Ingredients
RED VELVET LAYER
  • 3 1/4 cups flour
  • 2 1/4 cups granulated sugar
  • 3 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 cup vegetable oil
  • 5 tablespoons milk divided
  • 1.5 tablespoons vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon red food coloring
  • 1 teaspoon white vinegar
CHEESECAKE LAYER
  • 1.5 8 oz pkgs cream cheese softened
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 3 tsp vanilla { I used clear vanilla for the frosting}
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and grease a 13 x 9 pan with cooking spray.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together flour, sugar, cocoa powder, salt, and baking powder {set aside}.
  3. In another bowl whisk together eggs, vegetable oil, 2 tablespoons milk, vanilla extract, red food colouring and white vinegar.
  4. Combine the wet ingredients to the dry, until combined.  This batter will be very thick, it's exactly what you want.
  5. Remove 3/4 cup of the batter and place it into a bowl. Into this separate batter, mix the remaining 3 tablespoons of milk and set aside.
  6. Pour the original thick batter into the prepared pan. Using a spatula, smooth the batter to all edges and flatten.
  7. Using a mixer {stand or hand}, beat the cream cheese and sugar until it's fluffy. Then add the eggs and vanilla, and continue beating until the frosting is combined with no lumps.
  8. Pour the cream cheese frosting onto the red velvet layer, and smooth until it reaches all of the edges.
  9. Dollop the remaining brownie batter over the cream cheese layer and use the tip of a knife to drag it through the cheesecake frosting, to create swirls.
  10. Bake for 35 minutes, or until the center is set.
  11. Let the brownies cool completely before cutting and enjoy!
