Spiced Bananas

With the weather being ideal for barbecues, what thoughts have you about a nice dessert best cooked on the fire? I suggest Spiced Bananas which also make a tasty, warming snack when grilled - especially with a shot of left-over rum!  Try them  this weekend.


Ingredients:- (serves 8)
8 bananas
2tbs lemon juice
8tbs brown sugar
1tsp cinnamon
50g butter
250g mascarpone cheese
2tbs rum
1tbs white sugar

  • Skin the bananas
  • Put each banana on a double piece of cooking foil.

  • Drizzle over the bananas the lemon juice and sprinkle 1 tablespoon of brown sugar on each.
  • Mix together the butter and cinnamon until creamy then spoon over the bananas.
  • Wrap each banana tightly in the foil and cook on the hot barbecue or under a medium grill for 10 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, make up the rum mascarpone cream. Mix the cheese, rum and white sugar together.
  • Unwrap the bananas and eat immediately with a 'dollop'(spoonful) of the rum mascarpone cream.
