Vegan MoFo Day 21:Banana Cheesecake with Chocolate Peanut Butter Pretzel Topping
This is a banana cheesecake.Mmm.Banana-y.
It's an actual recipe,from a book called "Vegan Indulgence".
It's Australian!Find out more about it here.
It's a small cute book.I've seen the author on the ppk,but can't remember her user name right now.Anyways,I was given it by a friend while in Portland because the book calls for a lot of custard powder.Most recipes,actually.Anyways,I guess since us common wealth health care loving countries are so similar we have custard powder everywhere.I mean,it's the heart and soul of Nanaimo bars!I couldn't find it in the Save on Foods and told a clerk and they were shocked,but then we found it!It's a totally normal thing!Well,not for that freak country America.Wtf?Anyways,the book was almost useless to her,so I got it!And yay,because it looked really exciting.I saw it for sale at Food Fight! btw.The book,not custard powder.Maybe that have that too?
Anyways,this cheesecake is AWESOME!Suuuuper banana-y.So for banana lovers only.The texture is great!Really creamy.And dare I say"custard-y"?Sorry,i'm rubbing it in certain people's faces.
And I added a topping of peanut butter covered pretzels while it was hot out of the oven so the peanut butter melted down onto the cake a bit,and added a nice chocolate drizzle.
The book calls it Banana Cheezecake,with a "z",in case it matters.
It's a short book,but next I hope to make the Tiramisu,or Creme Bruleee.
THOUGH one huge complaint,is that there is not a single peanut butter recipe.Whatevs,I can add it like I did this one.
