Banoffee Cheesecake

Banoffee Cheesecake

This is a classic dessert of mine. Nice and light, and not too sweet as I made it with light brown sugar. Everything really goes together well – it really works…the crunchy base, the sweet caramel layer and a creamy vanilla cream topping. This banoffee cheesecake definitely tastes like a real banoffee, but better. (well, I have to say that as I made it!) I am sure you will love it too – let me know when you taste it.

I think I am yet to meet anyone who does not like Banoffee Cheesecake. My husband loves banoffee pie but I did not have enough bananas on one occasion and so I came up with this recipe – I was not aware that people actually make Banoffee Cheesecake, I thought it was my invention until I did my blog! ‘There is always someone out their cleverer then you’ my Dad used to say.

This delicious dessert should be made ahead of time and kept chilled until your guests have arrived. You can also decorate it on the day if you wish, make it the best-looking dish in the world! It has a delicious layer of thick caramel on a biscuit base with vanilla, with bananas, cream and chocolate. I did it all for you just as long you don’t tell them down at the gym!

Let’s make this wonderful dessert:

Instructions
The the Base:
  1. In a food processor, place the biscuits and the butter and blitz until almost smooth. Then add vanilla extract and then blitz again until smooth.
  2. Combine the biscuits and melted butter and press into the base of a 8" loose-bottomed tin.
  3. Put in the fridge for 2hrs
  4. Slice one banana then arrange around the side of the tin.
For the Caramel:
  1. In the meantime, in a non-stick pan on a low heat, add the butter and the sugar and simmer until all the butter has melted.
  2. Now add the evaporated milk and bring to the boil. Keep stirring (or it will stick to the bottom) for at least 3 mins.
  3. Now melt the gelatine or aga aga with hot water until fully melted, then pour into the caramel and keep whisking for 2 mins then turn the heat off.
To assemble the cheesecake:
  1. Remove the base from the fridge and pour over the caramel sauce. As soon as it has cooled down, put back into the fridge to set.
  2. After 3hrs the cheesecake should be set. Whisk the cream with the sugar and vanilla, then spread on top of the caramel and let it set for a further 30 mins in the fridge.
  3. Remove from the fridge and decorate with chocolate buttons, and dust with cocoa powder. Yummy!
Recipe Notes

I used brown sugar so it's not too sweet.

Also, as I prefer sweeter cream, I added sugar and vanilla - this is not necessary if you like it as it is.

    How lovely it is to find a really nice looking dessert item that is different and does not start out with having to whip softened cream cheese or sift all sorts of things into flour. Bless you Sally! I have to bring something to donate for the yearly Altar Guild Baked Goods Auction after Evensong this coming Sunday. I am definitely going to make this. Last year I made several walnut honeycakes and all of them sold very well but were not something that made everyone bid fiercely.. However, this is going to be spectacular and I am hoping it will fetch the highest bid price. Now I am definitely excited about the Bake Sale!

    • Wow Merryn how lovely to hear from someone like you. I am very much for charity, that is lovely what you are doing, rising money to help people. I truly hope you will rise lots of money for the cheesecake. Please let me know how you get on if you can. Many thanks
