Caramelized Bananas

What You Need

Under ripe Bananas, firm but not green

Granulated Sugar

What to Do

Heat a pan to 325-350 degrees


Slice Bananas in half or into quarters.


For a garnish on the plate, leave banana in peel.


Press the banana into the sugar and place in the pan


Cooking Tip: Do not move the banana for at least 2 minutes. Allowing the sugar to melt and caramelize and glaze the banana. If you’re taking the banana out of the peel, flip the banana to caramelize on all sides.

*Serve smaller pieces atop ice cream.


*Slice pieces of banana, and once you place them in the hot pan cover with pancake batter, to make caramelized banana pan cakes.
