Here's to eating your dessert before dinner. Or, in this case, instead of dinner. At least I didn't need to feel too badly: 2/3 of this was fruit!
Baked Bananas with Toffee Sauce
(recipe from The Best Ever Three & Four Ingredient Cookbook)
Things pilfered from the pantry:
4 large bananas
5 tablespoons light brown sugar
5 tablespoons heavy cream
5 tablespoons water
- Bake unpeeled bananas at 350OF for 20-25 minutes, or just until skin is totally blackened.
- Over burner, dissolve brown sugar in water completely. Add cream, boil, and cook 10-15 minutes, or until sauce is thickened and even in color.
Remove from heat and let stand at least 5 minutes before use, to allow it to become tacky.
- Cool bananas for 5-10 minutes. Split bananas lengthways with a very sharp knife. Take care, the insides will be very mushy/runny and the skin will be tough, a very sharp knife will help to pierce the skin quickly and without malforming the flesh.
- Serve with ice cream and drizzle toffee sauce over top.
