Butterscotch Bananas

This is a lovely sticky sauce – just made for bananas, especially if you serve it hot, poured over bananas and ice-cream.

Equipment

You will also need a heavy-based saucepan.

 

This recipe is from Delia Smith's One is Fun!

Method

Place the butter, sugar and syrup in a heavy-based saucepan, then over a very low heat simply allow the ingredients slowly to dissolve and liquefy – this can take about 10-15 minutes.

Then stir to make sure all the sugar is dissolved and, when it is, turn off the heat and add the cream.

Then arrange the ice-cream and sliced banana in a serving dish, and pour the hot sauce over.

A few chopped nuts would be a nice addition.
