Ingredients

  • 6 large ripe bananas
  • 200g dark chocolate
  • 2 tbsp golden syrup
  • 2 tbsp soft light brown sugar
  • Knob of butter
  • 1 tbsp double cream
  • 6 scoops vanilla ice cream
  • 50g hazelnuts or pecans, chopped

Method

  1. Put the bananas, unpeeled, on a wire rack over the fire (or in a frying pan) and cook for 5-10 minutes, turning occasionally, until the skins are black.
  2. Melt the chocolate, syrup, sugar, butter and cream together in a small saucepan to make a shiny sauce, then set aside.
  3. Once the bananas are cooked, allow to cool for a few minutes, then put on serving plates, split open the skins and add a generous dollop of chocolate sauce and a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Sprinkle with the chopped nuts to serve.
