Puffed Bananas and Caramel

"From James Reeson Alive and Cooking. A good way to use up scraps of puff pastry, I've listed 1/2 sheet of puff pastry cut into strips but James used some scraps that he had frozen from other recipes and thawed them. Times are estimated. Please also note that in Australia pre-rolled pastry sheets are about 22/23 cm square."

  • Dust with icing sugar, then wrap the pastry around the length of the banana.

    Love how simple this dessert is!! I'm obsessed with bananas, so knew I would love this and I wasn't disappointed! The caramel sauce is just beautiful as well, the perfect accompaniment to the flaky, sweet bananas!

With the demise of the forums and with no more interaction on site with what was a great community and it was a pleasure to get to know so many of you over the years and to have had the privilege of meeting some of you in person. For me now this is just another recipe site like to many on the net, it has lost its specialness, such a pity especially when Scripps changed the name from Recipezaar to Food.com and made this statement sorry cannot replicate here as considered invalid but they basically said yes the community was valuable hence .com was short for community but it was a pack of lies as they were not willing to put the money into that community and got rid of the forums which was the community so for .com has become .crap.
