Serves 4 | Preparation time 5 minutes | Cooking time 5-10 minutes
WHAT YOU’LL NEED
3-4 ripe bananas, halved lengthways
4 tsp dark brown sugar (or honey) ½ tsp ground nutmeg
1 tsp vanilla extract
½ Tbsp butter
For the Chocolate Ganache
200g dark chocolate, roughly chopped
1 heaped Tbsp mascarpone
WHAT TO DO
1. Lay your banana halves skin-side down over coals, or a hot griddle pan
2. Mix together the brown sugar, nutmeg and vanilla and spoon it over the cut side of the bananas. Leave to cook skin-side down for another 2-3 minutes, allowing the sugar and vanilla to be absorbed. Turn the bananas over and cook for another 2-3 minutes on the cut side before removing.
3. Meanwhile, to make the ganache, add the chocolate and cream to a double boiler and heat until the chocolate has melted and the mixture is glossy and silky.
4. Serve the bananas immediately with the chocolate ganache.
