Stolen Bicycle Cheesecake Brownies

Living in London, you kind of expect to have your bicycle stolen. But that doesn’t mean its not still painful.

I LOVED my bike- it was beautiful, an old (vintage!), green Hercules Balmoral ladies bike. Okay okay, so the brakes weren’t great and the gears were a bit funky and it was very hard to peddle (getting over Waterloo Bridge every morning really was a killer.)

I also loved not paying for the bus.


It was chained up on a quiet, residential road in Camden, the kind of road where no crime ever happens and everyone rides bikes. Or so it would seem. But someone cut the lock, and just like that, its gone.


I need something gooey and chocolate to cheer me up. Something like these delicious cheesecake brownies. (They are SO good- the gooiest brownies you’ve ever seen on the bottom, with a cheesecakey, crispy drizzle on top.)

Cheesecake Brownies

recipe taken from here

85g butter

4 ounces chocolate

130g sugar

2 large eggs

70g flour

1 tablespoon cocoa powder

pinch of salt

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

80g chocolate chips


Melt butter and sugar in a bowl over a saucepan of simmering water. Remove from the heat, then beat in the sugar and eggs.

Mix in the flour and cocoa powder, then vanilla and chocolate chips.

Spread evenly in a baking tray lined with greaseproof paper. Then make the cheesecake topping.

200g cream cheese

1 large egg yolk

75g icing sugar

splash of vanilla extract

Beat cream cheese, yolk, sugar and vanilla until smooth. Distribute it in dollops around the brownies, then, using a dull knife, spread it around in a marble effect.

Bake in 180 degree oven for 10- 15 minutes- but keep an eye on them! You want them to be really gooey!
