  • Lemon Pistachio Cheesecake Marbled Brownies
  • 250 gram of bittersweet dark chocolate
  • 200 grams of butter
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup of brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • 1½ cups of all purpose flour
  • ¼ cup of quality dark cocoa
  • ½ teaspoon of baking powder
  • a pinch of salt
  • 125 grams of cream cheese
  • ½ cup of caster sugar
  • the zest of 1 lemon
  • ½ cup of shelled pistachios

Cheesecake and Brownies?! Yes! You heard correctly. To be sure these are decadent little monsters so cut them into small squares. Oh who am I kidding? Go on, go all out and serve them with a little of my Lemon Curd Ripple Ice Cream!

  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C (356°F)
  2. Grease and line a sponge roll, brownie pan or oblong baking dish.
  3. Using a double boiler (bain-marie) or microwave, melt the chocolate.
  4. Melt the butter separately to avoid burning the chocolate and then mix the two together and set aside.
  5. In a large bowl whisk the eggs, brown sugar and vanilla together.
  6. Pour the lukewarm chocolate and butter mixture into the eggs and stir to combine.
  7. Sift in the flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt and fold gently into the chocolate batter until just combined.
  8. In a small bowl mix the cream cheese, caster sugar and lemon zest together.
  9. Pour the chocolate batter into the greased dish and drop small teaspoonfuls of the cream cheese mixture all over the top. Sprinkle with the pistachios and using a wooden skewer swirl a marbling pattern through the mix to gently encourage the cheesecake into the brownie batter.
  10. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes until the brownie is cooked around the edges, but still a little soft in the middle.
  11. Cool and cut into squares.
