Cream cheese brownies

I have made another batch of fantastic Brownies, these ones have a cream cheese swirl. I have made them before but it was a while ago now, and I needed to use my brownie tin again, well thats what I'm telling myself & you.

1/4 tsp baking powder, sifted
1/3 cup (35g) cocoa, sifted

Method1.  Preheat oven to 180C/350F.
2.  Place chocolate and butter in a saucepan over low heat, and stir until melted and smooth.  Cool slightly
3.  Place melted chocolate mixture in a bowl with the brown sugar and eggs.  Whisk to combine.
4.  Add the flour, baking powder and cocoa and whisk until smooth.
5.  Pour into a lightly greased 22cm tin lined with non-stick paper.  Set aside.
6.  For the cheesecake swirl: place the cream cheese, caster sugar and eggs into the bowl of a food processor and blend until smooth.  Place large spoonfuls of the cheesecake mixture on top of the chocolate mixture and, using a butter knife, swirl to partially combine.
7.  Bake for 50 minutes or until set.  Cool in the tin before slicing.
