Marbled Cream Cheese Brownies
Cook time
Total time
Serves: 16
Brownie layer:
  • 1 package (15 ounces) Cake Mix Doctor Bebe's Brownie mix
  • 1 stick (1/2 cup) butter, melted
  • 2 large eggs
Cream cheese layer:
  • 4 ounces cream cheese, at room temperature
  • 2 tablespoons butter, at room temperature
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  1. Place a rack in the center of the oven, and preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease and flour an 8-inch square baking pan.
  2. Stir together the brownie mix, melted butter and eggs in a large bowl until well combined, about 50 strokes with a wooden spoon. Pour the batter into the pan, and smooth the top. Set aside.
  3. Place the cream cheese, butter, sugar, flour, egg, and vanilla in a medium bowl, and blend with an electric mixer on low until smooth, 1 minute. Dollop this cream cheese batter by the spoonful over the brownie batter, and swirl with a fork to combine the two batters in a marbled pattern. Place the pan in the oven.
  4. Bake the brownies until they are just firm to the touch in the center, about 38 to 42 minutes. Let cool 30 minutes before slicing. For easiest slicing, chill first.
