Easy Cheese Cake Brownies

If you're looking for a low calorie recipe, this probably isn't it! But I can guarantee that it's delicious! I found this recipe in one of my mother in law's cook books, and I was able to make it with everything that I already had in my pantry. 

Chocolate Cheesecake Brownies

1 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
2 cups  sugar
2/3 cup melted butter
4 eggs
3 tbsp cocoa powder

Mix flour, baking soda, and salt in a bowl. Set aside. Gradually add sugar to eggs, mixing well. Blend in melted butter. Add flour mixture, and then the cocoa. Make sure and mix well. Pour in a greased 9 X 13 inch pan.

8 oz cream cheese
1/3 cup sugar
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla

Mix all ingredients well in a blender. Pour over the brownie mix already in the 9 X 13 pan. Take a knife and make several cuts through the layered cake mix and cheesecake mix to blend for a marbled effect. Bake at 350 degrees for 35-40 minutes.
