Disney's Brownie Cheesecake

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:

I made this recipe and everything looks great! Only part I am concerned about is when is the melted butter added?


Wednesday 16th of June 2021

Hey hey, thanks for the catch Natalie, you fold the melted butter into the brownie mixture. I will update the recipe! - Cheers :)

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 just made this and the brownie bottom is INSANELY dry. Very disappointed as a 9x11 pan full of brownie and cheesecake is wasted.

Yuuuuum, can I just ask, what's AP flour please, I've never heard of it here in Aus


Thursday 14th of June 2012

Hi Nae, ap is just all purpose flour. Thanks!

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.
