To make the brownie sponge I started by melting 170g butter.
In a bowl I whisked up 200g caster sugar, 2 eggs and 1 tsp vanilla extract. Then I whisked in the melted butter.
I added in 200g plain flour, 30g cocoa powder, 1/2 tsp salt and 1 tsp baking powder.
Then I folded in 100g chopped white chocolate and 110g cherries, pitted and chopped in half.
For the cheesecake top I whisked up 1 egg, 1 tsp vanilla extract, 120g full fat cream cheese, 40g butter and 30g caster sugar.
I poured the brownie mix into a lined tray, then poured over the cheesecake top.
I added blobs of a jar of cherry jam all over the top, then swirled them around with the cheesecake mixture using a knife. I used a whole jar of Tesco’s Finest Morello Cherry Jam.
I baked it on 200C/180C Fan/350F/Gas Mark 4 for 25 minutes.
After letting the brownies cool fully, I refrigerated them for a couple of hours before slicing into squares and tucking in!
The brownies were so gooey and delicious! These are pure cherry heaven with both the sweet jam on top and juicy fresh cherries inside. They got eaten up pretty fast, I even caught my boyfriend eating one for breakfast!
