Instant Cheesecake

So I made this in two version the first was with caramelised bananas which to be honest I found too rich, but the strawberries instead work really well. A great dinner party desert that you can create in minutes but still looks impressive and brilliant way to use up all those leftover strawberries now Wimbledon has ended.
