My mom makes delicious caramelized strawberries, which go wonderfully with ice creams. Inspiration came, when reminiscing about them today :) I wanted a dessert that would be sweet and fresh. Also, in this gray and rainy December afternoon, the fact that it is served warm was a greeeat plus!

Ingredients(for 2p):

  • 2 bananas(preferably a bit unripened)
  • 3 tablespoons of brown sugar
  • 3 tablespoons of water
  • 1 tablespoon of butter
  • 1 lemon
  • mint leaves
  • 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract(few drops)

Sauce:

Squeeze juice out of one lemon and mix with chopped mint leaves:

The magic:

Heat up butter on a frying pan, add sugar, water and vanilla extract.

Cut the bananas into slices and place them on the pan. Fry on one side for about 2min, turn and spread the lemon sauce on top side of the bananas. Turn them again and again apply the sauce. Fry for 2-3minutes more.

Serve warm, decorated with mint leaves.

Bon appetit!
