Crust: Combine the ingredients. Press into a buttered 9″ spring form pan.
Refrigerate 5 minutes, then bake for 7 minutes in a 350 F (180 C) preheated
oven. Cool.

Filling: Cream the cheese with the sugar. Beat in the eggs one at a time.
Stir in the vanilla. Divide the batter into 3 parts. Blend the banana into
one part. Blend the strawberry into a second part, and the chocolate and
cocoa into the third part.

Pour the chocolate batter into the shell, bake for 25 minutes. Carefully
pour the banana batter over the chocolate and bake for an additional 25
minutes. Pour the strawberry batter over and bake for 30 minutes. Turn oven
off, prop the door open and leave the cake in for 30 additional minutes.
Transfer to a cooling rack, cool to room temperature. Chill in refrigerator
for 8 hours or overnight. Serve with chocolate sauce.
