I love Banana Cheesecake. I've been using this recipe for a long time. The first time I ever had it was at a restaurant and I was hooked. It's an easy recipe with great banana flavor! I love topping my banana cheesecake with whip cream and then slice bananas right before serving and place them on the plate or cheesecake.
