Cocoa Brownies with Cream Cheese

As I have mentioned many times before, I am not a baker.  I am not fond of baking but once in a while I feel the urge to bake  some  sweets for my  kids and hubby whe love sweets!  I do however rely on   ready-mixes for baking because I don't like too much measuring and all that kind of stuff lol.  Yesterday however, I did not have a  mix so I searched for a doable  recipe to  make  brownies and found two different recipes that interests me.  The recipe was posted by Alton Brown and Bobby Flay.  I thought of combining their ideas into one.
Free farm eggs given by my husband's co-worker. Thank you Randy!
 Here is Alton Brown's Cocoa Brownie recipe
Ingredients

  • Soft butter, for greasing the pan
  • Flour, for dusting the buttered pan
  • 4 large eggs (I used 5  medium size ones)
  • 1 cup sugar, sifted
  • 1 cup brown sugar, sifted
  • 8 ounces melted butter (2 sticks)
  • 1 1/4 cups cocoa, sifted ( I only used 1 cup)
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup flour, sifted
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
Bobby Flay's Cream Cheese MIxture Recipe

  • P package cream cheese
  • 1 egg
  • 1/3 cup sugar
Direction: Using an electric mixer, beat together the cream cheese, egg and sugar until smooth.
 Directions:

  • Preheat the oven to 300 degrees F. Butter and flour an 8-inch square pan.
  • In a mixer fitted with a whisk attachment, beat the eggs at medium speed until fluffy and light yellow. Add both sugars. Add remaining ingredients, and mix to combine.
  • Pour the batter into a greased and floured 8-inch square pan  and dollop the cream cheese mixture on top of the brownie batter. Swirl together using a knife or skewer and bake for 45 minutes. 
  • Check for doneness with the tried-and-true toothpick method: a toothpick inserted into the center of the pan should come out clean. When it's done, remove to a rack to cool. Resist the temptation to cut into it until it's mostly cool.

Okay, I admit, these brownies tasted so good but I am warning  you, there is too much suggar in this!
Bobby  Flay called his recipe Cheesecake brownies.  He  required for one box of ready mix brownie.  I thought why not have fun with these two  recipes of  famous chefs and combined it in one, so hence the Cocoa Brownies with Cream Cheese.
