Easy Cream Cheese Brownies

    1 hour 15 minutes

    Here's a quick, easy recipe that still provides a tasty treat you could pretend is your own special recipe. Be a little daring and trying adding some chocolate chips either into the brownie mix, or on top of the brownie layer before pouring in the cream cheese layer.

    1. Preheat an oven to 150 degrees C. Grease a 20x30cm baking dish.
    2. Use an electric mixer to beat the egg and butter in a large bowl. Beat in the cake mix until all crumbs are moistened. Pat mixture into the prepared baking dish.
    3. Beat the cream cheese, eggs, and icing sugar together in a large bowl. Pour over cake mixture in pan.
    4. Bake in until light golden brown, about 1 hour. Brownies will fully set as they cool. When cooled completely, cut into 4cm squares.

    Cooking test

    The skewer test will not work for these brownies. They will be "gooey" until fully cooled.

    This is a good recipe and fairly easy if you are short on preparation time. It is actually very similar to gooey butter cake, I usually only bake this 35-40 minutes so it maintains some of that gooeiness, and sometimes I will add some chocolate or toffee chips if I want a change. Will make again!  -  28 May 2009  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Simply loved it. I did have to substitute a few ingredients. Instead of using yellow cake mix, I used a box of Angel Food. Also, I used home-grown eggs and used 2 additional ones overall. Finally I decided to add a layer of chocolate on top, so I used 3 ounces of unsweetened baking bars, 3 T Powdered sugar, and half a can of sweetened condensed milk to make a topping in a double boiler. Once Again, this is one of the best desserts I've made in a long time.  -  04 Jun 2009  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Great concept ! do consider calling this a cream cheese cake, instead of brownie  -  25 May 2009  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
