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.

Wow that looks so good!

Have you ever had/made a princess cake? Because I got one today for my birthday and I'm really excited for it! Do you know how to make one? I was just wondering, because... well yeah, just curious. But anyway, it looks beautiful with a marzipan rose on top and I'm really looking forward to my party!

hope you have/had a great party :) Princess cakes do look pretty but no one in my house can stand marzipan very much and I can;t eat too much dairy so I doubt making it would ever happen.

I made mini cheesecakes just the other day; only with with raspberry jam on top! It came out very nicely and was rather easy to make. Here is the link for the recipe if you would like to try it. I used gluten free oreos instead of wafers for the bottom and instead of Fromage Blanc I used Crème fraîche.

I am not sure what the measurements would be in metric since it is an American website, but I'm sure you can find a converter.

sounds great, I am always making cheesecakes with strawberry jam on top for my dad, it's his favourite kind.
Aww man that sucks we have nothing like gluten free oreos over here and all the biscuits I have tried for bases so far have not been suitable.

It was my first time making cheesecake so I was really glad they turned out.
That is awful! I thought they made a really nice base for these. If I had some around I would send them to you but my father eats them all very quickly.

Making an Oreo no bake cheesecake was the first thing I ever really made on my own from scrath, it is what got me into baking in the first place, good old cheesecake :)

claremanson Featured By Owner Mar 16, 2013  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
oh yes no bake cheesecake is very easy, the texture is very soft compared to regular cheesecake but if that bothers you gelatin can be used (never used it myself) and if you have another flavour you prefer to banana you can just change it for that, i am forever making different flavours.

Well I'll be trying the banana one for myself for certain. Funnilly enough I'm not a big fan of bananas on their own but I quite like deserts with bananas in them. I'm a big fan of banoffe pie. But my boyfriend hates them. Probably try raspberry or something for him. :D

i hate banana so this I made for my family, I prefer it with raspberries or strawberries, used to love it with oreos but I can't eat them anymore.
