Baked banana cheese cake is a lovely dessert for banana lovers.I have not added any topping
but you could add any type of topping to it ,to match the banana taste.Toppings like caramel
syrup,chocolate syrup, orange/lemon syrup or ganache are really good.You could also serve it
with ice-cream or fresh cream .The same banana filling (excluding cheese cake ing.)can be
used to make banana sponge cake,with fresh cream or chocolate,or caramel icings.
So now for the recipe.

4 tblsp.orange juice
4-5 bananas (not tooo ripe)
