    For the topping


    1. 1
      Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Prick the sweet potatoes all over with a fork and put them on a roasting pan. On another roasting pan prick bananas and lay out in a single layer. Roast sweet potatoes for 45 minutes until very soft and roast bananas for 25 minutes. Remove both pans from the oven and allow to cool slightly.
    2. 2
      In a small sauce pot heat cream with bay leaf until reduced by half, then keep warm until ready to puree potatoes and bananas.
    3. 3
      When the potatoes are cool enough to handle, scoop out the flesh into the bowl of a food processor. Add peeled bananas. Season with salt, add butter, cream, cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla and puree until super smooth. Pour into an oven-proof gratin dish.
    4. 4
      Make the topping by combining flour, cold butter and brown sugar in the food processor and pulse until you have the texture of coarse bread crumbs. Sprinkle on top of the puree and place under the broiler until golden brown and crispy, about 4-5 minutes.
    5. 5
    6. 6
      You can roast the potatoes and bananas ahead of time, then put it all together just before serving. Then heat it up in the oven.

      Thank you so much for sharing Debbwl. I enjoyed this tasty dish very much. It was a little time consuming, but definitely worth the extra effort. I really enjoyed the flavor of the banana, orange rind and sweet potatoes, the spices, bay leafs, sugar and vanilla, made this dish sing. I enjoyed it with a spicy red shrimp curry. I used the dish as the base, added a little rice on top and drowned it in red curry, shrimp and vegetables. It was incredible. I also enjoyed it the next day as a side for fried chicken. :)

      Recipe was a little confusing. No directions for adding the cinnamon, nutmeg and orange zest. Assumed it was to be added with all other ingredients. Would not make it again.
