Ms. Czjai, with her post "Jack Skellington Cupcakes", on her blog: The Rebel Sweetheart.

This is perfect for Halloween! Here at home we really don't practice it, but I wouldn't mind sinking my teeth into those scary (but adorable) cupcakes! Food is food, right? lol. Want to know the recipe? Click on the shot to see Ms. Czjai's post.

Since it is a semestral break, I thought I'd encourage my sons to help me in the kitchen. My youngest said he'd like to make puto (steamed rice cakes) again, but I found out we didn't have the necessary ingredients. While rummaging, we had most of the ingredients for a no-bake topping, though. But we had lots of saba bananas (plantain). Yup, you guessed it right: Banana (Saba) No-Bake Cheesecake. :P

{The recipe below is the same one that I have been using for all of my no-bake cheesecakes; forgot where I got it, sorry. but it works!)

....and ripe, sliced, fried saba (plantain) bananas.


  • Mix first four ingredients, then pack in the container where you plan to put your cheesecake. Reserve some as topping. Chill.
  • Combine the remaining ingredients except the bananas. Once mixed thoroughly, add to the chilled crust.
  • Bananas must be really ripe, or you might want to slice them into bite-size pieces. You might want to cook them further, too: add water, sugar, vanilla, and the sliced bananas then simmer for around fifteen to thirty minutes. Make sure it's cool before using it as a topping. Drizzle the remaining crushed graham cracker mix.
  • Chill before serving.

My sons and I had a fun time making this. They just think it's weird using plantain bananas as a topping. lol. They loved it, though. Me, too. Well, we do love our cheesecakes around here. :P

I have always been wary of moscuvado sugar. It's not the sugar, just my taste buds probably. But this recipe looks wonderfully tempting. And I love saging in many ways so exploring this should be easy. A nice weekend to you, Maiylah.

@Jenn: so true!

@Hazel: i was wary of muscovado sugar while growing up, too. my mom said that it was "dirty". lol. however, after reading up about it, i guess i like it better than the processed ones. doesn't go too well with some of the recipes, though (because it turns the finished products brown). :P

@Ms. Oggi: i hope you get to try it soon!

@Mr. Nick: thank you, too!

@unknown specimen: lol, no worries! am not mad! :)
