A Valentine Banoffee Cheesecake Recipe!

I am a huge fan of anything Banoffee flavoured. I’m not sure who first combined Banana and Toffee, but whoever they were, they were a genius! So in honour of Banoffee I thought I’d bring you our Banoffee Cheesecake Recipe. In honour of the impending romantic season I felt it had to be heart shaped.

What You’ll Need

Base:

10 Digestive biscuits

6 Oat biscuits

85g (3oz) Butter

Filling:

675g (24oz) Cream Cheese

150ml (5fl oz) Double Cream

140g (5oz) Caster Sugar

3 Eggs

1 Tbsp Lemon Juice

3 Bananas

Topping:

3 Bananas

2 Tbsp Lemon Juice

Sauce:

50g (2oz) Butter

75g (3oz) Soft Brown Sugar

150g (5oz) Golden Syrup

150ml (5fl oz) Double Cream

Couple of Drops Vanilla Extract

Step 1

Begin by making the base. Melt the butter in a pan. Then using either a rolling pin or food processor crush the digestive and oat biscuits until fine. Add the melted butted and blend until fully mixed.

Press the mixture into a lined and greased heart shaped tin. For a healthier option you can use a silicon baking tray as I have, it requires no greasing.

Step 2

Bake the base in a preheated oven at 150C/300F/Gas Mark 2 for 10-15 minutes. Remove when just lightly browned and let cool for 5 minutes.

Step 3

Mix all the filling ingredients together in a large mixing bowl. Pour them onto the cooled base and place back in the oven for 1 hour. Turn the oven off and allow the cheesecake to cool completely before removing and placing in the fridge.

Step 4

Taking the 3 bananas for your topping, slice them at a slight angle. Place them in a bowl and toss them in the Lemon Juice to prevent browning. Now lay them on top of your cheesecake, each slice overlapping slightly. Place cheesecake back in fridge.

Step 5

Next we will make the sauce. In a saucepan melt together the butter, sugars and syrup. Do this over a very low heat. You need to make sure the sugar has completed dissolved, this can take a little while, but your sauce will be grainy if you rush. Once dissolved continued to cook the sauce for 5 minutes. Now add the double cream and vanilla extract. Remove from the heat and allow to cool before serving in a jug.

Step 6

Try not to eat it all at once!
