This cheesecake was one of the best cheesecakes I ever tasted. Make it in a 10" spring form pan because 9" is too small.
This cheesecake has it all! Banana, chocolate, pineapple and strawberry are just a few of the flavors that stand out in this dessert reminiscent of your all-time favorite ice cream sundae.
