The crust for this quick banana dessert is made from some crushed up cookie crumbs mixed with a mixture of butter and golden syrup.
You could also whizz them up in your food processor, but really it takes just a couple of minutes with the rolling pin and you don't need to wash up the food processor afterwards!
Gently press down the mixture with the back of a spoon to press down evenly over the base and sides.
Then put the base in the fridge to chill until you are ready to add the filling.
Tip the marscapone cheese, cream and sugar into a bowl and mix it together until well mixed and smooth. Then pour in some lemon juice and continue to stir until it is smooth.
Now slice a couple of bananas into the filling mixture and stir them in.
Make sure you use nice firm bananas. Unlike a banana bread where you want your bananas to be turning brown and soft, for this simple no bake cheesecake you want them to be firm so they don't go mushy.
Spoon it into the crumb case and smooth it down with the back of a spoon. Sprinkle over some grated dark chocolate (it is easier to grate chocolate if it has been in the fridge first) and chill it in the fridge until it is ready to eat. Full Recipe on the Blog!
