Cheesecake Brownies and a Cheesecake Brownie Sundae
The hubby's birthday was this past Thursday, and he has a very big sweet tooth. Unfortunately, since my van broke down, I haven't been able to shop for him. I scrounged around the kitchen and found a brownie box mix. I had a few eggs and some cream cheese and voila!
I mixed the brownies up like the package said using an extra egg for the 'cake-like' texture. I poured it in a greased and floured 10 inch cake pan and mixed up the cheesecake layer...
1 8oz cream cheese, room temp
1/3 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla
Mix together with a mixer until combined. Do not over mix. Pour over the brownie mix. Most people swirl the mix for that pretty look, but I think the tastes mix and kind of weaken the cheesecake flavor. Bake for 45-55 minutes or until set and the sides start to pull away from the pan. Cool completely and chill for a couple of hours.
For the sundae:
Slice a wedge and add vanilla ice cream and homemade chocolate syrup!
