Banana Pudding Cheesecake #SundaySupper

Banana cream pie meets cheesecake in this easy to make dessert. 

Banana Pudding Cheesecake #Sunday Supper

              This weeks Sunday Supper theme is a Big Virtual Picnic and I couldn't think of something better to bring to a picnic than a Banana Pudding Cheesecake.
For the the banana cream pie lover I don't think dessert gets much better than this.
Banana cream pie meets cheesecake.
Colt said it's so good it doesn't even need the whip cream.
Just for the record Colt already put in his order for another Banana Pudding Cheesecake for our Birthday, it's that amazing!
Since we share a Birthday it was a huge relief we both agreed on dessert this year.

In a large bowl combine 12 whole graham cracker crumbs and 1/4 cup sugar. Mix until well combined.
Add 1/2 cup melted butter and stir until combined.Banana-Pudding-Cheesecake-Graham-Cracker-Crust.jpg
Press graham cracker mixture evenly across the bottom and up the sides of the pie plate.
I find a measuring cup works well for pressing the crumbs evenly into the bottom and sides.
Bake crust in a 375 degree oven for 7 minutes or until lightly brown.
Cool completely.

To make Vanilla Pudding: Whisk together 3 egg yolks in a medium sized bowl and set aside.

To make filling: In a large sauce pan whisk together 2/3 cup sugar, 1/3 cup flour and a pinch of salt until well combined.
Banana-Pudding-Cheesecake-Milk.jpgSlowly whisk in 2 cups milk. Bring mixture to a simmer and cook until mixture thickens over medium heat.

Stir mixture continually until thickened.

Slowly add 2 cups of the thickened cooked milk mixture to the egg yolks while mixing to temper egg yolks.
This prevents the eggs from curdling.

Pour egg yolk mixture back into milk mixture and return to a simmer, cook an additional 3-5 minutes while stirring until thick enough to hold it's shape on spoon.
Remove from heat and whisk in 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract.
Banana-Pudding-Cheesecake-Cream-Cheese.jpg
Cream 16 ounces room temperature cream cheese until smooth and creamy.
Add vanilla pudding and mix until well combined.
Scrapes sides of bowl well.
Banana-Pudding-Cheesecake-Crust.jpg
Add enough pudding cheesecake mixture to cover the bottom of the crust.

Add 3-4 sliced bananas to the bottom of the crust.
Cover with remaining cheesecake mixture and refrigerate until cold or overnight.

  25. you forgot to add the vanilla pudding to your ingredients list?

  26. Sorry for any confusion. This recipe makes homemade Vanilla Pudding and doesn't require a box mix. I promise it's well worth the time spent.

    1. Could you use boxed pudding, though? and just mix in the cream cheese?

  32. Hi Serena, I just had to drop you a note to tell you how much we LOVED this recipe...that pudding, all it really needs is a spoon ;) but the bananas and graham cracker crust just take it to unimaginable levels of yumminess!

    Merci pour votre réponse.. cette recette est très .... alléchante Bien à vous

    Replies
    1. Bonjour, I believe you call Cream Cheese: Neufchâtel Cheese a soft and creamy spreadable cheese. The recipe forms the pudding which I believe you would describe it as a custard. Thank you so much and I hope that makes the recipe easier to understand.

      Delete
    2. I was informed from a friend you might need Mon Chou for the Cream Cheese and the Vanilla Pudding is Creme Patisserie. I hope this makes sense to you. Please let me know if I can be of any further assistance.

    2. I used 1/4 cup of cornstarch mixed with the egg yolks and a little of the milk. Tempered it with some of the hot liquid then added it to the hot liquid to finish cooking. This is a keeper for sure.

  39. I would love to try this for new years day but 1 question it says pour milk in with flour and sugar simmering...but then it says add 2 cups milk with egg yolks so how much milk gets added to flour and sugar?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Hi! I'm sorry if I worded that in a confusing way. It's 2 cups Milk total. It's 2 cups of the milk mixture (so the pudding mixture) thats been cooking gets whisked into the egg yolks. Would it make more sense when you read it if I changed it to pudding mixture? I'm sorry to have confused you! Thanks for taking the time to let me know! -Serena

      Delete
  40. in the ingrediants it only says 2 cups milk shouldn't it be 4 cups?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Hi Amanda, No it's 2 cups Milk total. You whisk the milk into the flour and sugar, then cook it down. 2 cups of the cooked pudding (I called it milk mixture) gets whisked into the egg yolks to temper them before adding them back into the pudding mixture so the egg yolks don't curdle! Please let me know if you have any more questions. Thanks, Serena

      Delete
  41. Hi, This looks wonderful! From the ingredients it seems like it is a vanilla pudding that is mixed with the cream cheese and then layers of banana, but later it is referred to as banana pudding. I did not see where the bananas or banana flavoring was added to the pudding? Either way it looks delicious!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Thanks so much Stephanie. I call it banana pudding since as the pudding/cheesecake mixture cools in the refrigerator with the layers of banana's it takes on the banana flavor. It's one of those recipes that the flavor intensifies overnight. Please let me know if you have any other questions, Serena.

