Meeting My Fans

Well this is a little tongue in cheek but I have met up with some of my followers/commenters and this past Sunday I met up with a convert sister who homeschools and just recently had a baby boy. It was nice to meet her and her family and I know she is so busy now with 4 little kids and won't really have time to visit my blog. I've also met some of my readers at RIS and other places like bazaars and MuslimFest. Insha Allah I'll meet even more of you in the future. If any of you are getting together, why not try and make these cheesecake brownies I made to bring to my new friends' baby's aqiqah.

 Cheesecake Brownies

100g dark chocolate (4 pieces about)
125g butter
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup plain flour
pinch of salt
To make:
Melt the chocolate and margarine either in a microwave or in a ceramic bowl over a pan of simmering water.
When melted allow to cool slightly then add the sugar, eggs and vanilla. Beat well.
Fold in the flour.
Turn out into a greased baking tin.
Cheesecake layer with 250 grams Philadelphia cheese, 1 egg and 1/3 cup sugar beaten together well and then swirled over the top of the brownie.

Bake at 325 degrees for about 40 minutes until set and a knife comes out reasonably clean.

This is enough for a small family. If your family is big or you expect guests then double it. I would even consider quadrupling it. Nothing lasts for long in this house. I would also add condensed milk to the cheesecake topping myself if I make it next time. These brownies taste better the next day. Enjoy!


  1. Asalaamu Alaikum

    Was so nice to meet you Huda and your daughter at RIS. Man these speakers better stop making me cry! Anyone else? Nice to see the woman who converted and dare to ask Malcolm X's daughter the question that I was dying to ask....why aren't converts being accepted into the muslim community...she said she was Irish..I am part Irish too...if I can find her I will and try to cheer her up...insha Allah someone heard her plea and of course Allah did but some muslims and will embrace her. I love that they are talking about brotherhood/sisterhood and that they told us to hug one another. I heard the tickets were sold out this year in spite of Amr Khaled not being able to make it. Nice to see the Malaysians/Singaporeans too.

  2. Salaams. Thanks for the recipe. My wife is always on the lookout for new cheesecake recipes and I will pass this along to her.

  3. Assalaam wa aleikum,
    thanks so much for coming by my house. I've been meaning to call or write but I've been quite occupied :)
    It was so nice to meet you and your family. Looking forward to keep in touch,
    May Allah bless you and your family

  4. Assalaamu aleikum
    It was lovely to meet you and your daughters too, I'm so glad it wasn't the ships in the night thing this time! We're still recovering, we love RIS but it gets pretty overwhelming at times :) Hope to see you again before too long in sha Allah.

  5. Wa Alaikum Salaam Mezba,

    I just love your lego blog, masha Allah. Tell your wife to add the condensed milk. It really improves the taste, dh agrees with me :)
