This is an easy and decadent cheesecake that looks quite impressive when drizzled with toffee sauce. I sometimes double the base recipe to make it just a bit thicker.

The cheesecake itself is wonderful -- almost the texture of banana pudding, with a thick, flavorful crust. Maybe it's because the crust wasn't baked ahead of time, or maybe because I only used an 8x12 baking dish, but it came out very thick and with a great texture, unlike some crusts that fall apart when you serve them. But the other reviewers are right, the caramel sauce is a flop, it's like water. Next time I'll just use pre-made caramel topping, if anything. BTW, don't forget to douse the banana slices in lemon juice or vitamin C before garnishing, so they don't turn brown.-28 Jan 2003
I made this for a dinner party and it was a big hit! Everyone loved it! Took the advice of different people here. I doubled the amount of mashed bananas and I think it definitely gave the cake a better, stronger, more "banana" flavor. I also "cheated" and just used a jar of caramel sauce from the store. Shortly before serving, I decorated the top with the caramel sauce and sliced bananas around the rim. This cake is so easy but tastes like you slaved over it for hours! Will definitely be making this again!!-05 Jan 2007
The cheesecake is very creamy! Not dry like some cheesecakes. Good Crust, just a hint of sweetness. Next time I'd make it 1 cup banana for more flavor. Also, the caramels should be melted in a double broiler and add the evaporated milk slowly until it reaches the consistency desired. Drizzle on cool cheesecake. Cover to keep from drying out. Family liked it and so did co-workers! Thanks for sharing.-14 Nov 2002
