Banana and Chocolate Cheesecake (+recipe) by claremanson Banana and Chocolate Cheesecake (+recipe) by claremanson
A buttery, crunchy chocolate biscuit base filled with a creamy banana cheesecake topped with freshly sliced banana and lashings of melted chocolate.

Yesterday I bought some tartlet tins, I was going to wait until summer to make a gluten free cheesecake with them when summer fruits are in season (I am not a banana fan but the family loves them) but I could not resist trying them out now so this serves as a trial run for summer.

As with a lot of my recipe the following is a rough guide, I fully encourage you all to adjust quantities and taste test along the way so you find your own unique perfect balance of flavours.

RECIPE
Makes 4
BASE
1 pack of Oreos, bourbons or other such biscuits
50g butter, melted
CHEESECAKE
200g cream cheese (I use Philadelphia) at room temperature
5-6 heaped tablespoons of icing sugar/powdered sugar/confectioners sugar!
1 banana
TOPPING
1 banana
melted chocolate, whipped cream, ice cream or cinnamon.

STEPS
1. Blitz the biscuits in a food processor then mix with melted butter.
2. Pack the biscuit base into the sides of 4 greased tartlet cases then the base.
3. Bake in the oven at 200oC for ten minutes to set the base and stop it crumbling, leave to cool then refrigerate until cold.
4. Mix the icing sugar with the cream cheese.
5. Mash the banana then mix into the cheesecake mix. Have a little taste then add more icing sugar or banana if required. If you want a firm cheesecake then add gelatine according to packet instructions. Add to the cheesecake base.
6. Refrigerate for at least 3 hours for the base to set before gently removing from tart cases.
7. Just before serving, slice up a banana and add some melted chocolate or whatever you fancy topping your cheesecake with then serve immediately.

TIPS:
:bulletgreen: Best served on day of making due to the banana changing colour, making your cheesecake turn grey and unappealing the next day.
:bulletgreen: If you like your cheesecake bases to be thin (i love a good thick crust and even some of them were hard to remove in one piece) you may want to serve your cheesecakes in their tart cases, the thinner the base the more fragile and likely to break they are.
:bulletgreen: Don't like banana? Try raspberries, strawberries, bluberries etc, etc.
:bulletgreen: Generously grease tins if you set on serving out of the tins.
