“Kind of embarrassing to call this a 'recipe'. I had made up a batch of caramel sauce one day that I had to use up - the rest was easy. Tastes wonderful!”
1 1/2 bananas per person

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 12 bananas, per adult cut into 1 1/2 inch pieces (we're greedy!)
  • 1 teaspoon butter, per serving
  • 2 tablespoons caramel sauce, per serving warmed slightly in microwave
  • whipped cream (I had the kind that comes in a can and whips prettily onto the dessert, direct)


  1. Melt the butter in a small non-stick pan until melted and foamy.
  2. Add the banana pieces and saute, turning occasionally, until soft and browned in places (about 3-4 minutes).
  3. Distribute bananas amongst as many bowls as people you are serving.
  4. Top with 2 tablespoonfuls of caramel sauce (homemade is best!) per serving.
  5. Dollop freshly whipped cream or, if you're lazy like I am, use one of those spritzy can thingies (what are they called?).
  6. You've got a hot dessert on the table in about 6 minutes from start to finish.
  7. Can't beat that and it tastes great too.
