Banoffee Strawberry Cheesecake

Are you a starter or a dessert person?

We all love going out to dinner and you always get some people who opt for a starter and main course and some that love to have a main course and a dessert. I have to confess, I am the latter. I do love my desserts and look forward to them at the end of the meal. I hate it when friends say I don’t want dessert I share yours! No I don’t share if you want dessert you have your own that’s my moto!

My favourite desserts are cheese cakes, my two all-time favourite flavours are strawberry cheesecake and banoffee cheesecake. It’s hard to choose between the two actually. To curb my desire for them I came up with an idea to combine the two and make a Cheats Banoffee strawberry cheesecake that can literally be constructed in less than 10 minutes.

I always use the freshest ingredients when it comes to cooking and baking. The reason this is called a cheats dessert is because it does not require slaving over a hot stove. All you need is fresh cream, strawberries, bananas, digestive biscuits and butter and my favourite Fabbri Mini topping Wild Strawberry Syrup and Fabbri Mini topping Caramel Syrup.

I love the Fabbri range of fruits in syrups and fruits, they taste homemade and are so convenient to use in bakes and desserts. I always keep a selection of Mini topping Wild Strawberry Syrup, Mini topping Chocolate Syrup, Mini topping Caramel Syrup, Amarena Fruit and Syrup, Fragola Opaline, Gourmet Vanilla Syrup, Granatina Syrup and Gourmet Hazelnut Syrup . They are all really handy for mocktails and cocktails too as well as for cold coffees. The fruits and syrups are great for spooning over ice creams too. 

All these products are available from Ciao Gusto Italian Deli at Ocado. 
Together with these you can also pick up some authentic Italian ingredients such as pasta, cheeses, olive oils, herbs, wines and spirits too. All these are easy to add to your online Ocado shopping basket as there is a separate tab for all the Italian brands, allowing you to easily search your chosen product.
