Banana pudding cheesecake is the best combination of two all-time classic desserts. Fresh banana flavor meets the rich decadence of cheesecake in this treat that brings back childhood memories of eating Nilla Wafers with milk — at least it does for me! And if you’ve ever had banana pudding you know that the thick goodness blended with banana slices is pure happiness.
Blogger Life, Love and Sugar’s recipe isn’t the easiest to bake, but thanks to the ripe bananas and banana pudding that’s incorporated into the batter, it’s a cheesecake that’s loaded with that banana-y flavor that you crave.
In addition to a step-by-step recipe, she offers important tips for baking the ultimate cheesecake, which for those who haven’t yet done it isn’t a simple feat to accomplish. For example, you’ll want to make sure that the ingredients are room temperature, that batter is beaten on low and to use a water bath. After the cheesecake has cooled down, this blogger tops it with more slices of banana, vanilla wafers and whipped cream.
For a recipe that incorporates a hint of molasses brown sugar flavor, try out Spicy Southern Kitchen’s Banana Cheesecake recipe that begins with a vanilla wafer crust. She’s a big fan of Nilla Wafers, so if you are too this recipe is one you’ll love. She recommends keeping enough wafers to create a ring along the circumference of the springform pan, and if you want to add even more wafers, adding an extra layer in the middle of the filling.
