FILLING
2 cups sour cream
1 lb cream cheese
1 1/4 cups sugar
3 eggs
2 egg yolks
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/4 cup banana liqueur
1 tablespoon Creme de Cacao
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 cups pureed ripe bananas, mixed with
3 tablespoons lemon juice

Put dollops of banana puree on top of fill and then swirl with a wooden skewer or a thin knife. Wrap the bottom of the sprinform pan in aluminum foil so that water cannot leak inches.
