    Peanut butter starts with dry roasting peanuts, which concentrates and heightens their flavour…

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.

wonderful indulgence, especially if you don't add all the sugar at once so that you can judge the taste. Added a dark chocolate sauce which was a great accompaniment.

Really liked this and was a winner with my friends, but yes - does need longer than 20 mins in the fridge!

Made this last weekend and was really looking forward to it. i love banana and love peanut butter (I usually eat it out of the jar!) it was easy to make but I wasn't made on it. I didn't get much flavour from the banana (except the ones I used for decoration) It was quite sickening too....... I also wasn't sure how the texture was meant to be. Said 20mins in fridge, needed about an hour. I wasn't sure if it was to be frozen or not (like an ordinary one) Won't be making this again

I used very ripe bananas, so they were very spotted when I used them. If you use black bananas, yes the texture is softer but you lose out on some of the flavour if they're too ripe. They won't be as sweet so it's better when they're very spotted. When I first made this, I was quite dissapointed with the flavour. I took it out of the freezer and kept it in the fridge for about 3 days. Every day the flavour becuase more beautiful. It tasted great. This lasted until about day 4 of it being in the fridge when the flavour started going downhill simpy becuase it was getting old. I have also found this maturing or developing time very important for baked goods too. Try this recipe! I can't wait to make it again. It's quite unusual.

family loved this one but 20 mins in the fridge was just not long enough needs at least 40.

This was fantastic! I'd leave it in the fridge for about 40 minutes, though. It was really good when let thaw a bit extra - nice and creamy!

This was yummy! Followed the recipe as stated and maybe next time I'd leave it longer than 20 mins in fridge as it was still a little hard! But delicious nevertheless :) Definately be making this again.
