You can't get a much easier dessert than this to prepare, unless you just go straight to the ice cream tub and slice raw bananas straight into it.


2 large [2 large] very firm bananas
1 tbsp [1 tbsp] soft brown sugar
2 tbsp [2 tbsp] pecan nuts, chopped
Please note this recipe contains nuts


Preheat oven: 180°C, 350°F, Gas 4

  1. Place the bananas in their skins on a baking sheet.
  2. Bake for 20-30 minutes, or until the peel goes black.
  3. Carefully remove bananas from their skins (hot banana seems to weld itself to skin and can cause a nasty burn). Place in one or two dishes, either whole or sliced into pieces.
  4. Sprinkle the soft brown sugar and pecan nuts on top. Leave for a few minutes for the sugar to melt slightly.
  5. The dessert could also be topped with ice-cream or whipped cream.
