Red Velvet Cheesecake Brownies


After a long winter in blog hibernation spent writing a cookbook, I finally have a new recipe! I love brownies, and these rich red velvet ones with a thick layer of cheesecake swirl are a fun twist. It's hard to imagine getting tired of chocolate brownies, but even I like something different occasionally.

I am linking to two very similar versions of this recipe. The one I used calls for a very cool ingredient: red velvet bakery emulsion. It's basically concentrated red velvet flavor and color in one. It's like an extract, but it's also meant to create the signature red velvet color in cakes and in these brownies. It's from my favorite source for baking flavors, LorAnn (I have no relationship with this company and have never gotten anything free from them, just so ya know.).


I really liked how easy it was to make red velvet brownies with the emulsion (and I think it would be amazing for cake), but I get that not everyone wants to bother ordering one little ingredient to make some brownies. Here's a very similar red velvet cheesecake brownie recipe from the blog, Baking Bites, that looks like it would work great and doesn't require special online ordering. But, if you do want to get some red velvet in a bottle, you can order it from LorAnn or from King Arthur (I love KA, and I consider the fact that they stock this stuff to be a great endorsement for it!). Enjoy!

The cheesecake layer is a very interesting and welcome twist to the standard brownies recipe. Thanks for sharing this creative recipe.

I like the idea of red velvet cake emulsion, but I'm so lazy about ordering things through the mail. It would be nice if regular grocery stores sold a bigger, better variety of flavorings and extracts, but I guess they wouldn't make much of a profit.

I love red velvet cheesecakes brownies because their sweet and really yummy! I can't wait to try this at home. I'll just have to eat moderately because my Marietta GA dentist advised not to eat too much sweets so I don't get cavities.

Thesis writing involves several processes which makes the entirety of the experience both exciting and challenging. From choosing a researchable topic that has not been done by other students and eventually narrowing it down to become a uniquely original work to soliciting the help of a research supervisor and in embarking on data collection and writing the paper, these are some of the tasks that almost all undergraduate and graduate students working on a thesis consider as stressful. In spite of the many challenges that students have to put up with, undeniably, the thesis project is an important project-based and challenge-based educational experience that helps in building character and in preparing students for their chosen career. One particular skill that is indispensable and which perhaps is unknowingly cultivated among students as they work on a thesis is the ability to work with a group of superiors.
