Uptown Banana Pudding Cheesecake

I haven't tried this recipe yet, but I saw it in a Southern Living magazine and it sounds great. Refrigerating time should be taken into consideration before baking for a party, however.

ingredients

directions

  • Combine first three ingredients in a small bowl. Press evenly into bottom of a lightly greased 9-inch spring form pan.
  • Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes. Cool on a wire rack.
  • Combine bananas and lemon juice in a small saucepan. Stir in brown sugar. Place over medium-high heat and cook, stirring constantly, for about 1 minute or just until sugar has melted. Set aside.
  • Beat cream cheese at medium speed with an electric mixer until smooth (around 3 minutes). Gradually add granulated sugar. Add eggs, one at a time, then beat in coffee liqueur and vanilla. Blend well. Pour into prepared vanilla wafer crust. Spoon tablespoonfuls of banana mixture evenly over top, and swirl gently into cream cheese mixture.
  • Bake at 350 degrees for 35-40 minutes or until center is almost set.
  • Drop spoonfuls of Meringue gently and evenly over hot filling.
  • Bake at 400 degrees for 10 minutes or until Meringue is golden brown. Remove from oven and gently run a knife around the edge of cheesecake in the spring-form pan to loosen. Cool cheesecake completely on a wire rack. Cover loosely, and chill 8 hours. Release and remove sides of pan.
  • [MERINGUE: Beat egg whites and salt at high speed with an electric mixer until foamy. Add sugar, one tablespoon at a time, beating until soft peaks form and sugar dissolves (about 1-2 minutes).].

    AWESOME! Subbed pecans for walnuts. Instead of meringue I used FF Cool Whip. (Needed to cut calories SOMEWHERE!)

    I was sent this recipe through a Southern Living Facebook application and just had to try it and was I glad I did. I made it for one of my co-worker's birthday and everyone loved it. I did not make a meringue though as it was so humid I knew it would not work so I put extra-creamy whipped topping on it and sprinkled a crushed up Skor bar on top. also, in the crust I cooked the chopped pecans in a little sugar and butter until the sugar was lightly browned and stirred that into the crushed vanilla wafers and butter mixture. I also did not add the coffee liqueur since I didn't have any but this cheesecake was DIVINE.

    This recipe is outstanding! Well worth the effort. Don't be fooled by the "no-bake" version of this recipe that you may find elsewhere on the internet. A block of cream cheese and a box of Jello a cheesecake does NOT make.;) FWIW, the 35-40 minute bake time was not long enough in my oven. Also, I don't understand why the recipe calls for adding the banana mixture to the cheesecake mixture after it's already been poured into the springform pan.
