Baked banana's


  • 4 firm bananas
  • 1 tablespoon plus 2 teaspoons melted butter
  • salt
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons firmly packed brown sugar


Preheat oven to 375°.
Peel bananas and place in a well greased baking dish. Brush generously with butter and sprinkle lightly with salt. Sprinkle brown sugar evenly over bananas. Bake for 15 to 18 minutes, or until bananas are tender. Serve with syrup or a dessert sauce, if desired.
Serves 2 to 4.
I also do something similar with brown sugar and honey, coat the bananas with butter, sprinkle brown sugar over then and then drizzle with honey, bake for about 15 minutes, To prevent the sugar burning I put some foil losely over the dish for 10 minutes then remove it and allow the sugar and honey to caramelise.


  1. My favourite ? banana fritters using a splash of vinegar in the batter instead of an egg

  2. Add a slurp of rum before you cook the bananas. Delicious!

    I'm reminded of the Bananas Foster we had while on our honeymoon in New Orleans. It was set on fire at the table to toast the banana, meld the flavors, and burn off the alcohol. It has white rum along with banana liqueur, brown sugar, a dash of cinnamon,and is topped with vanilla ice cream and the warm liquid is spooned over all. YUM! DH has made it at home with brandy and that is also delicious.

    Putting bananas on the grocery list right now!
