If you know me well at all, you know that I am not going to just make brownies. Maybe for a very unspecial occasion I would whip some up, but it would take a lot of convincing and I would probably not be very happy about it. Here’s why: baking is not a chore to me. It is not a box on my list of things to do. I make it my own form of art. I love combining this with that and seeing how extravagant and delicious I can make the final product turn out to be. So, making plain chocolate brownies is not something I like doing. Instead, I combine various flavor combinations I know work or I think are worth trying and make them into a fun, unique dessert! I have a blast with it, and I hope you all like my desserts too.
So, that is why you won’t find many ‘typical’ or ‘original’ recipes on my blog – that’s no fun to me! Plus, there’s just about a million brownie recipes on the internet out there and most people use their grandmother’s secret recipe anyways, so why should I even try to compete with that. Instead, I’ve given you a way to amp up your grandmother’s secret brownie recipe by putting a cheesecake layer on top. I know that raspberry and dark chocolate go really well together, but that the chocolate would probably hide the flavor of raspberry, so I liked the idea of contrasting it against the flavor of cheesecake.
Full disclosure, I found this recipe on Pinterest. However, a lot of times you kind of have to know what you’re looking for because there’s just so many recipes on Pinterest. Or, you have to know what sounds good and what will be a miss. So I do still take some ownership of the flavor combination, but I don’t come up with most of these recipes on my own. That’s for the full-time bloggers.
Anyways, I hope you like my decadent Raspberry Cheesecake Brownies. Happy baking!
