This calorie bomb combines the very best with the very best: Cheesecake, Brownie and Fresh Seasonal Fruit. I got the recipe from my sister, who got it from the internet. So I’m not entirely sure exactly where this recipe comes from but it is simply too good to withhold from you guys.
I made it for my birthday party last year and even though I cut it in small cupcake-sized pieces it was gone in no time. I only managed to get half a piece myself! So this year I changed the strategy. My advice: make sure you keep a good piece for yourself before serving it out to your guests, and remember going to the gym tomorrow. 😉
Here’s what you need for one pie:
For the Brownie basis:
- 200 gr. dark chocolate (70% is preferred)
- 200 gr. unsalted butter
- 250 gr. sugar
- 4 medium eggs
- 110 gr. flour
For the Cheesecake top layer:
- 400 gr. Mon Chou cheese
- 150 gr. sugar
- 2 medium eggs
- 1 vanilla pod
- 120 – 150 gr. of fresh berries, I used blueberries and raspberries
Ready, set, go:
Preheat your oven to 150 degrees Celcius. Then grease your baking tray with a little butter. This year I used a round baking tray of 26 cm. in diameter. If you want to go for a square tray: last year I used a tray of 25×20 cm.
We start with the brownie layer. Melt the chocolate au bain marie. Mix the butter and sugar in a separate bowl, then add the eggs one by one untill you get a smooth batter. Next: add the flour in small increments and finally add the melted chocolate. Mix well and then pour the batter into the baking tray and spread it evenly over the bottom.
Then we will make the Cheesecake layer. Mix the Mon Chou (you can use other brands of cream cheese) and sugar. Then add the eggs and vanilla. Mix well untill there are no more lumbs in the batter. Spread the cheesecake batter on top of the brownie batter.
Finally spread the fruit on top of the pie.
Now my recipe says 45 minutes of baking time, but in my oven it takes a bit longer. I suggest baking this pie like a normal cheesecake: 1 hour and then turn the oven off and let it cool down for another hour in the oven. You may want to leave the oven slightly open by putting a wooden spoon in the door crack. Good luck!
