Preheat your oven to 180°C (160°C for fan assisted ovens) / Gas Mark 4.

Mix the cream cheese, egg, icing sugar, flour and vanilla essence gently together and then whisk (by hand or electric mixer) for 2-3 minutes until smooth.Then mix the brownie mix, egg, water, oil, expresso powder and the red food colouring together (until the mixture turns a deep red) until well blended.

Spread the mixture evenly into the well-greased rectangular tin. Drop tablespoons of the cream mixture on top of the brownie mix. Using a rounded knife, gently swirl through the cream mixture a few times to create a marble effect.

Bake in the centre of the oven for around 20-25 minutes or until a rounded knife, inserted 5cm (2”) from the edge of the tin comes out almost clean. Allow to cool on your cooling rack before cutting into delicious slices…So decadent!
