Bananas Foster Cheesecake

If you are wondering what to serve for Mother’s Day Brunch…
Here is a preview of tomorrow’s desert. Banana’s Foster cheesecake.
Teal Bronkalla saw a Facebook posting for the Ina Garten (Barefoot Contessa) Banana’s Foster cheesecake . However this was the jumping off point. Teal used our absolute favorite Colorado Cache cheesecake recipe (and of course when you are going to cover the cheesecake there are no cracks in the top) and the Banana’s Foster topping. This is absolutely delicious.


Cheesecake Crust

1 1/4 graham cracker crumbs
1/2 c brown sugar
1/4 c melted butter
Mix and bake in a 9″ spring form pan for 12 min at 350 F

Filling

1 lb cream cheese (we use Neufchatel) to lighten it up a bit
3/4 c sugar
5 eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract (the good stuff)
In the mixer, cream the cheese well and slowly add the sugar. Then add the eggs one at a time and keep beating.
Pour into crust and bake 45+ min at 350

Topping

4 TB butter
2/3 c brown sugar
4 bananas – not very ripe, just to the barely all yellow stage – you want them tart
Melt butter and brown sugar until bubbly. Stir in bananas and cook for 1 min. Pour into a bowl and cool for at least 10 min.
Pour over the cool cheesecake.
