How about now?

My extended family came into town last night–just in time to give these cream cheese brownies a try. (5 members of my family have to eat gluten free. The rest do not.) We had a little taste taste, and not only were these a hit with the gluten free crowd, but the rest of the family couldn’t stop sneaking bites either! I call that a major hit.

Orange zest added to the cream cheese layer gives these brownies just the right touch of Christmas flavor.  (Some of my favorite Christmas treats are chocolate oranges and raspberry sticks.)

Double Chocolate Orange Cream Cheese Brownies {Gluten Free}

Prep Time: 15 min

Baking Time: 48-52 min

Makes 16 2″ x 2″ brownies, but you’ll probably want to cut them bigger!

Difficulty Level–Easy!

Ingredients

Brownie layer:

  • 1 box Krusteaz Gluten Free Double Chocolate Brownie Mix
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 egg

Orange Cream Cheese layer

  • 4 oz cream cheese
  • 1 egg white
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 tsp gluten free flour blend (Pick your favorite.  I use this one.)
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • zest from one medium orange

Steps for swirling the layers together in gluten free cream cheese brownies

Directions:

  1. Lightly grease your 8″ x 8″ baking dish, and preheat oven to 325°.
  2. Prepare brownies according to package directions, and pour into baking dish.  Set aside.
  3. Using an electric mixer, beat cream cheese orange zest, and sugar until blended.
  4. Add egg white, flour and vanilla, and blend until smooth.
  5. Carefully pour cream cheese mixture over the brownies and smooth to cover the entire top.
  6. Run a knife through the layers to marble.  You can make a pretty design, or just swirl the knife around.
  7. Bake 48-52 minutes.  (Add 5 minutes to bake time if using a glass dish.)

Do not over bake.  Brownies may appear underbaked, but will cool to doneness.  Cool completely in the pan before cutting.

Now, you could just eat these brownies as is.  They’re pretty amazing already. But-why stop at amazing?  Add fresh raspberry sauce to really knock the flavor out of the park!

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups fresh or frozen raspberries (slightly thaw if frozen)
  • 2 T sugar
  • 1/2 T lemon juice
  • fresh raspberries for garnish (optional)

Directions:

  1. In high speed blender, layer berries, sugar and lemon juice and blend until smooth.  (For blendtec, use the dressing button.)
  2. Pour sauce through a fine mesh sieve and discard the seeds.  (If you want to skip this step, you can use the soup button on the blender.  It will pulverize the seeds, but it will also cook the sauce. That will change the flavor–making it more of a syrup than a sauce.)
  3. Drizzle sauce over brownies and garnish with fresh raspberries to serve.

Enjoy!

  13. I would love to try these mixes. And I really want to try the raspberry sauce. I love raspberrry anything.

  14. I tried the brownie mix the other day and it was really good. It’d be fun to try this recipe using the mix as well. The muffins would be great for something to have ready to be able to eat whenever I’m hungry!

  15. I LOVE the Krusteaz gluten free mixes. I’m really excited to try the blueberry muffins though – those sound delicious.

    • Do you have a gluten free eater at your house, Katie? I didn’t realize you ate gluten free.

      • Yep! My son is on a diet called low FODMAP, and it’s wheat free. Our doctor recently put him on it, and it has really helped. It’s helped a lot of my health problems, too, so I guess we’ll be gluten free for the long run at this point. I’m glad there’s so many great recipes and companies out there to cater to it, though!

        • Going gluten free was pretty emotional for me at first. It made me sad that my daughter wouldn’t be able to eat her favorite things any more. But, once we started, it wasn’t so bad. We found a bread recipe we like, we found lots of great products, and we found a way to make pretty much anything my daughter wants. (Grandma is a great experimental gluten free cook.) I’m glad we’re doing it now and now five years ago when there was nothing! Good luck with the new diet.
