Ingredients

CHEESECAKE TOPPING

  • 8 oz cream cheese softened
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 oz chocolate, melted high cocoa solids (70% and above)
  • 1/4 cup erythritol

BROWNIE

  • 1 cup almond flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 cup erythritol
  • 1/2 cup butter unsalted
  • 2 oz chocolate high cocoa solids (70% and above)
  • 1/3 cup cocoa
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 190C/375F degrees.
  • Line a square baking tin (or you could use a circular one...no rule on shapes!) with greaseproof paper.
  • Mix the brownie ingredients first.
  • Mix the dry ingredients in a bowl.
  • Melt the butter and chocolate in a Bain Marie (bowl over simmering water).
  • Remove from the heat and cool for 5 minutes.
  • With a whisk, (electric is better) add the eggs, one at a time. Add the vanilla essence.
  • Add the dry ingredients and mix thoroughly.
  • Spread the mixture in the tin evenly.
  • In a bowl, beat the cream cheese mixture with an electric whisk until smooth.
  • Add the vanilla essence and erythritol and beat well.
  • Add the eggs, one at a time.
  • Put half the mixture in another bowl and add the melted chocolate. Mix well.
  • Place the cheesecake mixture over the brownie base in an uneven distribution of the vanilla and chocolate cheesecake mixture.
  • Swirl the chocolate and vanilla mixture lightly together.
  • Bake in the oven for 30 minutes until slightly firm. Don't worry if the centre is slightly jiggly as the cheesecake part needs to set later.
  • Cool and then chill in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours.
