Baked bananas
  • Serves: 6

Woman's Weekly recipe Fancy a treat for pudding? The whole family will love these warm bananas topped with chocolate, cream and nuts

Ingredients

  • 6 ripe bananas
  • About 4-6 level tbsp clear honey, preferably in a squeezy bottle
  • 150g bar chocolate
  • Aerosol cream
  • 1-2 tbsp chopped, roasted hazelnuts

Use your favourite type of chocolate in this recipe - for adults, you might want to try a rich, dark chocolate; children usually prefer sweeter, milk chocolate. Also, try using a nutty chocolate or one containing fruit and nuts, to add more texture to the banana mash.

Method

  1. Set the oven to Gas Mark 6/200°C.
  2. Place the unpeeled bananas directly on the oven shelf and bake them for 15-20 minutes or until they have blackened all over. Carefully remove the bananas from the oven - they'll be extremely hot.
  3. Using a sharp knife, make a slit in the bananas, and then mash down the flesh in the centre slightly with a fork.
  4. Squeeze, or spoon, some honey inside the slit.
  5. Break the chocolate into pieces and place some inside each banana skin. Place a banana on each plate and pipe a swirl of aerosol cream on the side. Sprinkle chopped nuts over the banana and cream. Serve immediately.
