Cream Cheese Brownies

This must be our favorite brownie recipe ever. It has the density of chocolate and the lightness of cream cheese. AND, it makes a fabulous presentation.

Chocolate Mixture

  • 1 package sweet chocolate
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup unsifted flour
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 cup chopped nuts
  • 1/4 teaspoon almond extract

Cream Cheese Layer

  • 1 (3 ounce) package cream cheese
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla


Preheat oven to 350°F. Butter a 9 square inch baking pan.

Melt butter and chocolate in top of double boiler. When melted, stir to mix and set aside to cool.

Beat eggs until light and fluffy. Add sugar and beat until thickened.

Mix together baking powder, salt, and unsifted flour. Stir into melted chocolate mixture. Add vanilla, nuts, and almond extract.

Cream cheese: Cream together cream cheese and butter. Stir in sugar and cream well. Add egg, flour and vanilla

Using a spatula, spread half chocolate mixture in prepared buttered pan. Spread cream cheese mixture evenly on top of chocolate mixture. Finish with layer of remaining chocolate mixture on top.

Bake in preheated 350° F oven until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, about 25 to 35 minutes.
