For the bananas

  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1lb raspberries


How to make barbecued bananas with honey and chocolate, vanilla ice cream

1. Take syringe and inject brandy into each banana. Wrap each in foil and place on BBQ for 5 minutes. Remove from BBQ and open foil. Split each banana down one side and brush honey all over.

2. Place piece of chocolate on top and re- wrap in foil. Heat should melt chocolate over banana. Peel banana from foil and place on individual plates to serve.

3. Serve with vanilla ice cream and sprinkle with ground cinnamon. Decorate with raspberry jus (see below)

4. For the raspberry jus, put water and sugar in pan and bring to the boil. Let simmer. Add raspberries and allow to boil down. Remove from heat and blend down. Consistency should be thick enough to decorate. To test consistency take a spoon and dip in jus, drizzle over plate and see how well it sticks to plate. If not thick enough, return to heat to reduce until reaches desired consistency. Use to decorate desert.
