Celebration of love

It was my cousin's wedding.

The newly wed

I really enjoy the sacred marriage covenant, when a man and a woman who desire to make their vows. Reminds me of myself and hubby, almost 9 years ago. :) Promised to look after each other and to love until the end of life. I can tell you, I prefer to come to the marriage covenant ceremony than to the marriage feast. Yes, marriage is a celebration of love !

Love and chocolate are inseparable two things. Some people say "show your love with chocolate", and also you can see chocolate everywhere when February comes (because some people say "February is a month of love"). As for myself, I cook something with chocolate only to fulfill my love of chocolate :D (that's one way to show how much I love myself, lol)

(Homemade) Chocolate Cheese Brownies

I never get bored to make brownies, different kind of brownies. Again, I try another version of brownies from Anne Vijaya. You really have to try this one !! I like the way this brownie melt in my mouth, yum ... ! The cheese layer on top of the chocolate layer add a sensational taste to this brownies.

Chocolate cheese brownies

Ingredients :

- 250 gr unsalted butter
- 200 gr dark cooking chocolate, broken up
- 80 gr cocoa powder, sifted
- 65 gr plain flour, sifted
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 250 gr caster sugar
- 4 large eggs

Cream cheese layer :
- 150 gr cream cheese
- 1 eggs
- 2 teaspoons of granulated sugar

How to :

1. Preheat your oven to 180°C/ 350°F. Grease 1 25 cm square baking tin tray with butter then line with greaseproof paper.
2. In a large bowl over some simmering water, melt the butter and the chocolate and mix until smooth.
3. In a separate bowl, mix together the cocoa powder, flour, baking powder and sugar, then add this to the chocolate mixture. Stir together well. Beat the eggs and mix in until you have a silky consistency. Remove 1/2 cup of the brownie batter and set aside.
4. Pour the remainder of your brownie mix into the baking tray. Set aside.
5. In a different bowl, beat cream cheese until smooth, add in egg and sugar, mix well just until creamy and smooth.
6. Spread cream cheese batter evenly over the brownie layer. Spoon small dollops of the reserved brownie batter evenly on top of the cream cheese filling. Then with a table knife or wooden skewer, swirl the two batter without mixing them.

7. Place in the oven around 25 minutes. The brownie should be slightly springy on the outside but still gooey in the middle.
8. Allow to cool in the tray, then carefully transfer to a large chopping board and cut into chunky squares.
