  • 10 digestive biscuit, crushed to crumbs
  • 142ml tub double cream
  • 140g icing sugar
  • 400g tub soft cheese
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • 237g pot crunchy peanut butter

Method

  1. Several hours before, place 2 bananas in the freezer until the skins go black, then remove and defrost. You’ll be left with really soft bananas. Peel, then mash well and set aside.

  2. Mix the butter and biscuits together, then press into a 22cm springform cake tin. Whip the cream until it just holds its shape. In a separate bowl, beat the sugar, soft cheese and vanilla together until completely combined. In another bowl, beat the peanut butter to loosen it.

  3. Fold the cheese mixture into the peanut butter, then tip in the mashed banana and gently fold in the cream. Spread the mix over the biscuit base and smooth the top. Freeze for several hours or preferably overnight. To serve, leave the cake in the fridge for 20 mins, then run a knife around the side and remove the sides of the tin. Slice the remaining banana and use to decorate the cheesecake.

Easy to make but pretty tasteless unless defrosted for at least 2-3 hours.
After 20 minutes you could chisel off a piece of tasteless frozen fat. Much better to enjoy tasty, creamy, crunch, sweet, salty cheesecake by defrosting it. Not sure that you really need to freeze it. Might try using some gelatine if I make it again and totally omit the freezer stage.

I don't see what the point of freezing the bananas was? All it did was turn them to mush, but mashing them would do that anyway!

This is fabulous. I agree on doubling the biscuit base. I decorate it with chocolate buttons.

This went down a storm at work.

I would however double up next time on the biscuit base as it seems too thin with such rich topping. I am going to add nutella next time as a 50/50 split to see if this is a interesting twist.

It did use up a lot of bowls and space, but it went down amazingly well, guests were almost fighting over it! Only had it in the freezer for about an hour and half and the texture was about right after that amount of time.

Fabulous! Everyone loved it, including myself and I do not like peanut butter. Used Philly Light and it still was pretty heavy

Do you have to put this in the freezer to set?? Has anybody tried it?

V Good, I froze it for 3 hrs then sliced it. put it back in and now treat a bit like snickers icecream. might do it in a square tin next time to make bars. Also will try less sugar as quite sweet but a lovely treat.

I made this at the weekend. not my favourite combination of ingredients.
In my case i did not freeze as it was thick enough to maintain its structure after 3/4 hours of refrigerating. problem is the bananas go black overnight.

if you love bananas and peanut butter, this is a must have!!

I've made this twice and both times it was a huge hit, especially with my 8yr old daughter who couldnt get enough. I'l be making this again and again for sure.
