4 people


  • 4 large, firm bananas (ordinary, no plantains)
  • 1 tbsp. rum
  • 125 gr. dark brown sugar
  • 50 gr. Butter
  • Lemon juice (bottle)
  • 200 gr. Ice-cream


Measure the ingredients off. Melt the butter, add the sugar and cook over a low heat (this took very long, so we turned up the heat) to melt the sugar. Add a dash of lemon juice along with rum. Let this simmer a few minutes. Divide the banana into pieces, cut them lengthways and put them in the casserole. Let these few min. Firing process.

Remove with a slotted spoon banana pieces into the pan and arrange on 4 plates. Spread the remaining sauce with creative panache on the board. Add a generous scoop of ice-cream to it and voila!
