DIRECTIONS

  • 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.
  • Peel bananas and add to syrup. Cook for a few minutes per side, making sure to warm through.
  • Serve immediately with ice cream, pound cake, or plain. Both would be all the better!
