Having bananas turning black on the counter,
I decided to make a banana cheese cake.
The bananas were really ripe yet not as sweet
as I wanted them to taste so I added sugar.
I've made a cheese cake like this before,
using chocolate boxed cake mix and Ricotta.
In this I used a yellow cake mix with the cheese
and used up all of my over ripened bananas.
3 ripe bananas
2/3 cup sugar
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup Ricotta cheese
1 package (8 oz.) cream cheese
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 boxed yellow cake mix
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 cup water
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
Grease and flour a 10" spring form pan.
In a mixing bowl combine bananas,
sugar, eggs, vanilla and salt together
making a loose batter, set aside.
In another mixing bowl mix cake batter
as directed on box and then pour into
center of prepared 10" spring form pan.
Pour banana batter in the center of the
yellow cake mix batter, (do not stir).
Place in oven to bake for about 45 minutes
then reduce heat to 300 degrees F.
to finish baking until the cake tests clear.
Let cool before serving,
Refrigerate any left overs.
