Kind of embarrassing to call this a 'recipe'. I had made up a batch of caramel sauce one day that I had to use up - the rest was easy. Tastes wonderful!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 12 bananas, per adult cut into 1 1/2 inch pieces (we're greedy!)
  • 1 teaspoon butter, per serving
  • 2 tablespoons caramel sauce, per serving warmed slightly in microwave
  • whipped cream (I had the kind that comes in a can and whips prettily onto the dessert, direct)

Directions

  1. Melt the butter in a small non-stick pan until melted and foamy.
  2. Add the banana pieces and saute, turning occasionally, until soft and browned in places (about 3-4 minutes).
  3. Distribute bananas amongst as many bowls as people you are serving.
  4. Top with 2 tablespoonfuls of caramel sauce (homemade is best!) per serving.
  5. Dollop freshly whipped cream or, if you're lazy like I am, use one of those spritzy can thingies (what are they called?).
  6. You've got a hot dessert on the table in about 6 minutes from start to finish.
  7. Can't beat that and it tastes great too.

great combination Evelyn whether its a recipe or not. Have you tried baking the bananas instead of frying them. You only get 4 stars cause its not really anything that you make. Ann

My husband and I loved this! I used far less butter (probably more like a teaspoon or so) and I didn't measure the caramel sauce either. I just poured it on and it was just fantastic! It really makes such a nice dessert. I know I will be making this many more times. Thanks for such a great recipe!

This was good and easy to make. I didn't add the butter but my son and I enjoyed this. It was something different for us.
