How to Make Raspberry Cheesecake Brownies

Brownies are not hard to make, you mix the dry stuff with the wet stuff and bake.  This recipe adds a simple but amazing step at the very end that makes it so over the top amazing!  To make Raspberry Cheesecake Brownies start with the brownie base.

How to Make Brownies

In a medium bowl, beat the eggs and vanilla together. Once combined, add in the dry ingredients (sugar, cocoa powder, flour, salt, and baking soda).  Pour in the melted butter and mix it until the butter is fully incorporated.  Pour the batter into an 8-inch square baking dish and spread it out evenly in the pan.  Set this aside while you prepare the next step.

How to Make Raspberry Cheesecake Topping

You will need two bowls, one for the cream cheese mixture and one for the raspberry mixture.  In your first bowl, combine cream cheese, sour cream, egg, sugar, flour, and vanilla.  Whip this until it is light and creamy.  In your second bowl, combine the freshly crushed raspberries with raspberry jam.  Now, head back to your brownie batter and add to the top ten dollops of each.  Alternate back and forth between the raspberry mixture and the cream cheese mixture.  This will ensure that your flavors are evenly distributed.  Glide a knife through all of the layers a few times to create a swirled effect.  Pop that in the oven for about 40 minutes.  You know it is done when the center doesn’t “jiggle” when you shake the pan.

    Hi. These looks delicious. After baking, are they supposed to cool for 2-3 hours, or actually refrigerated as stated in step 11? I am confused about oven to refrigerator. Thank you for clarifying.

    • Amanda Rettke says:

      I will try to clarify the recipe! So yes, allow brownies to cool for a bit on the counter and then refrigerate. You do not have to serve them cold, but they should be kept in the refrigerator when not eating them due to the cheesecake.
