Original recipe yields 1 8x8-inch pan

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease an 8x8-inch baking pan.
  2. Whisk melted butter with 1 cup sugar in a large mixing bowl; stir cocoa, red food coloring, 1 teaspoon vanilla extract, vinegar, and salt into butter mixture one at a time, mixing well after each addition to avoid lumps. Stir 2 eggs into mixture until thoroughly combined.
  3. Stir flour into cocoa mixture just until combined; set aside 1/4 cup batter. Pour remaining batter into the prepared baking dish.
  4. Beat cream cheese in a bowl using an electric mixer on medium speed until light and fluffy; beat 1/4 cup sugar, 1 egg, and 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract into cream cheese until very well blended and only small lumps remain, 3 to 4 minutes.
  5. Spoon cream cheese mixture in dollops over the batter in pan; gently smooth tops of dollops even with batter using a knife or offset spatula. Do not overmix. Drizzle reserved 1/4 cup of batter over the dollops of cream cheese mixture. Drag a knife or skewer through the batter and cream cheese mixture to create swirls.
  6. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center of the pan comes out clean, 30 to 35 minutes. Cool completely before cutting into bars; store covered in refrigerator.

When I saw this recipe that combines my teenage son's three favorite deserts red velvet, cheesecake and brownies together I knew it would be a hit! My whole family enjoyed this. I decided to bake it in muffin tins but otherwise followed the recipe exactly. Thank you for sharing your recipe miss_whisk, I will be making this again! :)

wonderful and very pretty!! These will take care of your cheesecake and red velvet cravings. Taste best the next day. TIPS: Dont use reduced fat or fat free cream cheese. After you have made the swirls, and before you put in oven, VERY gently tap the pan on the counter to remove some bubbles that may have formed when swirling. ** Remember, oven baking times will vary! The batch I just did today took close to 40 minutes at 345 degrees.

I expected the cream cheese mixture to be thick because of the cook's note, but it was thinner than the batter so I just poured it over the cake batter in the pan. The 1/4 cup of batter was what I had to drop by dollops onto the cream cheese mixture and not drizzle because it was too thick. I baked for it 45 minutes and not 30 - 35 minutes as the recipe states. The edges were getting very brown but the inside was not quite cooked. It tastes okay, but not something I would make again. Very disappointing.
