Bananas Foster Cheesecake

Bananas Foster Cheesecake recipe

Bananas Foster, long a staple of restaurant dessert carts, is available here in cheesecake form. There's rum involved—but we opted out of igniting it!

How to ripen bananas: Bananas ripen best at room temperature. To quickly ripen bananas, place the fruit in a brown paper bag and close the bag tightly. The fruit gives off a gas as it ripens. Containing the gas in the closed bag will hasten the ripening process.
