I do not see a lot of Banana recipes (other than breads or muffins) around the net. Bananas make a wonderful dessert and it is equally delicious hot or cold.
Next time you have some extra bananas leftover, try this quick recipe. Use firm, not bruised or over-ripe bananas in this dessert.
Caramelised Banana with Yoghurt
1 roll Frozen Puff Pastry, defrosted
3 - 4 Firm Bananas, sliced
1/2 cup Orange Juice
4 TB Muscovado Sugar
Milk, to brush pastry
Almond Slivers, to decorate
1 TB Redcurrant Jelly, to decorate and to add extra flavor
Plain Yoghurt, to serve
1.) Pre-heat the oven to 200 deg C (400 deg F) - Line a baking sheet with baking paper.
2.) Roll out the Puff Pastry into a rectangular or square shape - cut 1 centimeter off all the edges - brush a little water on the edges and the cut-off pieces - place the cut-off pieces on top of the large sheet - cut away any excess - you will now have a border.
3.) Place the pastry on the baking sheet - drizzle the Banana slices with the Orange Juice and arrange the slices on the pastry - sprinkle the Muscovado Sugar over the Banana and drizzle some more Orange Juice over.
4.) Brush the pastry with a little Milk and bake 20 - 25 minutes until golden brown and puffed.
5.) Immediately after removal from the oven - sprinkle over the Almond Slivers, and add drops of Redcurrant Jelly (the jelly will melt from the heat of the dish)
Serve warm with Plain Yoghurt !
