For the Cheesecake Filling:

  • 24 ounces (680g) cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup (200g) granulated sugar

  • 1 cup (240ml) strawberry sauce
  • Whipped cream
  • Maraschino cherries

Optional Additions:

  • Chopped nuts (like walnuts or pecans) for added texture and crunch


1. Prepare the Crust:

  • In a mixing bowl, combine the graham cracker crumbs and melted butter until evenly moistened.
  • Press the mixture into the bottom of a 9-inch springform pan or a pie dish. Use the back of a spoon or a flat-bottomed glass to pack it tightly.
  • Place the crust in the refrigerator to chill while you prepare the filling.

2. Make the Cheesecake Filling:

  • In a large bowl, beat the softened cream cheese until smooth and creamy.
  • Add the granulated sugar and vanilla extract, and beat until well combined and fluffy.
  • In a separate bowl, whip the heavy cream until stiff peaks form.
  • Gently fold the whipped cream into the cream cheese mixture until smooth and fully incorporated.

3. Assemble the Cheesecake:

  • Spread half of the cheesecake filling evenly over the chilled crust.
  • Arrange half of the sliced bananas on top of the cheesecake filling.
  • Drizzle half of the chocolate sauce and half of the strawberry sauce over the bananas.
  • Repeat with the remaining cheesecake filling, sliced bananas, and sauces.

4. Chill and Serve:

  • Cover the cheesecake with plastic wrap or foil and refrigerate for at least 4 hours, or preferably overnight, until set.
  • Before serving, garnish with whipped cream and maraschino cherries.
  • Slice and serve chilled.

Tips for Success:

  • Ensure the cream cheese is softened to room temperature for a smooth and creamy cheesecake filling.
  • Use ripe bananas for the best flavor and texture.
  • Allow enough time for the cheesecake to chill and set in the refrigerator before serving for the best results.
