Black Bottom Brownies

Hello Everyone,

Here is the recipe I made for my parent’s the other day. It is fantastic!!! It’s from my favorite blogger and friend Mary, from Apron Strings and Wedding Rings. I sent home some the brownies with my parents and Ray ate pretty much the rest of it!

Black Bottom Brownies:

1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour

1 cup granulated sugar

1/4 cup cocoa powder

1 tsp. baking soda

1/2 tsp. salt

1 cup water

1/3 cup vegetable oil

1 tbsp. white vinegar

1 tsp. vanilla


1 tsp. vanilla

1 ( 8oz.) package cream cheese, softened

1 large egg

1/3 cup granulated sugar

1/8 tsp. salt

1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

Grease a 9×13-inch baking dish. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a mixing bowl mix together the flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt. In another bowl mix together the water, vegetable oil, vinegar, and vanilla. Slowly pour wet mixture into dry mixture, and mix just until moistened. Scraping down bowl as needed. Pour into prepared baking pan. In another bowl beat together the vanilla, cream cheese, egg, sugar, and salt. Fold in the chocolate chips. Drop filling batter onto chocolate mixture, and using a knife swirl the 2 batters together, for a marbled look. Bake for 20-25 minutes, or just until center is set. These brownies are very moist, so the toothpick method may not work. Cool on wire rack before serving. We served this with some vanilla bean ice cream, and it was fantastic!! Enjoy! 🙂

Until next time…
