      Mouthwatering cheesecake with only natural banana for lots of fresh banana flavor. Looks extravagant, too. The crust is nice blend of peanuts, graham crackers and banana, thus less butter needed than usually. The thing I did tamper with is amount of sugar. I am usually the one to reduce sugar out of everythig, but here I multiplied the amount by 5 and it was still only mildly sweet. The texture of the cake did not suffer from this,it was very smooth but compact. Oh, and I only made 1/3 of the original amount, that was perfect for my 9" springform. Anything more would have spilled over.
