Baked Bananas with Caramel Sauce Recipe
  • Preheat oven to 350°.  Do not peel bananas. Put them on a baking sheet or other oven-proof container and bake 20 minutes. Bananas should be soft and very dark when done.
  • While the bananas bake, make the sauce. In a small saucepan, bring water, salt and brown sugar to a boil. Add cream and cook 5 minutes.
  • Do not peel the baked bananas. Slice them lengthways, leaving the halves attached at the stem end and arrange on serving plates. Add a scoop of ice cream to each plate and drizzle warm sauce over. Garnish, if you wish, with a few berries or shavings of chocolate. Serve immediately.
