If you like Banoffee Pie then I'm sure you'll love my Banoreo Cheesecake which is sliced bananas on an Oreo biscuit crumb base topped with cream cheese, cream, vanilla and more Oreos!
banana, Entertaining, Oreo
– 3 bananas
mls double cream
sachet Vege Gel
Oreos to decorate
Line a 20cm springform cake tin with baking paper.
Place 200g of Oreos in 2 plastic food bags and smash with a rolling pin to form crumbs.
Melt the butter in a pan over a gentle heat, then stir in the Oreo crumbs.
Pour the crumb mix into the tin and flatten down evenly.
Spread the banana slices over the base.
Whip the cream with a whisk until it forms soft peaks.
Make up the vege gel by sprinking onto 200 mls of cold water and mixing (dispersing any lumps with a fork, or sieve) then bring to the boil in a pan.
Set aside to cool for 5 mins.
Place the cream cheese, sugar and vanilla extract in a bowl and mix well, then mix in the cream.
Pour in the vege gel and beat with a large whisk until thoroughly mixed in.
Fold in the broken Oreos.
Pour mixture onto biscuit base and smooth out with a spatula.
Cool in fridge for a minimum of 3 hrs to set.
Once set decorate cheesecake with broken Oreos.
Best eaten on the same day.
NB: I have reduce the amount of butter in the base from 100g to 60g to give a more crumbly texture!
