Blueberry Cheesecake Brownies

Blueberry Cheesecake Brownies | A Dutchie Baking

One of my favorite British bakers, Paul Hollywood, has a new show on Food Network UK called “City Bakes”. He gets to travel all over the world to visit bakeries – I’m so darn jealous! Anyway, he visited a cheesecake place in New York in the first episode and after he tried like a 1000 cheesecakes (and even Paul Hollywood can feel full, I have discovered) he made cheesecake brownies in the bakery.

My mouth started salivating at even the thought of the brownies so I decided to give them a go with a small addition: blueberries. I love fruit in cheesecakes and together with chocolate so nothing could go wrong there 😉 Hope you’ll enjoy the recipe as much as I did!

Blueberry Cheesecake Brownies Recipe

Adapted from: City Bakes by Paul Hollywood

Tools: 33×23 cake pan

Ingredients:

Brownie mix

225 grams dark chocolate
225 grams unsalted butter
3 large eggs
225 grams caster sugar
75 grams self raising flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
175 grams chocolate chips
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Cheesecake mix

200 grams full-fat cream cheese
1 1/2 tsp cornstarch
15 grams caster sugar
1 medium egg
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
175 grams blueberries
  1. Line the cake pan with baking parchment. Preheat the oven to 170C/340F.
  2. Break the chocolate up and place in a heatproof bowl with the butter. Heat au-bain-marie until everything has melted, set aside to cool.
  3. Whisk the eggs and sugar until fluffy and pale. Add the chocolate/butter mixture and whisk until incorporated. Fold in the rest of the brownie mix ingredients. Pour into the tin and smooth over.
  4. Beat all the cheesecake mixture ingredients together until thoroughly combined.
  5. Drop spoonfuls of cheesecake mixture into the brownie batter. Use a spatula to create swirls. Bake for 25-30 minutes. A bit of mixture should stick to a skewer when inserted into the brownie.
  6. Leave to cool completely on a wire rack before cutting.
