Alexandrina Amy’s Cheesecake Brownies

Alexandrina Autumn Recipes Series

If you are after a quick dessert that is rich, moist and fudgy – but also creamy and chocolatey this batch of brownies is for you. This recipe was kindly given to us at The Cheesery by a Mt Jagged resident in the early 2000’s – it’s called Amy’s Cheesecake Brownies. Once the brownies are served, our next suggestion is to find yourself a glass of muscat from McLaren Vale, and someone to stoke the fire place, all while you sit back and relax.



on the day, you will need 15 minutes preparation time, total cooking time 30 minutes

Calcium Hero of the Dish | Alexandrina Fresh Jersey Ricotta


Alexandrina's Fresh Jersey Ricotta is made with a mixture of whey and Alexandrina’s Full Cream Jersey milk. Ricotta in Italian means ‘re-cooked’, it evolved from the ‘whey’ left from the making of cheese. Fresh Jersey Ricotta is a mass of creamy-white, fine and moist grains, and is firm in texture - not too wet, nor too solid. A small round wheel is made that looks like an upturned basin, with a patterned surface, the result of being drained in a colander then placed in a small tub. Fresh Jersey Ricotta is delicately lemony, mild and milky, with a slightly sweet, eggy flavour and has a fresh aroma. Fresh Jersey Ricotta is full of fresh protein. It is best eaten fresh, suitable for spreading or it can be used as a filling or for baking. 8.7 % minimum fat | available in 500 g tub.

Calcium Hero of the Dish as a garnish | Alexandrina Pure Jersey Cream

Alexandrina's Pure Jersey Cream is the kind of cream where you can stand your spoon straight up in the pot, and it is best served straight onto a homemade dessert. This product is completely free of any preservatives, it is simply a fresh double cream.  51.6 % minimum fat | available in 300 ml tub. Champion Cream Winner of the 2004 Australian Grand Dairy Awards.

Top Tip  |  We suggest using this little Easter egg cake hack to impress your friends over the Easter weekend. By decorating the top of the cake with a cluster of Easter eggs and a scattering of mini eggs, it sure is time to get hoppy with the Easter Bunny on its way!! Remember to serve with Alexandrina's Pure Jersey Cream for that extra bit of indulgence over the long weekend.
