Recipe For Chocolate Cheesecake Brownies

While watching Paul Hollywood City Bakes last year I decided I would make his chocolate cheesecake brownies. The opportunity was given to me in anticipation of his visit to Cape Town this year.

Head straight on to the recipe for Chocolate Cheesecake Brownies ♥

Step one in making this recipe for Chocolate Cheesecake Brownies was to buy a new brownie pan. The recipe called for a 22x29cm size pan so I headed over to yuppiechef.com and went through the dimensions of each and every pan. The strange thing is that the Paul Hollywood endorsed brownie tin was only 17.5x27cm. As it was the closest to what he called for I went ahead and bought it. The day it arrived I set out everything on the ingredient list I needed other than the butter and the eggs. Dave went to the shops and bought eggs for me and when I was ready to start baking I got the butter out of the fridge. The eggs were placed on the butcher’s block which was behind me during the process of blending and mixing.

The recipe was pinned to the fridge in my scullery. Knowing my ingredients were layed out, I only read through the method. I found grammar errors and wrote the corrections as I went along. Once the mixture was in the oven I turned back towards the butcher’s block and noticed an egg! It was not in the cheescake method. The recipe called for 25 – 30 minutes baking time and they were done after 50 minutes. Not being sure whether this had anything to do with the missing egg I made them again. As we found the 175g extra chocolate too much in terms of richness, I opted for fresh blueberries. This did not work out too well and so I made them again, this time with dried sour cherries. The cheesecake worked out best in the first bake but that might have everything to do with the missing egg.

  7. Hmmmmm, methinks Mary Berry wouldn’t be too happy to read that there are grammatical errors and missing ingredients in a book by Mr Hollywood.
