Baby Bananas in Orange Sauce

Serves 2

Bananas in orange sauce is a fresh, summery way to use bananas as a dessert topping. When we made the Baked Brown Sugar Bananas for Antigua and Barbuda (made with brown sugar, rum and butter) I didn’t think they could be beat, but these west African bananas are totally different and just as yummy!!

Ingredients:

1/2 cup orange juice
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 Tbsp lemon juice (optional)
2 slightly under-ripe bananas

NOTE: We used red bananas which are about 4 inches long, you can also use baby bananas or regular bananas.

Method:

1. Heat orange juice, brown sugar, and lemon juice in a skillet for about 15 minutes on low (there should be small bubbles breaking the surface, but not quite a simmer). The orange juice will reduce and thicken into a syrup.

2. Peel bananas and add to syrup. Cook for a few minutes per side, making sure to warm through.

3. Serve immediately with ice cream, pound cake, or plain.
