“Another recipe from Ballindalloch Castle, this sounds wonderful and will look like you really do know what you are doing in the kitchen - with minimum effort!!!! My kind of dish. Don't be frightened of the caramel, it is easy to do, just keep it warm while you work with it.”

Now place a third sheet of filo on top and again brush with melted butter, then a fourth with melted butter and dust with 1 tbls icing sugar. Repeat this to create another pile with the rest of the filo.

  4. Heat the caster sugar in a heavy bottomed pan over high heat until dissolved then add banana chunks and cook for 1 minute.
  5. To assemble place a circle of filo on each plate, top with double cream, then a spoonful of bananas then another filo, cream and bananas. Top with third filo and dust with icing sugar. Drizzle a little of the caramel on the plate and decorate with a few segments of orange if desired.
