PEOPLE!! I cannot express how good this cake is in words! And I work as a journalist. It is TDF!!! I did add one and a half cups of mashed banana instead of half a cup. And I left the walnuts out. It was a fantastic cheesecake. I will try using this recipe to make a oreo cheesecake, and maybe a strawberry cheesecake too. Thank you so much! Our family had a wonderful sweet last night. Thank you!!
