The perfect end to a summer barbecue!
50g butter, softened
40g light brown sugar
6 unpeeled bananas
Ice cream, to serve (we like coconut)
Mix the butter with the sugar . Make a split through the inside curve of each banana skin – be careful not to cut all the way through.
Spread a spoonful of the spiced butter inside each skin.
Place the bananas, curved-side up – so the butter doesn’t leak when it melts – onto individual sheets of foil large enough to wrap them completely. Crimp up the foil to make a parcel, and then put onto the embers for 15 mins, turning once.
The bananas should be sticky and caramelized, but check one and cook for longer if necessary.
Serve with a scoop of ice cream.
