso Cheesecake Brownies

espresso cheesecake brownies

This is officially my second time baking brownies from scratch, and I must say… it’s a LOT easier than I thought it would be! They come together SO easily!!

These brownies have it all. Chocolatey, fudgey goodness. Cheesecakey yumminess. Slight hint of coffee flavor. Beautiful presentation. Its all there.

I will now indulge a few pointers which I have mentally noted in an effort to make things easier on me…. erm… you:

  • Room temperature cream cheese does NOT mean melted cream cheese. Therefore, do NOT accidentally forget to leave it on the pre-heating oven! Not that I did that or anything…….
  • When a recipe says leave 1/4 of the dough, be a bit more methodical and actually leave enough to get a nice swirl. Again, just in theory…
  • Double the brownie dough. I used an 8.5 x 8.5 inch dish and the brownie layer was SO thin.
  • Do NOT thoughtlessly grab a hot brownie pan until its been thouroughly cooled. NOOooo… it doesn’t matter if its silicone, it’s still hot. Sheesh….
  • And lastly do not get caught up watching Pirates of the Carribean: At World’s End whilst making these brownies. And if you do, don’t forget to set your timer several minutes before the ‘done’ time. Check!

For the recipe, head on over to see Melissa of Life in a Peanut Shell. She is aspiring to have a bakery of her own, just like me and her pictures are drool worthy!!
