- Slice skin-on bananas in half, lengthwise. Sprinkle flesh with some brown sugar and Christmas spices (make a spice mix by lightly toasting and finely grinding 1 tsp each of black peppercorns, cloves, mace, all spice berries and a piece of cinnamon. Mix in a tsp of ground nutmeg if you don’t have mace) and place on a hot barbecue or grill skin-side down until bananas are caramelised on top and have softened.
- Peel into a sundae dish, add scoops of your favourite icecream, top with fresh berries, candied nut clusters and a drizzle of caramel or butterscotch sauce.
