A raspberry cheesecake brownie that brings two delicious desserts together. This recipe is a healthier version as it is baked with coconut flour and no sugar.
I decided to bake this raspberry cheesecake brownie in a circular cake tin rather than the traditional brownie square tin. The ingredients suggested to me that it was going to be a big dessert so may have been a bit too big for my 8-inch square tin. Do they do 10-inch tins? Plus, it looked pretty and very tempting in a circular cake shape.
Raspberries and chocolate are a great flavour combination. So, add in a cheesecake with a brownie and you have dessert gold! Initially I used more chocolate in the brownie mixture but found it to be very sweet, so reduced the amount for this recipe.
For the raspberry cheesecake swirl, I used frozen purely because the fresh ones on the supermarket shelves looked a bit “over ripe”. The defrosted raspberries blended better, but keep your eye on the packet with no added sugar in there.
Raspberry Cheesecake Brownie
After baking this delicious raspberry cheesecake brownie, you ideally want to cool in the tin. Remove from the tin and then keep in the fridge to firm up as the centre may have a slight wobble. Don’t be alarmed but let the cheesecake “set”. I didn’t as I wanted to get the cheesecake out of the house and off to my taste testers. So, I had a slice that was semi-set. It was so delicious that I could not have been trusted with this in the house by myself. I would have eaten most of it all day and some for breakfast the next day!
When two desserts are combined, it can only be a beautiful thing. Which it is with this raspberry cheesecake brownie recipe!
