CHOCOLATE BANANA CHEESECAKE RECIPE 
CHOCOLATE BANANA CHEESECAKE RECIPE

I baked this Chocolate Banana Cheesecake Recipe for my dearest husband. He's a huge fan of chocolate banana flavour, and I usually bake a Chocolate Banana Cake for him every year since we've been dating. So I decided to bake something new, but similar, for this year. 

CHOCOLATE BANANA CHEESECAKE RECIPE

3 things I kept in mind when creating this recipe for my husband:
1. Flavour has to be rich (he doesn't enjoy light cakes)
2. It has to be chocolate-y, as that's his favourite dessert flavour
3. Spam bananas, because he loves bananas! 

Banana~ 


The end result is a rich chocolate cheesecake mixed with fresh bananas, topped with dark chocolate ganache. And... it passed my husband's test because he said he loves it! (or maybe he just doesn't want to hurt my feelings ♥)

CHOCOLATE BANANA CHEESECAKE RECIPE

I must admit, our taste buds are starting to become quite similar. Before we dated, my preference for desserts skewed towards Japanese-style, i.e. light, not-rich. In addition, I usually went for the fruity or vanilla flavours. Ever since we got together, I began to crave for rich, chocolate-y flavours. It's true that couples start to behave like each other (in our case, it's our stomachs that have synchronised haha).

Do try out this simple, no-bake cheesecake. Hope you enjoy this cake as much as we did!

  2. Hi! For the decoration, you can use dried bananas. However, I will still recommend using fresh bananas :)
