All of the flavors of banana walnut bread that your mom used to make but in the form of a cheesecake.

I reduced the recipe to make 1/4 with my grandson. We made small individual cheesecakes so I have no insight on the baking time or instructions. We had 3 mini cheesecakes with a smooth texture and mild banana flavor. I would have liked walnuts incorporated in the filling or added as a top layer so may try that next time. Thank you for your contribution to RSC & good luck!
