Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease an 8x8 baking dish with 1 teaspoon butter.
  2. Whisk 1 cup sugar and melted butter together in a bowl. Add vanilla, cocoa powder, salt, food coloring, vinegar, and eggs to sugar mixture, blending well after each addition.
  3. Stir flour into sugar mixture until batter is just combined. Pour batter into prepared baking dish, reserving 1/3 cup batter for cream cheese layer.
  4. Blend cream cheese, 1/4 cup sugar, egg, and vanilla extract together in a bowl. Spread cream cheese mixture over brownie batter in the prepared baking dish. Pour reserved 1/3 cup brownie batter in 2 rows over cream cheese layer. Pull a knife through the batter rows into cream cheese layer to form swirls.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, 30 to 35 minutes. Cool completely before slicing.

First of all, these brownies are more like a red velvet/cheesecake swirl brownie than a brownie with cream cheese FROSTING. Anyway, I think they're pretty good, but they aren't perfect. They were done at 30 minutes, and they make a lovely presentation. The cheesecake-style topping is also delicious, and I love the suggestion to reserve a bit of the red velvet batter to make swirling a little bit easier and more successful. However, I think the red velvet layer could use a bit of work...the texture came out a bit "gummy" to me, and I think it could use a little more flavor as well. Otherwise, it's a pretty good recipe...thanks!

These were good and everyone seemed to like them. However, I think perhaps they might be missing something. I haven't quite figured out what that might be yet, but I am working on it. They seemed a touch dry also, but I would really like to experiment a bit and try to make them again.
