After my last cheesecake bake I have been getting requests for another one from my kids. But baking a cheesecake isn’t always in the cards for me during my busy weeks of mommin’. That is why I created this super simple Salted Caramel and Banana Cheesecake using just a few ingredients. If you follow me on my social channels you will know I recently received a happy mail swag bag from noosa Yoghurt one of my fan girl favorites! Noosa is my ultimate favorite yoghurt it’s the creamiest and has the best flavors ever. So when they send you a gift you get so excited and create a recipe with one of your favorite flavors. And that is how this Salted Caramel and Banana Cheesecake recipe was born. Also, because I love my readers I want to share some of my swag from noosa! I am running a giveaway at the end of this post for 2 coupons for 2 FREE noosa yoghurts of your choice! (Open to US residents only) Scroll down to enter!
Salted Caramel and Banana Cheesecake
The process is pretty basic and straight forward. You mix the cream ingredients and cool them in the fridge. Then make a graham cracker crust and bake for 10 min at 350 degrees F. Cool the crust, layer bananas, and top with the cream mixture. Finally you just pop it in the fridge to set. I piped some whipped cream on top and it was done. The most difficult part of making Salted Caramel and Banana Cheesecake is the wait for it to set before serving. But once it’s chilled and set everybody will rave about how yummy it was. My husband even said it is the cake he wants for his birthday. He described it as a cheesecake having a baby with his favorite banana cream pie. If that doesn’t sound like a winner I don’t know what is!
