Banana & Chocolate Cheesecake – Banan & Choklad Cheesecake

IMG_5736

I don’t make a lot of cheesecakes, mostly because of my own impatience, and the slightly longer cooking times. Although, my friend Samantha made a cheesecake a couple of weekends ago, and I got inspired (because it was so good) to make one as well! I altered the recipe slightly by adding one egg since I don’t bake with corn starch. I added some chocolate powder to the crust, and banana to the filling, and it came out to be delicious! Try it yourself!
