Cold weather makes me feel like baking... This is my favorite brownie recipe, translated from Japanese especially for you. (Who would have thought I'd find a favorite brownie recipe in Japan? But these are seriously good!)
Line a 20 cm square tin with baking paper and preheat oven to 170 degrees Celsius.
For the brownie mixture:
50 grams butter
150 grams chocolate pieces
60 grams (1/4 cup) of sugar
2 eggs
50 grams (1/2 cup) flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
For the cheese mixture:
100 grams cream cheese
30 grams sugar
3 tablespoons cream
1 teaspoon lemon juice
First make the brownie mixture:  Melt the chocolate and butter together over hot water (or microwave for about 50 seconds)
Beat the eggs and sugar in a bowl until thick. Mix in melted chocolate, then add sifted flour and baking power and mix gently until just combined.
Now make the cheese mixture:  Combine softened cream cheese with other ingredients, beating until thoroughly combined.
Pour cheese mixture onto chocolate mixture and swirl around with a spoon to create a marbled pattern. Bake for about 30 minutes at 170 degrees Celsius. Cool in tin and cut into squares or triangles.
