  2. Place all dry ingredients in a large bowl

  3. In a separate bowl, lightly whisk the eggs

  4. Mix the dry ingredients, melted chocolate and butter, and eggs. Stir until just combined.

  5. Pour the mixture into the baking tin

  6. Gently pour the blackcurrant-cream-cheese mix over the base and use a spoon to swirl carefully.
