More About This Recipe
  • Gone are the days when the words “cake batter” evoked thoughts of ooey-gooey, unbaked dessert mix (not that there’s anything wrong with that!). Today, cake batter is a bonafide flavor in its own right. Warm vanilla, decadent cream cheese and sweet sprinkles make up this dessert’s cake-batter essence while fudgy brownies provide that gotta-have-it chocolate factor no dessert should be without. Don’t be surprised if after one bite of cake batter cheesecake brownies, you’re inspired to bake up some of our other brownie treats. They’re just as irresistible and easy—pinky swear.
