Caramelized Banana With Honey, Mascarpone and Mint

READY IN: 5mins
Recipe by Chef floWer

A warm banana desert, with a creamy sweet minty sauce that requires only four ingredients. Banana needs to be under-ripe and please do not substitute the ingredients this will dramatically change the flavour and outcome of the recipe. Little Miss (DD) who is lactose intolerant and shouldn't be eating this desert was trying to lick the bowl clean. Original recipe comes from Better Home & Garden Magazine - November 2005 issue

I'm withholding stars because nobody liked this. :( BOOHOO. I was so looking forward to this dessert, too. I blame the bananas - they were TOO green - very starchy & unappealing. Cooking didn't help them. I'm going to make this again in a few days when the bananas are riper. I'll be back......made for the 2/08 Aussie Swap. ETA: I remade this with bananas that were a bit overripe,lol. Delicious & very sweet. The mascarpone makes a nice sauce & the mint adds a lovely flavor. The kids weren't thrilled with this dish, though.
