Dulce de Leche Banoffee Cheesecake with Greek Yoghurt

I’ve been avoiding posting desserts the past month, although I have so many recipes I want to post.  It’s so hard to resist when you are cutting down the calories.

I made this dessert early June, when my son visited from Geneva.  I had made Dulce de Leche for the second time and I was looking for recipes to use it.   I found this recipe at Delia Online but as usual I did not have most of the ingredients, such as pecans, curd cheese, fromage frais or golden syrup, so I made a few changes.   I did not make  the sauce at all but I just mixed some dulce de leche with cream, just enough to make it runny like a sauce.

Dulce de Leche Banoffee Cheesecake with Greek Yoghurt – Recipe by Ivy, adapted from Delia Online.

Preparation time: 45 minutes

Cooking time:65 minutes covered plus 5 minutes uncovered



For crust:



Chocolate wafer biscuits



Roasted hazelnuts



Butter or margarine at room temperature

Cream cheese-yoghurt filling:








Philadelphia cheese



Greek Yoghurt



Vanilla essence



Bananas, mashed

For the sauce:



Dulce de leche

A few


Light cream

For the topping:



Ripe bananas



Lemon juice

Dark chocolate shavings



Roasted Walnuts



Combine crumbs, hazelnuts and butter, in a 28 cm spring form tin.


Mash the bananas in a food processor.


Beat eggs, sugar and vanilla essence and then add cheese, yoghurt and bananas andmix.


Empty cream cheese mixture on base and cover with aluminum foil.


Preheat oven at 180 degrees C and put the cheesecake in another tin with water.Put in the oven and bake for about one hour, or until just set. Allow to cool completely, then cover again with aluminum foil and place in the refrigerator and chill for at least an hour.


Carefully remove the cheesecake from the tin and place on a serving plate, using a knife to loosen the cake base from the bottom of the tin.


When you are ready to assemble the cheesecake put the 2 tablespoons of lemon juice into a bowl. Slice the bananas (about ½ cm) and gently toss them around to get an even coating of juice. Spread the dulce de leche on top of the cake, decorate with the bananas, walnuts and chocolate.


Serve with some extra sauce on top.

We will be away for the whole of August but as we are not going very far away from Athens we will be coming a few times back for some things we have to take care of here in Athens.    I have programmed a few posts which will be posted during August but you will not be seeing the comments immediately but will post them when we visit and will try and catch up with your posts as well.

  8. Have a lovely vacation, Ivy! Beautiful cheesecake. I’d need to pass on this right now, too, as, like you, I’m trying to lose some weight. I may bookmark it for a special occasion, though – it has many of my favorite ingredients.

  9. Very decadent dessert! I love the banoffee topping! Have a great time off!

  10. I like the presence of yogurt here – that will cut the sweetness of banana and dulce de leche. How you manged to have leftover Dulce de Leche is beyond me…I could eat it alone!

  11. I’ve never heard the term Banoffee, what does it mean?

    And this looks heavenly! you know my obsession w/ cheesecakes, so this is definitely on my list!!!

  12. I love the hazelnuts the best here;-) looks gorgeous! what does banoffee mean (making me think of banana & coffee , but it definitely is not;-) )

    Thank you for your lovely comments and for your wishes.

    Sorry for not explaining what banoffee means. I thought that everybody knew what it is. Banoffee (from the words banana and toffee) is an English pie (also spelled banoffi, or banoffy) made from bananas, cream and dulce de leche, either on a pastry base or one made from crumbled biscuits.

  14. That looks divine. You have been making some awesome desserts lately…really tempting.

  15. Simply divine! I have been looking for a GOOD banana cheesecake recipe….now I have it!

    I've found a wonderful way of trying out decadent recipes, but not gaining weight … Although I walk 24 km/week at the gym, I have these coffee friends and we meet up 3 times a week after Tai Chi class. So I try a recipe, have a taste, take photo's and the rest I give to them. Clear conscience all the way.
