    125g Salted Butter

    2 x Medium Free Range Eggs

    200g Granulated Sugar

    30g Cocoa Powder

    20ml Red Food Colouring

    5ml White Wine Vinegar

    100g Plain Flour


    250g Cream Cheese

    50g Caster Sugar

    1 x Medium Free Range Egg

    1 tsp Vanilla Extract

    1 x 28cm x 18cm brownie pan


    Pre-heat the oven to 145°C/Gas Mark 1.

    Line the base of the cake tin with some non-stick baking parchment and rub the sides with a little sunflower oil.

    Melt the butter in a small saucepan and then add the granulated sugar and stir to combine.

    Transfer the butter mixture to a mixing bowl and whisk in 2 of the eggs.

    Add the cocoa powder, food colouring and vinegar, then whisk well.

    Sieve the flour, gently fold into the mix then set aside whilst you prepare the topping.

    Combine the cream cheese, caster sugar, egg and vanilla in a mixing bowl and whisk until smooth.

    Pour ⅔ of the brownie mix into the prepared cake tin.

    Spoon dots of the cream cheese topping over the top of the brownie, then spoon dots of the remaining brownie mix over the top of the cream cheese topping.

    Use a toothpick or skewer to gently marble the brownie mix and cream cheese topping.

    Bake in the oven for 25-30 minutes, allow to cool completely, then cut into 9 squares.
