There’s nothing quite like a sweet treat to end your dinner and sometimes friends stop by last minute (or let’s be honest you NEED a treat and don’t want to make a grocery store run!). This recipe is the perfect one to whip up in a hurry.
While it works great with any bananas after testing we have found that for the absolute best results, you want to use bananas that are just a hair too green for normal snacking. The firmness softens in the hot pan and with all that sweet syrup coating them you can’t tell they aren’t as sweet. This lends the perfect texture with that crispy caramelized side and just enough resistance that they stay intact.
If you do have more ripe bananas or even over ripe bananas they won’t be able to caramelize quite as well without breaking down in the sauce. But between you and me...I still ate those tests too and they were completely delicious too!
