roasted bananas

We had dinner with our Tall Short person last night.  Life has not shown her the straightest path lately and she needed some comfort food.  For us, that was Japanese.  My Beloved decided that he needed dessert and had something called Monkeys Gone Crazy.  It had bananas, chocolate, and ice cream.  I decided I wanted to make a dessert based on the banana and chocolate bit.  This is what happened:  roasted bananas with chocolate sauce.  I would have sworn up and down that I had already posted the chocolate sauce recipe but I could not find it when I searched so I will post it tomorrow.  But first, the roasted bananas.

Roasted Bananas

2 bananas

1/4 cup brown sugar

1/4 cup butter

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.

In an oven proof skillet, put the butter and melt over medium heat.  When melted, slice the peeled banana into it.  Add the brown sugar and cinnamon.  Stir a bit.  Put in the oven for ten minutes.  Pull out and stir.  Put back in the oven for another ten minutes.  

It should be all bubbly and fragrant.  Take out of the oven.  Split between two bowls.  Add chocolate sauce.

Incredible decadence!  

If you ate a big dinner, I can see where one banana would be enough for two.  We had my easy macaroni and cheese so we each had a banana to ourselves.

Oh I'm salivating Elizabeyta. I think I could even handle this delicacy without the choc sauce. I do love your recipes. Thanks for sharing this.

It is really quite lovely. I like it best when the weather is a bit cooler. :)
