This Cheesecake Tastes Just Like Banana Cue
Caramelized sugar, check.
(SPOT.ph) If you grew up eating banana cue, then you'll know that it's a snack like any other—what with the way it pairs the tanginess of bananas with the deep flavors of caramelized sugar. Now imagine its signature taste but in a dense and creamy cheesecake format. Newsflash: you're not just dreaming! Such a treat exists, in the form of Islas Coffee & Panaderya's Banana Que Cheesecake (P650/six-by-two inch tin).
Served in an easy-to-store tin can, this standout dessert has ripe bananas blended into a cheesecake base on a buttery graham crust, topped with a burnt-sugar glaze that makes for a striking charred appearance. The resulting cheesecake is as rich and creamy as it is vibrant-tasting with the distinct flavor of fresh bananas, rounded out by the caramelized note of the glaze.
Aside from the Banana Cue Cheesecake, Islas Coffee & Panaderya also offers distinctly Filipino cheesecake flavors. Their Bibingka Cheesecake (P650/six-by-two inch tin) will bring on the Christmas feels, while the Calamansi Cheesecake (P650/six-by-two inch tin) is the perfect refreshing dessert after a heavy meal. Islas also offers whole and ground coffee beans, like Katha blend (P240/250 grams, P400/500 grams) with Arabica, Robusta, and Excelsa variants, Ube Two-Cheese Pan de Sal (P250/dozen).
