Marbled Cheesecake Brownies a Family Favorite

Marbled Brownies are my favorite.  You combine the chocolate flavor of a brownie and add in a cheesecake-like layer in there, and you have marbled brownies.  This recipe for marbled brownies is my Mom’s recipe, and while there are instructions for a frosting on here, I have never made it.  I think these brownies are rich, moist, and well quite heavenly on their own.  Source Judy Eynard.

  • 6 ounces cream cheese
  • 5 tablespoons butter
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 18 ounces brownie mix


  • 3 tablespoons butter melted
  • 2 tablespoons cocoa
  • 1 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  While the oven is preheating soften the cream cheese and butter by warming them in the microwave for a few seconds.  Beat together the cream cheese, butter, and sugar until light and fluffy.  Mix in the eggs, flour, and vanilla into the butter mixture until smooth and set aside. Prepare brownies according to package directions, fix for cake-like brownies if this is available.  
  • Prepare a 13X9 pan with non-stick cooking spray. Pour half of the brownie mix into the pan. Pour the cream cheese mixture over the brownie mix, and then pour the remaining half of the brownie mix on top. Swirl the cream cheese layer into the brownie layer. Bake for approximately 35-40 minutes; it is best to err on the side of the brownies to be a little underdone, as they are nice and gooey then. Frosting (Optional) Combine all ingredients into a bowl and mix well. When you start to mix frosting together, it may seem a little dry, it will blend together.

    I would like a CpoyKat recipe of Baker’s Square Marbled Rye Bread. The crust reminds me of a pretzel bread crust! Yummm!
