Estimated values based on one serving size.
- Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C).
- In a large mixing bowl, use a fork to mash the ripe bananas.
- Whisk in the egg, followed by vegetable oil and milk. Mix until combined.
- Add in the yellow cake mix, being careful to not overmix.
- Use a rubber spatula to gently fold in the chocolate chips. Set aside.
- In a shallow saucepan, set over medium heat, add the butter and brown sugar, and stir constantly with a wooden spoon until the mixture turns into golden brown syrup, about 5 minutes.
- Pour the syrup into a 9-inch (20-cm) round cake pan. Place the sliced bananas into a single layer on top of the syrup.
- Divide the cake batter among the banana pan, and another greased 9-inch (20-cm) cake pan.
- Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean from the center.
- Once the banana bottom cake is cool to touch, invert onto a cooling rack set on top of a parchment paper-lined baking sheet. Leave the second cake to cool to room temperature inside the pan.
- In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the cream cheese and sugar until light and fluffy.
- Beat in the eggs, one at a time. Add in the sour cream and vanilla extract, and mix until combined.
- Pour the cheesecake batter into the cooled cake in the pan. Cover the bottom of the pan with two sheets of foil and place into a larger baking dish.
- Fill the baking dish with water until it comes 1 inch (2 cm) up the side on the cake pan.
- Bake for 1 hour. Turn the heat off and open the oven door and let cool for one hour. Refrigerate the cake for 4 hours.
- To assemble, remove the cheesecake from the springform pan. Top the cake with the cooled banana fosters cake.
