"Miniature banana cheesecakes topped with brulee"

Preparation Time:
40 minutes
Cooking Time:
20 minutes
Ready In:
3 hours
Servings: 6
Ingredients:
  • 1 C. Graham cracker crumbs
  • 2 T. finely-diced walnuts - can be omitted
  • 2 oz. (half stick) butter
  • 1 lb. softened creme cheese
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 C. whipping cream
  • 1/4 C. sugar
  • 1 T. vanilla
  • 4 bananas, cut in 1/2 inch pieces
  • Approximately additional 1/2 C. sugar for brulee
Directions:

This dish requires three unusual pieces of kitchen equipment:
An immersion blender- see notes
Four-inch springforms
Blow torch - see notes


Preparations:
Assemble springforms
Spray inside of springforms with lubricant- see notes
Melt butter
Mix butter, Graham crackers, and diced nuts
Divide the mixture evenly into the bottom of the springforms
Flatten- see notes
Set aside

In a large saucepan, combine eggs, sugar, whipping cream and vanilla
Bring to a heat low enough the eggs won't cook
Cut the creamcheese into slabs
Microwave until slightly warm
Slowly add the slabs of soft creamcheese to the whipping cream mixture, using the immersion blender to thoroughly incorporate into the mix - see notes


Directions:
Prepare springforms
Preheat oven 320 F
Make the filling
Dice the banana into 1/2" pieces
Hand fold the banana into the mixture
Pour into prepared springforms
Scree- see notes
Bake 20 minutes, rotating halfway

Remove from oven and allow to cool
Run a thin blade around the edge to separate from springform
Remove ring of springform
Refrigerate several hours until solid
When solid, remove from base of springform

For service spread an even 1/16"-thick layer of sugar on top of the cakes - approximately 1 T.
Heat with a blowtorch until melted - see notes
Serve immediately- see notes


Notes:
Softening cream cheese to room temperature, then beating in a mixer, leaves the cream cheese in curds. Warming in a saucepan with cream and beating with an immersion blender makes a finer, preferable, batter.

You might think, having a crust with butter in it, it should be easy to separate the cakes from the springforms. However, once refrigerated, the butter congeals, and the lubricant makes it easier to remove the springform bottoms.

The easiest way to flatten the Graham cracker mixture against the bottom of the springform is by pressing with the flat bottom of a glass

Scree refers to using the tines of a fork to push the pieces of banana down into the batter, leaving a smooth liquid surface on top

Kitchen support stores sell little blowtorches they claim will make brulee. They're expensive ($50), and lack power. Home Depot sells the Bernzomatic UL100 ($17), which makes the job easy.

Bananas turn brown. The same thing happens to the bananas in this dish, limiting the advance time for making it. Its best prepared soon before serving. One day maximum.
