Brownie Lime Cheesecake

I love brownies! I love cheescake! So when I strumbled upon this recipe for a brownie cheescake a while ago, I bookmarked it, then forgot about it....then I found it the other day going to my recipe book. And now it was about time to try it out! I'm a little disappointed though as I overbaked it a little bit, so it wasn't as sticky as I'd hoped it would be. So next time I'll make sure to NOT overbake it...I'll stick to the amount of time suggested  in the recipe....but the cheescake filling seemed too loose, so I kept it longer in the oven...bad choice! Next time, I'll stick to the recipe and I'm convinced I've got a winner brownie cheescake.

Brownie Lime Cheescake
150g butter
2 eggs
1,5 dl sugar (150ml)
1,5 dl crushed digestive cookies (150ml)
1tsp vanilla sugar
1tsp baking powder
1,5 dl flour (150ml)
4tbsp cocoa, unsweetened

2 eggs
Juice from 1 limefruit
1tsp vanilla sugar
0,75dl sugar (75ml)
400g cream cheese

Preheat oven at 175 degres C.

Melt butter. Mix sugar and egg until fluffy. Add vanilla sugar, baking powder, flour, butter, crushed digestive cookies and cocoa, combine. Pour into a greased baking tin. Bake for 15 minutes.

Meanwhile make the filling. Whisk egg, limejuice, vanilla sugar and sugar. Add cream cheese and combine. After 15 minutes, take out the brownie from the oven, and gently pour the cheescake filling into the middle. Bake for another 30 minutes. The cake should be a bit sticky in the middle.

This is my contribution for Melting Moments linky party.
