I thought it was about time to post another recipe here. This one is taken from my blog (www.glutenfreescallywag.com) I hope you enjoy it!
Caramelised Banana & Ginger No-Bake Cheesecake: Gluten Free Recipe
makes 4 mini cheesecakes
For the Gingerbread Base
150g Gluten Free Gingerbread, crushed
1/4tsp ground ginger
50g butter, cold, chopped
In a food processor combine the gluten free gingerbread, ground ginger and butter until a fine crumb forms.
Line the bases of 4 small, round springfrom tins. Divide the crumbsevenly amongst the tins and press evenly into the base only. Refridgerate.
For the No Bake Cheesecake
1 old blackish banana (do not use fresh yellow ones!)
1tblspn brown sugar
pinch mixed spice
250g cream cheese, softened to room temperature
50g castor sugar
1/3cup sour cream
1tsp powdered gelatine, disolved in 2tblspn hot water*
In a small fry pan melt the butter and brown sugar till disolved. Add the quartered banana and fry on low until golden. Remove from heat and allow to cool completely.
Once cool place all remaining ingredients and the banana (and juices!) whiz in a food processor until smooth.
Pour evenly into the 4 tins. Smooth the top and return to the refridgerator for 6hrs or overnight.
To serve remove from tins and sprinkle with a pinch nutmeg and enjoy!
*Note, you can leave out the gelatine mixture, however the cheesecake won't set properly, so make them in small glasses that you can serve them in (like these little cheesecakes pots) and your guests won't even notice!
