Disney's brownie cheesecake is a dessert served at Disney's Boardwalk Bakery. It's a brownie bottom cheesecake that you are going to love, and I've got the recipe so that you make it at home!
To say my boss and his family like Disney would be putting things rather lightly. They love themselves some Disney! The business, the movies, and the theme parks. Go on, ask them.
Something they love the most when they visit is the food. I often hear about the clams, salmon, buffets and wonderful meals that they enjoy while staying there. Disney employees pride themselves on their level of customer service. I'm sure we've all seen the behind the scenes shows that showcase how large and insane the food service alone is at Disney parks and resorts. And that's just one tiny part of the whole Disney experience.
So when my the wife of my boss asked me to make her a batch of Disney's brownie cheesecake from a recipe in the Disney Files magazine, I jumped at the opportunity. She gave me a photocopy of the page featuring the brownie cheesecake from the Boardwalk Bakery, one of their favorite shops.
Disney's brownie cheesecake is too good not to share, so here's the recipe:
Now that you've tried this decadent cheesecake atop a layer of soft brownie, I know that you are wondering what you can whip up to really wow them next time. Try one of these out!

That's just the kind of recipe I've been looking for recently! Yay, belated Christmas presents and leftover baking goods in the fridge.... >.>
I love the pictures too, by the way; the black-and-white contrasts are beautiful!
This looks really gorgeous, can't wait for an excuse to make it. I'm sure if I went to Disney all I would do is eat if the food looks like that. Maybe I'd better stay here and sit on my fat arse rather than feed it....

great job recreating one of my favorite desserts from Disney! I have to say your version looks a little better! chocolate and cheesecake what a combination of flavor and textures...sigh

Ooo, that looks tasty. I *think* my husband had this once. It was a couple of years ago so now I'm not sure. Thanks for sharing!
Your finished product looks amazing! Just wondering how the brownie layer holds up after almost one and a half hours in the oven?
I was surprised because I expected it to be dried out and rock solid. It was a little over done for how I like a brownie but it really wasn't that bad. My problem is that the BF didn't let it come to room temp before taste testing one. Everything was rock solid. >.>
This dessert makes me want to sing! 🙂

OMG!! I only have two words to describe this... Sinful. Delicious!!!
These look ah-mazing. I have total photo envy. These shots are totally gorgeous!
Thank you Nessie. You always take beautiful pics - I gotta up my standards to keep up 😉
I love these pictures and this cheesecake on brownie 🙂 Great recipe
I like that the cheesecake has a hint of lemon. Looks de-li-ci-ous!
These look fantastic. Sinfully good. 😉
This is so inviting - the chocolate creaminess just invigorates my soul. Disney never looked so good.
These look fantastic! One small question... when in the brownie preparation do you add the melted butter? I'm assuming it's after the dry ingredients, but before the chocolate chips, but I just wanted to double check, as I didn't see it in the recipe.
Again, these look wonderful and I can't wait to try them myself!
Sorry about missing that step. Yes, you do add the butter before the chocolate chips.
These look fantastic. We must be on the same wavelength right now-I have something very similar coming up! Cheesecake and brownies-um, yeah, always a winner.
Yuuuuum, can I just ask, what's AP flour please, I've never heard of it here in Aus
Hi Nae, ap is just all purpose flour. Thanks!
i just made this and the brownie bottom is INSANELY dry. Very disappointed as a 9x11 pan full of brownie and cheesecake is wasted.
Lilian Meredith says
Do I need to beat the heavy cream to fold in the recipe? Or leave it in liquid form to fold in with sour cream?
I made this recipe and everything looks great! Only part I am concerned about is when is the melted butter added?
Hey hey, thanks for the catch Natalie, you fold the melted butter into the brownie mixture. I will update the recipe! - Cheers 🙂
