Brownie cheesecake

I have always heard about the Rose bakery teashop in the rue des Martyrs, but I've never been there. This weekend, I finally had the opportunity to go and check it out. In fact, it's a British teashop run by a couple, he's French and she's British. The minute I walked in that spiffy bakery, I was amazed by the dazzling selection of salads, quiches, cute squares of vegetable tarts... and excellent baked goodies like chocolate brownies, sponges, carrot cakes, crumbles, scones, shortbread, cupcakes....Then, I was lost!! It was right then when I had to fight the urge to eat everything in sight! There were million of baked goods, however, and only one strike out, which was the Brownie Cheesecake.

Ingredients:
Brownie batter:
1 cup (200g) sugar
250 g bittersweet chocolate (70% cocoa)
250 g unsalted butter
150 g flour
6 eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 pinch of salt
Cheesecake batter:
125 g Ricotta cheese
100 g mascarpone
50 g cream cheese (Philadelphia)
1 egg
2 tbsp sugar
2 tbsp flour
1 tsp vanilla extract

In a bowl, mix together all the ingredients of the cheesecake batter. Set aside.

For the brownie batter, melt the chocolate and the butter in a saucepan over low heat. Let cool a little.
Meanwhile, in another bowl, beat together the eggs, sugar, vanilla until pale. Add the melted chocolate and butter and beat until combined. Add the flour and salt. Stir through.

Grease a 13 x 9 inch pan. Pour in the chocolate batter. Drop spoonfuls of the cream cheese mixture on top of the brownie base. With the tip of a knife swirl the batter around making a marbled effect. Cook 25-30 mn at 350ºF (180ºC). Let cool then cut into squares.
