Espresso Cheesecake Brownies

These lovely little brownies have a layer of brownie, a layer of cheesecake (that's been given a flavor boost with a little espresso) and a lovely sour cream topping. The cream cheese layer is supposed to have some swirls of brownie, but mine were more like clumps. No matter--they were lovely and delicious.


  1. OOOOOOO that sounds delicious!

    Are the brownie and cheesecake layers separate? It all looks like one layer in the picture...

  2. The bottom layer is the brownie layer, then there's the espresso cream cheese, and then you swirl in a little more of the brownie batter. After they're baked, the sour cream topping goes on. I never drink coffee, but Dorie Greenspan seems to know how to add just enough espresso powder to intensify the flavor--these were definitely yummy.
