If you choose the bain-marie method place the chocolate and the butter into a heatproof bowl.
Pour water into a pot, about halfway. The bowl with chocolate and butter shouldn’t touch the water.
Place the bowl on top of the pot.
Place the pot on the stove, over medium heat and cook, stirring occasionally, until the chocolate and the butter are completely melted.
Allow to cool and incorporate the sugar, the eggs and the flour.
To prepare the cheesecake layer, mix the cream cheese and the sugar until creamy then add the egg and the vanilla essence.
You may also add nuts, raisins or chocolate chips.
Pour the brownie batter into the baking pan, spread the cream cheese mixture over the brownie layer and use a knife or a fork to swirl brownie batter and cheesecake together.
Allow the cheesecake brownies to cool completely before cutting. For a nice and clean cut you should refrigerate the brownies for a few hours.
