Scale

Ingredients

For the Brownie Layer
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup canola oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips, divided
For the Cheesecake Layer
  • 8 ounces reduced-fat cream cheese, at room temperature
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • pinch of salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 large egg, at room temperature
  • 1 can (21 ounces) cherry pie filling

Instructions

  1. Line an 8×8 inch baking pan with aluminum foil and spray with nonstick spray. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together all the dry ingredients. Add the eggs, oil, and vanilla and stir until well incorporated. In a heatproof bowl, melt 1/4 cup of the chocolate chips and incorporate into the batter. Finally, add the remaining cup of the chocolate chips and stir in. Pour the batter into the prepared pan. Set aside.
  3. In another bowl, whisk cream cheese (with a hand mixer) until smooth, about 30 seconds. Add sugar, salt and vanilla and continue whisking until smooth and no lumps remain, about 1-2 minutes.
  4. Pour cream cheese mixture on top of the brownie layer and place in the oven. Bake for 45 minutes or until cheesecake layers appears to be set. Remove pan from the oven and let cool completely on wire racks.
  5. Spoon cherry pie filling evenly over the cheesecake layer and place in the fridge for at least 1 hour or until ready to serve.
