Method

Banana Cheesecake is a community recipe submitted by munichgirl and has not been tested by Nigella.com so we are not able to answer questions regarding this recipe.

  • Preheat the oven on 180°C.
  • Make the crust by crushing the biscuits and mixing them with the butter.
  • Put it in a 20cm springform lined with baking parchment. and bake for about 10 minutes. Lower the oven temperature on 140°C.
  • Now, proceed with the filling. Mush half of the bananas with two tablespoons of lemon juice, then beat in the other ingredients until well combined.
  • Pour the filling onto the biscuit base and bake for an hour. Turn off the oven and leave the cake in for another hour.
  • Take it out and let it cool completely until you refrigerate it.
  • When you're about to serve it, slice the remaining bananas (but perhaps two will be enough) into slices and pour the remaining lemon juice onto them, making sure they're covered in it or they'll brown, then "artistically" cover the cheesecake with the slices. Enjoy!
