  • Ingredients


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.


4 fl oz (110 ml) good-quality vanilla ice-cream


You will also need a heavy-based saucepan.
