I’d never made brownies or cheesecake before, so what better way to knock them off my list of things to do than combine them in one super dish… marbled together. I took the recipe from Smitten Kitchen (bonus talking about childbirth!) but there are a few variations out there. I’d show you them but Nigella’s website doesn’t seem to like me today, and anyway, everyone knows how to google, right?
It’s ridiculously easy to make, doesn’t make too many dishes, even if, like me, you feel the need to use both the whisk attachment on your stick blender AND the cake mixer – but come on, there’s two mixtures! I altered the recipe out of sheer laziness, to no ill-effect, using a 250g tub of cream cheese instead of extracting 225g (which is the conversion of the 8oz or whatever you backwards imperial hicks insist on using) and a whole egg instead of just the yolk (I figured my egg was small enough). I also licked the bowl a fair amount, and my fingers, and the spoon, and the rubber scraper – all up not as much mixture made it to the dish. So be it.
