Cheesy Chocolaty Goodness

Today's brownies are a bit of a difference for me because they don't have any fruit or nuts in them. They've turned out really well and would make a fabulous dessert, both hot and cold. Next time I'll give them a bit more of a swirl though.
The recipe is a bit bigger than my usual ones so needs more cooking time but the brownies are nice and high.

Chocolate Cheesecake Brownies
150g butter, chopped
250g dark chocolate
3 eggs
3/4 cup caster sugar
1 1/2 cups plain flour
1/4 cup sour cream
250g cream cheese, at room temperature
1 tsp vanilla essence

20 cm square cake pan lined with baking paper                                          Oven @ 180c

Melt the butter and chocolate in a saucepan over low heat. Allow to cool slightly.
Mix in two of the eggs and 1/2 a cup of the sugar. Stir in the flour and sour cream and stir until well combined.

Beat the cream cheese, vanilla, egg and remaining sugar in a bowl until smooth.

Spoon chocolate and cream cheese mixtures alternately into the pan. Swirl with a knife to create a marble effect. Bake for 45 minutes. Stand for one hour before slicing.
