RECIPE BY KOMAL KHAN.

Banana and coffee marry beautifully in this recipe. Be sure to use green tipped bananas as they complement the coffee's bitterness very well. Tastes great with a cup of coffee. Makes one 8-inch cheesecake.

1 pack of shortbread fingers
70g melted butter, plus extra for frying bananas
600g cream cheese
1 double espresso or 60ml strong coffee
2 bananas
100g icing sugar, plus extra for bananas
2 eggs
50g plain flour

Slice the bananas and fry in a pan with a little icing sugar and butter until golden. Melt the butter in a pan or a bowl in the microwave. Bash up the biscuits (e.g. in a freezer bag using a rolling pin) and stir through the melted butter so you have the texture of sandcastle sand. Grease and line an 8-inch cake tin with greaseproof paper and push this buttery biscuit mixture down using a smooth bottomed glass. Layer sliced bananas on top of the base. Mix the rest of the ingredients together and pour over the base.

Bake at 160°C for 30-40 minutes until golden but still soft with a bit of wibble in the middle. Turn off the oven and leave to cool with the door ajar before serving.
