Red Velvet Brownies
  • 150 g Unsalted Butter
  • 275 g Caster Sugar
  • 2 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 1 tsp Red Food Colouring
  • 4 Medium Eggs
  • 30 g Cocoa Powder
  • 125 g Plain Flour
  • 1 tsp White Wine Vinegar
Cheesecake Swirl
  • 250 g Full-Fat Cream Cheese
  • 75 g Caster Sugar
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 1 Egg Yolk
  1. Preheat your oven to 180C/160C Fan and line a 9x9" square tin with parchment paper!

  2. Beat together your Butter and Sugar until combined!

  3. Add in the Vanilla and Red Food Colouring - I find it easier to mix these two together to make a thinner paste, and then mix into the Butter/Sugar!

  4. Add in the Eggs one at a time, beating each time. Add in the Cocoa Powder, and Flour, and beat again.

  5. Finally, add in the White Wine Vinegar - and mix. You want to mix this mixture as little as possible!

  6. In a separate bowl, add your Cream Cheese, Sugar and Vanilla and beat till smooth. Add in the Egg Yolk and mix again!

  7. Pour 90% of your Brownie Mixture into the tin - dollop over the cream cheese mix, and then dollop over the last little bit of Brownie Mix

  8. Swirl the mixture together - and then bake in the oven for 28-35 minutes. Mine were in for 30!

  9. Leave to cool in the tin for 20-30 minutes or so, and then cool fully on a wire rack!
