Toffee-fudge Bananas with Toasted Nuts
The world record for making this recipe is not five minutes, but just three – it's quite simply the fastest dessert recipe I've ever come across. It's also amazingly good, and if it is conceivable that anybody on this earth does not love delectably thick Greek yoghurt, then you can make it just as well with whipped cream.
|2 large, ripe bananas|
|2 oz (50 g) Brazil nuts|
|1 lb 2 oz (500 g) Greek yoghurt|
|5 oz (150 g) molasses sugar|

You will also need 4 individual serving glasses, each with a capacity of 7 fl oz (200 ml).
This recipe is taken from How to Cook Book Two.
Right, on your marks, get ready… Pop the Brazil nuts, spread out on some foil, under the grill about 4 inches (10 cm) from the heat and put a timer on for 3 minutes (if you don't have a timer keep an eye on them, because they will burn if you forget them), then keep them to one side for later.
Now peel and slice the bananas into thin rounds and place them in a large bowl, then add the yoghurt and mix well.
Next, divide the mixture between the serving glasses and simply sprinkle the sugar equally over the 4 portions of banana. Now cover with clingfilm and leave in the fridge for about 3 hours – after this time the sugar will have transformed itself into lovely pools of fudge sauce.
Now all you need to do is chop the toasted nuts, sprinkle them on top, serve and wait for the compliments.

If I had a pound for every... goes the old cliche. So here it goes again. If only I had a pound for everyone who has praised this cake, rich pickings! Although it is made here with butter and lard, you could make it with spreadable butter.
Sounds odd, doesn't it? But you'll believe it when you try it. These are truly sensational – better than ice cream or a sorbet. First you bite into crisp frozen chocolate and then meet the beautifully fragrant iced banana. Heaven.
Rum-soaked fruit and bananas are combined in filo pastry for this wonderful strudel, which looks hugely impressive when served. Add some vanilla ice cream for a dessert to die for!
Rum-soaked raisins and rum in the syllabub mean that this recipe has an alcoholic kick to it… A really lovely dessert that's easy to make and will go down a treat.
This is a lovely sticky sauce – just made for bananas, especially if you serve it hot, poured over bananas and ice-cream.
Children and adults alike will love these cakes - perfect for a mid-morning snack or in a lunchbox.
Crunchy turrón, rich butterscotch sauce and vanilla ice cream combine to great effect in these lovely sundaes.
There are endless variations on the trifle theme, and this is the latest Delia version. It's wickedly rich and quite wonderful – not for an everyday event, but perfect sometimes for those really special days. This is best made the day you want to...
