Using half wholemeal and half plain flour gives a classic banana bread texture – you can use all plain although it will give you a lighter coloured base.



  • soft cheese 350g
  • double cream 150ml
  • icing sugar 75g
  • vanilla extract 1 tsp
  • lemon 1, zested
  • salted caramel 5 tbsp
  • bananas 2 small, to decorate


  • butter 40g, softened, plus extra for the tin
  • soft light brown sugar 50g
  • plain flour 60g
  • wholemeal flour 50g
  • baking powder 1 tsp
  • egg 1
  • bananas 2 very ripe, roughly mashed


  • Step 1

    Heat the oven to 180C/fan 160C/gas 4. To make the base, beat the butter, sugar, flours, baking powder, egg and bananas together with a pinch of salt. Spoon into a base-lined and buttered deep 20cm springform tin.

  • Step 2

    Bake for 30-35 minutes or until a skewer comes out clean. Release from the tin and cool completely. Wash and dry the tin as you’ll need it to assemble the cheesecake.

  • Step 3

    Put the cheese in a bowl and briefly beat to loosen it. Gradually beat in the cream and sugar – the mix will thicken as you go. Stir in the vanilla and lemon zest.

  • Step 4

    Put the cooled banana bread back into the base of the tin. Spread over 2 tbsp of caramel then dollop on the topping and smooth it flat. Put in the fridge overnight to chill and set.

  • Step 5

    Release the cheesecake from the tin and transfer to a serving plate. Decorate with banana slices and drizzle with more caramel before serving.