      Delete
    2. Isnt a banna pudding made the same way? Layers of vanilla pudding bananas and wafers... Banana flavoring isnt added to the pudding its layered with bananas like this is (some ppl use banana pudding though). I understand why its called a banana pudding cheesecake im just wondering what you think about making a vanilla wafer crust. Gonna make two for new years and report back. Thanks for the wonderful idea!

  42. Is that whole eggs or just the yolks used?

    ReplyDelete
  43. Do you add the Pudding to the Cream Cheese while it's still hot ?

    1. Hi Harriett! Yes you add the pudding to the cream cheese while it's still hot. Let me know if you have any more questions. Thanks, Serena.

  44. Instead of graham crackers, could you use Nilla Wafers?

    ReplyDelete
  45. This would be good with a vanilla wafer crust!

    ReplyDelete
  46. Could you possibly use vanilla wafers instead of graham crackers for the crust? Make it more like banana pudding?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Yes! Just use the vanilla wafer crumbs cup for cup! You could even stick a mini wafer in the whip cream on top to garnish!

  47. I would totally chunky monkey this up with some walnuts and dark chocolate chips/topping sauce :)

  49. After mixing the eggs/thickened milk, and after returning it to the pan, you state to let it thicken until it has the consistency of pudding. Is that the consistency of hot pudding you make on the stove that hasn't yet set - or is it the consistency of set pudding?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Hot Pudding. Once you chill it will set further.

      Delete
  50. So I made this today. Instead of using graham cracker as my crust base, I used Nilla Wafers and ground them up and used them as I would graham cracker crust. For my pudding, I used a stick of butter and cooked the flour for a minute or so to cook out the raw flavor. I also doubled the recipe and made it in a 9x13 pan. I am going to cover it with cool whip before I serve it at the part tomorrow!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. No it actually gets better after a night in the fridge. The flavor of the bananas really flavors the pudding cheesecake mixture. Just make sure the bananas are fully cover with the pudding cheesecake mixture and cover tightly with plastic wrap.

  53. Could you eat this same night? Say, after two hours in the fridge? Or would it not taste right?

    1. Hi Robyn, It would probably needs closer to 3-4 hours in the fridge so it is cold but can be enjoyed the same day it is made.

  56. I made this weekend and it was delicious. But was too runny, compared to your pictures. I followed the instructions exactly. And refrigerated overnight. Any suggestions? Because I am making this again per many requests.

    Replies
    1. The last simmer of the pudding, cook it a little longer. If you look at the last picture of cooking the pudding you can see it almost holds shape even though it is soft the whisk strokes stay in the pudding. It can really be a 30 second to a minute difference in cooking.

    2. Thank you. I will try that.

  57. As a super duper lazy chef, can I use store bought vanilla pudding and just mix it with the cream cheese and continue with the recipe?

    3. Mine was runny also but was very tasty what am I doing wrong?

    4. Did you do my recipe of the suggestion above of vanilla pudding mix. If you've followed my recipe I would make sure you cook the pudding until it holds shape on a spoon. I've never made it with a pudding mix but I would assume it would be making sure it cooks long enough. The pudding should hold shape as it's stirred you can see in the picture where I add the vanilla it's holding it's shape and not runny. I hope that helps.

  58. Oh my word this looks/sounds awesome sauce!!

  59. It seems like tempering is an unneeded extra step. Whisking the yolks in when you add the milk works just fine.

    1. I haven't tried freezing it so I can't give you a definitive answer. I worry it might change the texture since it's a no bake cheesecake. I do know that my Creamy Lemon Cheesecake Crumb Bars or key lime freeze exceptionally well. Congratulations on the new addition and hope everything goes smoothly. -Serena

  65. If I made this on a Friday night and left in the fridge until Sunday Lunch time, would the banana still be good or would it brown completely? I am heading out of town and do not have time to make sunday. I see below where you advised someone to not freeze.

    Replies
    1. It should be fine, just make sure to have them completely covered in the pudding so the air can't touch them. Also press plastic wrap or parchment paper over the top. It really is one of those pies that improves in flavor after a day. Thanks, Serena
