These brownies need to be baked so a knife inserted comes out clean.

The brownies will be moist. Preparation time is approximately 30-45 minutes.

1/2 teaspoon Salt
SECOND BATTER; --------------------
6 ounce Cream cheese
1/2 cup Sugar
2 large Eggs
2 tablespoon Flour

The taste is great but found it comes out a bit too fluffy and cakey to be called a brownie - maybe because of the baking powder? Also I only use 1 cup for the chocolate mixture now as 1 and a half way too sweet. Otherwise they're lovely and get a lot of compliments ;) will be making again

Think I burnt mine slightly as fan oven was too hot and had hard time transposing stuff to British imperial measurements from the cups ect. However, even after following the recipe word for word, it still turned out the same as the other reviews!

Followed recipe exactly, and it did not come out right. Like many others said, it did not layer properly. The issue was the brownie batter was extremely thick, almost a paste, while the cream cheese batter was practically a soup. Ended up just folding cream cheese mixture into the brownie batter. Cooked for 45 min and got a deliciously creamy brownie, but not the layered brownie I was looking for. Next time I will try adding more cream cheese and flour to thicken it a bit. Will also try something to to get the brownie batter a little less thick.

I tried to do it so that I poured the first half, then the cream cheese filling, then poured it again and it did not turn out. It's pretty much a brownie with cream cheese on top. Also, I would add way more cream cheese because I can't even taste it and I loveee cream cheese. Next time I'm going to try putting the cream cheese mix in first, then the brownie and 12oz of cream cheese.

These are ok ... Everyone who has raving reviews tweaked the original recipe somehow. When I bake something the very first time I always follow the recipe then I make my substitutions. On that note, following the recipe exactly when I layered the batters, the brownie batter sunk to the bottom. It didn't marble like it should have, it all mixed together. The final result had some marbling but not like the pictures. It's a lot dryer than other brownies I have made. Definitely won't be making this again. You want to make delicious brownies, make the Reese peanut butter cup ones. Those are moist and delicious!

Yumm! I increased the cream cheese to 8 ounces and the chocolate to 12 ounces. Also increased the cook time to 45 min. Very good.
