Mascarpone-cheesecake with raspberries and bananas

Normally this cake is made by my friend Eve. She's the specialist making it, and every time, when I have eaten it, I feel that I could eat the whole cake... It's just so good! The original recipe has only bananas inside it, but Eve invented the new version with raspberries which is even better. I'm thankful to Eve for sharing the recipe with me, and this is how my cake turned out. I made it during this weekend for the sauna evening with our neighbours.

Eve's Mascarpone Cake

You need:
For the bottom -
175 crushed Digestive biscuits
50 grams of melted butter
1 tablespoon of honey

For the filling -
250 grams of Mascarpone cheese
2 dl 35% of cream
50 grams of sugar
lemon (about 3 tablespoon of its juice)
2 bananas
100 grams of raspberries (frozen ones can be used)
25 grams of dark chocolate
25 grams of white chocolate

How to do it?
Crush the biscuits, mix them with melted butter and honey. Press it to the bottom of a 20 cm (or 24 cm) cake tin (which can be opened). Keep in the refrigerator. For the filling, whip mascarpone cheese, cream and sugar with a wooden spoon. Add the juice of a lemon, banana slices and half of the raspberries. Pour the mixture to the cake tin.
For decoration, grate (or melt) the chocolate on top together with remaining raspberries.
Keep it in the cold, at least for an hour!
