If you’re a banana lover, my goodness, you’re in for such a treat. This Bananas Foster Cheesecake is made rich with banana flavor, the creamiest classic cheesecake filling, all piled high atop my favorite graham cracker crust. The amazing Bananas Foster sauce on top is what seals the deal and makes this cheesecake so insanely delicious.
Banana cakes are obviously fantastic desserts for any time of year. My Banana Layer Cake is always a hit and one of the first to go! Every party I have brought this banana cheesecake to this year has disappeared just as quickly. It’s simply irresistible!
Go grab those bananas sitting on the counter and treat yourself to this delicious banana cheesecake! I guarantee you will be going back for seconds, and if you are wearing stretchy leggings, thirds.
Bananas foster is a dessert that is traditionally served over ice cream. It was invented at Brennan’s Restaurant in New Orleans in 1951. With my family being from Louisiana, Bananas Foster has always been a favorite in our house.
For a classic Bananas Foster, you first slice bananas, and then you cook them in a sauce made with brown sugar, cinnamon, salt, dark rum and butter. It’s then lit on fire to burn off the alcohol and is served over ice cream.
Instead of pouring that sweet bananas foster over ice cream, though, you’re going to pour it on top of a creamy cheesecake! Such a perfect dessert mash up!
