Caramel Glazed Bananas

This is a fun pudding to make. It's really quick and simple to do -  perfect pudding for any informal weekend barbecue/outdoor meal.

If you own a chefs blow torch then you can add a bit of drama and excitement to the preparation - kids love watching this! but if you don't you can just pop the bananas under a hot grill.

As I said it's really easy and I'm not going to give a recipe just do this.........

Split the bananas in half, brush with a little melted butter (flavoured with vanilla paste if you want)

Sprinkle over soft brown sugar - about a dessertspoon per banana half.

Then either pop them under the grill until the sugar melts and turn to caramel or light the blow torch and burn away! if your using the blowtorch keep it moving don't concentrate on any one place and makesure you using a haevy based tray - and please, please, please don't do this on a wooden surface - my kitchen table still bears the scare of my eldest stepson having a go at this -unsupervised and unbeknown to anyone I might add!

Once they are lovely and caramelised, place on plates and serve, whilst they are still piping hot, with a big blob of ice-cream, cream or cold custard.

I served ours with a honey crunch ice-cream.

Have a great weekend
