    UmmBinat's Note:

    DD (toddler) had us try this one and we both declare it "really yummy!" Origanally posted for ZWT7, Sub-Saharan Africa. An easy dessert that is kid friendly yet upscale enough to serve adults. A different way to use bananas as a dessert topping. The orange sauce coats the bananas and brightens up vanilla ice cream and cake. With recipes like this, I’m not sure why you’d ever eat a plain ol’ banana split again! From, globaltableadventure.com

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Serves: 2

    Yield:

    Units: US | Metric

    • 118.29 ml orange juice (I used freshly squeezed)
    • 118.29 ml brown sugar
    • 14.79 ml lemon juice (optional, I did use freshly squeezed)
    • 2 slightly under-ripe baby bananas (NOTE poster used red bananas which are about 4 inches long)

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Heat orange juice, brown sugar, and lemon juice in a skillet for about 15 minutes on low (there should be small bubbles breaking the surface, but not quite a simmer). The orange juice will reduce and thicken into a syrup.
    2. 2
      Peel bananas and add to syrup. Cook for a few minutes per side, making sure to warm through.
    3. 3
      Serve immediately with ice cream, pound cake, or plain. Both would be all the better!
