cheesecake + brownie + nutella = awesome

26 May 2010, 00:05

3 more days until Sydney’s biggest food blogger meet-up woot! At my last count we’ve got 74 bloggers coming! Any Sydney food bloggers not get an invite yet please email me!

The sudden chill in the air has made me crave for soul-comforting foods. I was tossing up between baking a super chocolatey brownie or a fabulously rich cheesecake. It was a battle of the titans (heh george!) and then I had a lightbulb moment and decided to combine the two. Awesome. And hey while we’re at it let’s chuck in some Nutella! So dudes I bring to you a cheesecake brownie with Nutella swirls! I used David Lebovitz’s recipe found here

Ingredients. My pic is a bit fail because you need 2 whole eggs plus an extra egg yolk. Oh and the cocoa is not in the pic. And my sugar is in a flour container. And you won’t need that much butter. Um maybe just ignore the pic..

I used Lindt’s new 70% cocoa specialty cooking chocolate. Shiny.

So. Layer your brownie mix. Dollop the cheesecake mixture in blobs all over the place and then dollop blobs of sweet sweet Nutella. Mmm baby. Be sure to put smaller blobs of Nutella than cheesecake but put more blogs so that later when you cut into squares each piece is covered in Nutella.

Grab a skewer or a knife and get swirling!

Pile o happiness!

Gotta have a glass of milk!
