Banana Bread Cheesecake

Combine two delicious desserts by mixing cheesecake filling into banana bread batter, then bake in a skillet, and top with dulce de leche.

Banana Bread is one of the most-made recipes at our house. Tyler and Ryan will ask us to get extra bananas just to let them ripen enough to make the bread. While a regular loaf is great, we like to try something different now and then, too. We’ve made Banana Bread Bars before, and this time I wanted to make it into a Banana Bread Cheesecake.

A couple of months ago, I saw a recipe video on facebook that I have long since lost the link to. The video had cheesecake filling mixed with banana bread batter and baked in a skillet. Since I couldn’t find the recipe, we just mixed our recipe for banana bread with a cheesecake recipe and went from there.

The boys still prefer regular banana bread since they can eat it for breakfast, but this was a welcome dessert. One thing the video did not show was any type of topping, but it needed something. I had some Dulce de Leche in the fridge from making Hot Apple Cider and it was a perfect topping. If you don’t have Dulce de Leche, caramel topping is a good substitute.

Step by Step

Preheat the oven to 350F. Prepare the banana bread batter by mashing the ripened bananas in a large mixing bowl. I like to use the whisk on my stand mixer for this, but it isn’t necessary.

Add the sugar, eggs, butter, and vanilla extract. Whisk until they are thoroughly combined.

Mix in the flour, baking soda, and salt until they are well combined and form a batter.

Gently fold in the chocolate chips and pour this into an oven-safe 10″ skillet.

In a medium mixing bowl, make the cheesecake filling by combining the cream cheese, egg, sugar, flour, and salt.

Spoon the cream cheese filling over the banana bread mixture.

Use a butter knife to gently mix the cream cheese filling into the banana bread without completely combining the two together.

Bake for about 30-35 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Drizzle with Dulce de Leche or another caramel topping and serve warm.
