Roasted Treacle Toffee Bananas

Roasted Treacle Toffee Bananas

Cooking bananas on a barbecue is super easy. You just wrap them in foil, place them on the grill when there’s space, and leave them there, turning once or twice, until you’re ready for pudding. Enjoy the lovely, gooey, sweet, brown-sugary centre with some cream or ice cream.

For how many? Makes 6

Ingredients

  • 50g unsalted butter, softened
  • 50g dark muscovado sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 6 bananas
  • clotted cream or vanilla ice cream, to serve

Instructions

Mix together the butter, sugar and vanilla extract. Cut into each banana through the skin, almost down to the bottom of the fruit. 

Divide the sugary vanilla butter between the bananas, pushing it down into the cut and spreading it out. Close up the fruit and wrap in a layer of foil. Barbecue, turning occasionally, until the fruit has softened and the butter and sugar have melted. Allow about 20 minutes, but you can leave them there for as long as you need to if the fire isn’t too hot. 

Serve with clotted cream or vanilla ice cream.
