Cheese Brownies (布朗尼起司)


I’m glad to share that I was being featured for one of 
the best 3 view posts for Cook-Your-Books #6.
Thank you for visiting my blog. 

 Now, Look! Look! Look!  Look at my latest obsession – Cheese Brownies.  Ha ha ha!  This is so decadent.  Believe me, just one bite, it’ll be enough to satisfy your sweet tooth :D

Christmas is coming.  I think this make a good Christmas treat to share with friends and beloved ones.

It is a very moist and rich cake.  The brownies itself is intensely chocolatey, and the cream cheese dice provide a tangy contrast in between the brownies. 

 My family and I prefer the moist brownies as we love the ooey gooey texture.  Therefore, I added 1 tsp golden syrup into the batter.  I was told by a chef when I attended a baking lesson that golden syrup will make the cake texture smoother and moist.  It also enhances flavour to the cake.

When the cake is freshly out from the oven, it was so tempting to eat it.  But wait!!!!  You’ll be glad if you do it.  The texture of the cake will turn chewy and amazing when it is cooled and settled.

Please note.  Do not cut the cake when it is still warm.  It’ll like kind of fall apart.   Let the cake sits cool for few hours and you will get a super gorgeous square cut.


280g       Chocolate (broken into pieces)
110g       butter
100g       brown sugar  (I reduced it to 70g)
2              eggs (beaten)
70g         plain flour
250g       cream cheese (diced)
1 tsp        Golden syrup (optional)
40g         Chopped Walnut (optional)


(1)Preheat oven to 180°C, grease and line a 18cm (7”) baking tray with aluminium foil.

(2)Melt the chocolate and butter over low heat.  Remove from heat, stir in brown sugar until melted.  Leave to cool.

(3)Add in beaten egg, stir well.  Gradually fold in flour and cheese dices, mix well.

(4)Spread batter into prepared tray.  Bake in oven for 30-35 minutes or until cooked.  When cool, slice and serve.


I’m contributing this recipe to

  1. Hi Amy, thanks so much for linking this to my Christmas event. We love brownies very much, esp the moist fudgy type. Thanks for the tip on golden syrup, must rmbr it for the next time I make brownies. :)

  2. It looks really moist and tempting! Love brownies like these too but dare not eat too much as they are very high in calories:P I like the neat cut of your brownies.

  3. Hi Amy, given a choice, I would go for brownies than cookies. Rich in flavours.
