Dark Chocolate Banana Cheesecake

I was jonesing for a cheesecake the other day.  So I started looking at what I had.  Here is what I came up with.

First I did not have the crust fixins.  So I took a pie crust rolled out and sprinkled it with sugar and cinnamon.  Rolled it back up and sliced it into pieces.

Then placing them in a oiled cake pan, I smushed them down flat.

This made my cinnamon roll pie crust bottom.

Next I mixed up what I had for fillings.  Came up with a pretty good one.  Here it is.

2 packages of Cream Cheese
1 tub of Philadelphia Dark Chocolate Indulgence
3 ripe bananas
3 eggs
1 cup sugar 
1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla

Mixed the tar out of it and poured it over my cinnamon roll pie crust.  Popped it in the oven at 350 and cooked til it was done.  Time?  About an hour.  Never have been good at these things.  Just watch for it to be pulled away from the sides and the top looks firm.  I tested it by placing a knife in to see if it came out clean.

The end piece was sliced, place on a fancy paper plate and drizzled with chocolate sauce.  Whew!  This sure did the trick for me.

As you can see I did not get it all mixed up really well, so make sure you do.  I did have some chunks of cream cheese that was not smushed up enough.


  1. I don't understand the term 'jonesing' but the cake sounds nice.

  2. oh my goodness that looks tasty!!! You really cook up some good lookin treats! Nummy!

    ...and jonesing means "to yearn" for something doesn't it?


Yippee! You came to talk to me. Thanks.
You know how special that makes me feel?
Like I swallowed the moon and the stars and I just shine now!
