Banana Cheesecake With Peanut Butter Frosting


Thousand apologies everyone! I know I've been pretty bad lately. Actually, I was busy taking care of my daughter and also some personal task. My girl is taking her final year examination which will only be ended in another 3 weeks time. While....I was busy preparing something nice for her. Even though I can't help much I still hope I can help her to release her tension by preparing her some really yummilicious food. And here's one of it....... banana cheesecake with peanut butter frosting! Have anyone of you ever tried banana cheesecake before? Honestly, I haven't! I have to tell you that I am falling in love with it immediately.

Here's what I did.

Ingredients for crust :
180gm    digestive biscuit, finely crushed
100gm    ground pistachio
100gm   butter, melted

Ingredients for fillings :
500gm   cream cheese
3 eggs
1 canned condensed milk
4 tbsp  honey
1/4 tspn  salt
1 lemon juice & zest
1 tspn  vanilla extract
3-4 bananas, mashed

Method :
(1) combine crushed biscuit, pistachio and butter in a bowl, stir to combine, then press it to a 9" spring foam tray and keep refrigerated for about 30mins or till set.
(2) next, combine cream cheese, eggs, condensed milk, honey, salt & vanilla into a big mixing bowl and then beat all ingredients at once till smooth & creamy.
(3) now, stir in mashed banana but do not over mixed.
(4) pour cream cheese mixture to the biscuit based pan and bake at preheated oven 170'C for about an hour or till nicely brown & set.
(5) once it's done, leave to cool completely before placing on the frosting & keep chilled overnight before serving.

Ingredients for peanut butter frosting :
250ml   whipping cream
250gm  peanut butter jam
(combine both ingredients and then whisk till it's set and ready for frosting)

#For non-dairy whipping cream : It's best to keep frozen the whole time. Then withdraw the quantity as required and let it rest for 10mins under room temperature before the whisking task cause it works better in this way while the cream is still chilled. 

#For dairy whipping cream : Dairy whipping cream is unlike non-dairy. It's not suitable to keep frozen. So, when using dairy whipping cream it's best to use some cold water with ice cube below the whisking bowl to keep the temperature as low as possible while whisking the cream.

The peanut butter frosting is amazing or you may add in some additional flavour by drizzle on some caramel sauce......hmmm...mmmm..... I can wallop a few slices of them in this way. I'm sure this sounds so really tempting to you too. I would suggest you to try this on the coming thanksgiving dinner. Happy Thanksgiving to all ! Enjoy.

I normally don't like frosting or cream on cake but you mentioned peanut butter didn't you? I will take it! I don't if it will work if it is 100% peanut butter with no whipped cream? ;p
