Nigella Lawson and I have lots of things in common. Nono, I don't look like her, I don't cook like her, and I certainly am no domestic goddess (so what the heck am I talking about, things in common?). Ehm...I was not proud of this until I saw Nigella doing it (or pretend to be doing it) on TV, but I often get hungry at midnights and sneaked to my fridge for something to eat. No, a cup of warm milk or an apple would not help.
Things get worse when I had company and stayed up well over midnight having Top Chef or Project Runway marathon. I want something filling, satisfying, sinful, and ofcourse, easy to prepare, as my mates cannot be "paused" for too long. ChoNanaNut Toasties were the perfect candidate to fulfill my requirements.
All you need:
- White/grain bread
- Butter (I like salted butter for sweet vs salty mix)
- Peanut butter
- Chocolate sauce/nutella (I used Hershey's Chocolate Sauce)
- Condensed milk
- Bananas, sliced
- Ice Cream of your choice (I used Haagen Dasz Macadamia Nut Ice Cream)
Just slather everything (except ice cream) on a slice of bread generously and dump it into the oven until the bread turned crisp. You can cut them small for finger food. Scoop the ice cream on top.
The thing about toasts is, you can slap pretty much anything on top of it, and it will taste fun-bloody-tastic (I read this here>Mr.Commitment, a novel by Mike Gayle). So experiment.
Deetha of Mlebu Pawon (Into the Kitchen) made cheese toasts, she called it Roti Bakar ala kadarnya (Simple Toasts)
