Brownie Butter Cheesecake (布郎尼牛油芝士蛋糕)


I saw my Cheese Butter Cake was featured in 3 most viewed for Cook-Your-Book #8.  I was so surprised and at the same time filled with joy as this is my 2nd time been featured 
in Cook-Your-Book.
 I’m so happy and many thanks for all your encouragement.  

It was 8th day of CNY.  After the Lo Hei dinner by my siblings, all including my hubby had decided to proceed with playing mah-jong.  As I don’t know how to play the game so I decided to come home with my boys.  

On our way home, my 2 boys requested for cheese brownies.  I browsed through cookbook by
蔡老师,完美芝士 and decided to bake this Brownie Butter Cheesecake (布郎尼牛油芝士蛋糕), which I'm baking it for the 1st time.
This cake has best of both worlds.  It’s butter cake with cheese brownie on the bottom.  I could smell the buttery and rich chocolate aroma coming from the oven. 
It’s so irresistible
I’m contributing this recipe to Cook-Your-Book #9
organised by Joyce of Kitchen Flavour

I hope you’ll like this cake. 
Happy Baking with Cook-Your-Book!

  1. Congrats! I was going to bake brownies for Renri too, but was not feeling too well, so told my kids they had to wait. Looks yummy!

  2. Hi Amy,
