  • 1 cup unsalted butter or margarine softened
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 tsp salt

Cheesecake Swirl

  • 8 oz cream cheese softened
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract


  • Pre-heat the oven to 350° F and lightly grease a 13 by 9-inch baking dish with cooking spray.
  • Cream the butter and sugar; beat in eggs and vanilla. Add cocoa, then the flour and salt. Beat well then pour the brownie batter into the prepared pan.
  • Mix the cheesecake swirl ingredients until creamy and dollop mixture over brownie batter.
  • Carefully cut through the batter using a sharp knife to make swirls. Not too much because it will look messy.
  • Bake in the pre-heated oven for 25-30 minutes or until edges look crisp and center is barely set.


To make dark brownies use half dark and half unsweetened cocoa powder for the amount of cocoa called for. 1/4 cup is equivalent to 4 TBSP.
Bake brownies for no more than 25 minutes for fudgy brownies.
