Tips

Use Philadelphia cream cheese for the best, creamiest result. Use full-fat dairy products—there’s no place for fat-free in desserts!

Ripe bananas (yellow with a few brown spots) are the best for this cake. In fact, the riper, the better, as these will have more banana flavor. Don’t use unripe or green bananas, they won’t be sweet enough.

Top the cake with crushed cookies, or nuts (pecans, walnuts, or almonds) for extra texture.

Make this Banana Cheesecake into small “bars”. Follow the recipe, but instead of a round springform cake tin, use a rectangular tin, and once the cheesecake has been set, slice it in bars. When slicing the cheesecake into squares, clean the knife between each to ensure clean slices.

Chocolate will be a tasty addition to this recipe. Add chocolate chips to the filling, or drizzle with melted chocolate.

For a creamy, smooth filling, make sure all your filling ingredients are at room temperature.
