  • Serves: 10 persons



  1. Step 1

    Butter and line the base and sides of a loose-bottomed 20cm springform tin. Heat the remaining butter in a small pan or by pulsing it in the microwave. Tip the biscuits into a food processor and whizz to fine crumbs, then add the melted butter and whizz again. Tip into the tin and use a spoon to make an even, compressed layer. Chill for 30 minutes.
  2. Step 2

    Heat 2 tbsp of the butter in a non-stick frying pan over a medium-high heat and fry two of the sliced bananas on both sides for 1-2 minutes or until caramelised. Cool completely, then drizzle with 3 tbsp of the caramel sauce. Put the banana slices and any caramel in an even layer on top of the biscuit base. Chill.
  3. Step 3

    Put the cheese, sugar and 5 tbsp of the caramel sauce into a bowl and whisk until smooth and creamy. In a separate bowl whisk the double cream to soft peaks, then fold this into the cheese mixture. Spoon into the tin and level the top. Chill for at least 6 hours.
  4. Step 4

    Carefully remove the cheesecake from the tin and transfer to a serving plate. Garnish with the remaining sliced banana and a good drizzle of the caramel sauce, before cutting into slices to serve.
