1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 tsp baking powder

2 TB unsalted butter
1/4 cup sugar

Preheat oven to 350.


Brush a 9-inch square baking pan with butter.


Line bottom and two sides with a strip of parchment paper, leaving a 2-inch overhang on the two sides.


Butter paper, and set pan aside.


In a small bowl, whisk flour, cocoa, baking powder, and salt;set aside.


Place butter and chocolate in a large heatproof bowl set over (not in) a saucepan of gently simmering water.

Alternately spoon chocolate batter and cream-cheese mixture into pan; with the tip of a paring knife, swirl to marble.
