WHAT IS BANANAS FOSTER?
Bananas encourage is a sweet that is customarily served over frozen yogurt. It was designed at Brennan’s Restaurant in New Orleans in 1951. With my family being from Louisiana, Bananas Foster has forever been a #1 in our home.
For an exemplary Bananas Foster, you first cut bananas, and afterward you cook them in a sauce made with earthy colored sugar, cinnamon, salt, dull rum and spread. It’s then, at that point, got on fire going to consume off the liquor and is served over frozen yogurt.
Rather than pouring that sweet bananas cultivate over frozen yogurt, however, you will pour it on top of a rich cheesecake! Such an ideal sweet blend!
HOW TO STORE CHEESECAKE
Step by step instructions to STORE CHEESECAKE: You’ll need to refrigerate this cheesecake in a hermetically sealed holder and eat it inside 3-4 days. However, i question it will take you that long to eat up it!
If you have any desire to freeze the cheesecake, I suggest not garnish it with the sauce. This Bananas Foster sauce doesn’t freeze well. You can wrap the whole cheesecake (without sauce), or a solitary cut, firmly with cling wrap and a second layer of foil and freeze it for as long as 90 days.
At the point when you are prepared to serve it, let it defrost in the ice chest for 24 hours and afterward make the Bananas Foster sauce on top!
TIPS FOR SUCCESS
This banana cheesecake is almost too pretty to cut into… Almost. Then after that first bite you will be going back for seconds — guaranteed!
Anyways, here are some helpful tips to help you achieve the best cheesecake:
- Plan Ahead: It is definitely ideal to make this cheesecake a day before you plan to serve it (the cheesecake, NOT the topping).
- Preparing the Cream Cheese: Make sure you are using a good quality cream cheese and it is at room temperature before beginning.
- Use Room Temperature Eggs: room temperature eggs ensure a smooth and creamy cheesecake. The eggs will not combine as smoothly if they are chilled.
- Creaming the Cream Cheese: Cream the cream cheese for at LEAST 5 minutes. This is an important step and the longer you cream the cream cheese the better the consistency of your cheesecake will be.
- How to Get a Smooth Filling: Make sure you scrape the sides and bottom of your bowl after the addition of each ingredient. This helps keep the filling nice and smooth.
- Don’t Over Mix: DO NOT OVER MIX THE EGGS. Mix just until the yolk disappears into the mixture and add the next.
- How to Avoid Cracks in the Cake: Allowing the cheesecake to cool in the oven with the door closed is the only way I have been able to repeatedly get smooth cheesecakes with no cracks. Like I said above, this is an optional step, but it’s worth it.
- Refrigerate the Cheesecake: I know it is hard, but let the cheesecake set in the fridge overnight. You will not be sorry.
