Raspberry Cheesecake Brownies



A couple of weeks ago, one of my friends mentioned on Twitter that she was making raspberry cheesecake brownies. My ears pricked up - I love raspberries, and cheesecake, and brownies. She was kind enough to save one for me, and they really were just as lush as they sounded.

A few days later, another friend lent me the Hummingbird Bakery cookbook, which happens to include this recipe. Of course, I had to try it out for myself.

Raspberry cheesecake brownies

I'm not in the habit of breaching other people's copyright, so I won't copy out the recipe, but I wanted to draw your attention to the concept. Cheesecake with a brownie base. Its genius. Buy the book, or glue together a couple of your favourite recipes, but one way or another - go and make some!

I've never done a baked cheesecake before (having always been more of a fan of the chilled variety) but this was easy to make and really tasty. The recipe has a raspberry cream mixture for the third layer, but I opted for the healthier option of just putting some fresh raspberries on top. I'm planning to make a second batch next month to share with friends, and then I'll do it properly.

This definitely ranks as one of my all-time favourite combinations of flavours. If the words raspberry, cheesecake, and brownie individually make your mouth water, you'll definitely love them together.

Yum!! I have a recipe for a cheesecake brownie as well. They're marbled...you pour the cheesecake on top of the brownie and swirl it all together before baking. They are delish. Always a favorite around the holidays...I get lots of requests for them at family gatherings :)

Yum!!! Good for you on the copyright issue. I've been trying to link to recipes instead of copying. Photos, too. I know I hate when other people steal my work and don't want to be guilty of the same.

Hi Rachel,

Those brownies look wonderful! If I had not already quit being a vegan, those brownies might have persuaded me. :)

Thanks for another great and informative blog.
