Memorable Cream Cheese Brownies


It was Friday, July 10 2020, the day of Election here in Singapore. This date is so memorable to me not because of election. On this day, I tripped on the stairs while going to work, it was about 4 steps,yeah..We are all scared of covid right ? in my case I prefer the stairs rather than lift or escalator. I thought that these two are safer and you wont get exposed to lots of people going to and getting out from work. I tripped so for the rest of the days, I was in total pain and it was horrible. I experienced how it was to live using wheelchair and oh my goodness...need I say more? 😨 But I am getting better now and my foot is on the road to recovery, thank you Oh God and to my family who really took care of me.🙏

Talking of memorable event, well I have one memorable brownies. I think you can guess why, I made them the day before the accident and on that morning of July 10, I brought some for my co-workers and I was so excited for them to taste ...until...ouch....😂 Anyway the recipe was taken again form the old Reader's Digest collection of baked goodies circa 2000. I will say it again, I am so lucky to have found this book for 10 dollars only..

Ingredients:
1 3/4 cups cream cheese, softened
1 1/4 cup soft brown sugar
1/4 cup milk
1 cup butter softened
2/3 cup hot coffee
4 large eggs
2 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 cup plain flour
1 cup chopped pecans or any nuts

Direction:
In a small bowl, beat cream cheese, 1/2 cup sugar and milk until fluffy. Set Aside. 
In a large bowl, cream butter, hot coffee and remaining sugar until light and fluffy. 
Beat in eggs and vanilla. Stir in flour and 1/2 cup of nuts.
Pour half of the batter into a greased pan. Spread with cream cheese mixture. 
Top with the remaining batter. Sprinkle the remaining 1/2 cup of nuts and lightly press. 
Cut through butter with a knife to swirl cream cheese.
Bake at 180 for 35-40 minutes or until a skewer inserted near the center comes out clean. 
Cool in baking pan on a wire rack for 10-15 minutes. 
Then put inside the fridge for at least 6 hours or overnight. 
Cut, serve and enjoy!

These cream cheese brownies are the best. Although it gives me a painful memory because of my minor injury, in the end I will cherish the delight of making them. I nearly don't have photos 😛. good thing I asked my children to save some for me..actually these brownies were reserved already..LOL!

Where's the party?
