"Oh dear, even my desserts have to be cooked on the BBQ! Although I've said the recipe is two serves I must admit the photo is actually the full quantity that I managed to get through myself."

  1. YUMMMM!! I quartered my bananas & cooked them up in my cast iron skillet as my grill is buried in snow. YUMMM!!! Made for Aussie Swap 2/14.
  2. OMG is right!!!!<br/>This dessert is so decadent and yummy! I could eat the whole thing myself in one sitting. lol<br/>A truly easy, yet impressive recipe! Great for when youre having a bbq with friends or when you need a pick me up. lol<br/>I have bbqed banans with honey before, but never thought of adding ice cream to it. What a wonderful addition, though! I luved the hot cold contrast and the vanilla touch.<br/>THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing this true classic with us, Peter!<br/>Made and reviewed for the Aus/NZ Recipe Swap August 2010.
  3. Sometimes in life, its the simplest things that are the best and let me say this recipe is one of the simplest and best. Follwed the recipe exactly and the family just adored this. Thanks Pater.
  4. I'm off teleprompter, so let me say...this is dang good! Made for #35 A/NZ Recipe Swap.
  5. We LOVE bananas and I'd really love to try these BBQd but sadly ;) I am BBQ-less. They were, however, fabulously flavoursome - as I had every expectation that they would be! - panfried. I panfried them in a little butter in a non-stick pan. The combined flavours of the honey, sugar and cinnamon: pure magic! Thank you, Peter, for this simple to make heavenly dessert. I can well imagine the Olympian gods, distracted for the while from pursuing earthly maidens, tucking into these! We enjoyed them with generous dollops of creamy Greek yoghurt. Perhaps that's where my images of Zeus came from? Made for ZWT 5.


<p>I live close Hobart in Tasmania, a wonderful part of Australia but a little chilly in winter so be sure to book your holiday for summer! I'm self-employed in the embedded electronics area and being at home most of the day gives me plenty of time to prepare those recipes with long preparation and cooking times. As most of my clients are either interstate or overseas I get to occasionally catch up with them and enjoy their local restaurants, always nice to have someone else paying the bills! <br /> <br />As well as food I'm partial to the odd beer &amp; wine, so often like to go to a local pub and catch some local bands. No need for an alarm clock in the morning, my cat Molly likes her breakfast at 8:00AM sharp and makes an effective alarm! Lately I've been starting to get into some digital photography so you might be seeing a few additional recipe shots on Zaar... <br /> <br /><a href=> <br /><img src= alt= /></a></p>
