For the cheesecake swirl

  • 8 oz cream cheese softened
  • 1/4 cup lingonberry jam
  • 1 TB sugar
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract

For the brownies

  • 2/3 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 4 oz bittersweet or semisweet chocolate
  • 2 oz unsweetened chocolate
  • 8 TB unsalted butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs


For the cheesecake swirl

  1. Put swirl ingredients in a bowl. Stir until smooth. Set aside.

For the brownies

  1. Place oven rack in lower third of oven. Preheat oven to 325. Line an 8 inch square pan with parchment paper or foil.
  2. Place chocolate and butter together in a microwaveable bowl. Microwave in 30 second increments, stirring in between, until mixture is completely smooth.
  3. In a large bowl, whisk together the chocolate and butter mixture with the sugar and vanilla.
  4. Whisk in eggs one at a time, incorporating completely.
  5. Add flour, baking powder, and salt. Stir together until just combined.

Putting It Together

  1. Pour half the brownie batter into the pan and smooth out evenly all the way to the edges.
  2. Drop just over half cheesecake batter, by spoonfuls, onto the first layer of brownie batter. Smooth out evenly.
  3. Pour the other half of the brownie batter into the pan. Smooth out evenly.
  4. Drop the remainder of cheesecake batter, by spoonfuls, on top of the second layer of brownie batter. Instead of smoothing out, use a knife to swirl the batters together.
  5. Bake for approximately 50 minutes. Avoid overbaking; remove from oven when a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out with moist crumbs but not wet with batter. Let cool completely before serving.
