Pressure Cooker Banana Cheesecake
My Mom had a little accident recently. I decided to try to cheer her a little by making her omething with bananas, one of her favorite flavors. I had a few bananas that were too ripe to just peel and eat. My oldest actually tried to throw them away after I’d decided to save them for use in this cheesecake and I had to literally yell to save them from winding up in the garbage. This recipe is a perfect way to use up black bananas. Banana Cheesecake brings a sweet and fruity flavor to a classic dessert. The cinnamon goes perfectly with the bananas. This banana cheesecake is very moist, rich and heavy, and it has a texture to it as well. Pressure Cooker Banana Cheesecake is really easy to make and is sure to delight any banana lover.

- 1 to 1.5 cups water (however much your pressure cooker manufacturer suggests as minimum amount of water in the pot)
- 32 Nilla Wafer cookies
- 3 tbsp butter, melted
- 4 large ripe bananas
- 16 oz cream cheese, softened
- 1/2 cup white sugar
- 2 tbsp brown sugar
- 2 tsp flour
- 2 tsp cinnamon
- 3/4 tsp vanilla extract
- 2 eggs
- 1/4 cup heavy cream
- 1 tsp lemon juice
- whipped cream
Start out by making the crust.
Place the 32 Nilla Wafer cookies into a ziplocbag and crush them using a meat tenderizer.
Pour the crumbled cookies into a small bowl.
Add the melted butter and mix until thoroughly combined.
Spray a 6″ springform pan with nonstick cooking spray.
Pour the cookie mixture into the pan, then flatten it and press firmly to the bottom of the pan.
Place the pan with the crust into the freezer for 15-20 minutes, during which time you will make the cheesecake filling.
Now it’s time to make the cheesecake filling.
Put the ripe bananas, brown sugar and lemon juice into a medium sized mixing bowl and combine them thoroughly.
Place the cream cheese, heavy cream, vanilla, eggs, sugar and flour into a large mixing bowl and combine thoroughly.
Add the banana mixture to the cream cheese mixture and combine thoroughly until it’s smooth.
Remove the pan with the crust from the freezer.
Pour the cheesecake filling on top of the crust.
Now it’s time to cook the cheesecake!
Pour the water into the bottom of the pot.
Cover the cheesecake with aluminum foil.
Place the cheesecake on top of the silicone trivet.
Place the trivet into the water in the bottom of the pot.
Close the lid and seal the pressure cooker.
Set the pressure cooker to cook on manual high pressure for 40 minutes.
Once the cooking cycle has ended, let the pressure release naturally for 20 minutes.
Remove the trivet from the pot.
Remove the foil from the top of the cheesecake, taking care that any condensation that collected on the foil doesn’t roll into the cheesecake.
Leave the cheesecake on the silicon trivet and allow it to cool for an hour.
Cover the pan with aluminum foil and place in the refrigerator to set overnight.
Remove the cheesecake from the pan.
Top the cheesecake with whipped cream when you’re ready to serve it.
Serve and enjoy!
