Tuesdays With Dorie – Espresso Cheesecake Brownies

by Jessica on September 1, 2009

Espresso Cheesecake Brownies

Good thing that the word ‘swirled’ isn’t in the title of these brownies… it’s pretty apparent that mine didn’t “swirl”. Instead they “marbled”. Either way, they were pretty good. Probably not ones that I’d make again, though… I continue to have bad luck with Dorie’s brownie batter. I’m guessing it’s just me! 🙂

Thanks to Melissa of Life in a Peanut Shell for this week’s choice – you can find the recipe on her blog and don’t forget to check out the other TWD bakers here!

p.s. ‘Happy Birthday’ to my grandfather, Moe, who passed away in 2000… he would have been 92 this year! I miss you, Moe!!

They look great! We weren’t really crazy about these.

Yours look good– more of the brownie it should be. Mine came out more cheesecakey than brownie-y. Maybe I will skip the espresso next time and it will be more chow-friendly, LOL! Happy Tuesday!

You’re not alone – I never seem to have any luck either with Dorie’s brownies….boo. At least you attempted to swirl yours – I just left mine in layers! LOL! Better luck next week, eh? 🙂

I love the way they look! Sorry the brownies aren’t working out for you

Ahh what a sweet little message at the end to your grandpa, he must have been an important part of your life. Your brownies look great! I loved the frosting the best on mine!

mine were definitley more splotched than swirled, too. oh well…sorry they weren’t a fave, but i’m sure you were able to easily pawn them off! 🙂

Love the close up shots! Awesome!

Mine didn’t swirl very well either, but they sure were good.

I think that the marbled affect is actually very cool looking. They sort of look like dalmatian spots.

They look amazing, even if you didn’t care for the taste so much. And there are always willing volunteers to take brownies and/or cheesecake off your hands!

Way too much chocolate in those brownies! LOL. I liked the layers without chocolate and don’t think I didn’t arrange a little something along those lines on the side for me, ditching all the chocolate bits. Yours look very rich and just the ticket for all you brownie lovers out there.

Eh, marbled swirled. Whatever. We really liked these.


13 Joelen September 2, 2009 at 9:21 am

Great job on these – they look great!


14 Eliana September 2, 2009 at 10:49 am

Even though they aren’t “swirled” they still look delicious.


15 nutmegnanny September 2, 2009 at 12:50 pm

They look delicious!


16 theeclecticconnoisseur September 2, 2009 at 4:51 pm

I liked the brownie part, but I still prefer a fudgier brownie. Swirled or marbled, your’s look great!


17 Heather B September 2, 2009 at 5:42 pm

marbled, swirled it all works for me! They look great!


18 pamela September 2, 2009 at 8:47 pm

They look so good, whether swirled or marbled. A success!


19 Katrina September 2, 2009 at 10:53 pm

Swirled, marbled, speckled, polka dots, squares, doesn’t really matter–love the look of your nice stack of brwonies!


20 Judy September 5, 2009 at 10:56 am

Your brownies may not have swirled, but they each look like a piece of art! Very nice.


21 Margaret September 5, 2009 at 2:42 pm

Yeah, mine were ‘marbled’ too. Yours look amazingly good.


22 Tracey September 8, 2009 at 10:05 pm

I had trouble with the swirling too! At least your layers were nice and tall. My brownie layer was really sad and thin. I’m still not sure what I did wrong. I felt the same way you did about these – good, but probably not something I’d make again.
