Special Diet

  • 4 bananas
  • 125 g (4 oz) unsalted butter
  • ground cinnamon or freshly grated nutmeg, to decorate (optional)
  • vanilla ice cream, to serve
  • 125 g (4 oz) palm sugar
  • 125 ml (4 fl oz) double cream
  • lime juice, to taste

Peel the bananas and cut into quarters or in half lengthways. Melt the butter in a frying pan, add the bananas and cook over a medium-high heat for about 30 seconds on each side until lightly golden. Remove with a slotted spoon and transfer to a warmed dish.

Stir the sugar and cream into the pan and heat over a low heat until the sugar has dissolved. Simmer gently for 2–3 minutes until thickened. Add lime juice to taste.

Serve the bananas drizzled with the toffee sauce and with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Sprinkle with cinnamon or nutmeg to decorate, if you like.
