Caramelized Grilled Banana with Condensed Milk

grilled banana with condensed milk
A simple yet decadent treat for a sloth x glutton crossover like me.

grilled banana with condensed milk
Preheat oven to 200C. Get some super ripe bananas (I like using mini or emperor bananas as they are not mushy), peel the skin and halve them length-wise, place them flat side down on a lightly greased pan, on top of each one, add a tiny bit of butter (about 0.5cm dollop). Put the pan on the top rack of the oven, grill until gloriously golden. Remove from oven, drizzle some condensed milk over them (I used both original and chocolate condensed milk) and devour.

If only I had some cheddar to shave on top, it would've made the whole combo even more deliciously unreal. If you wanna improve the presentation (aka, not making them look like a pile of crap, like mine T_T), you can dust some powdered sugar, or serve it with ice cream, add a dainty piece of mint leaf etc.

As you can see, I didn't bother T_T

This is so simple that it's actually dangerous that I now know how to make it.

Whenever I mess up with my food I always like to say, "Who cares? As long as it tastes good!" ;).

Wow! Can we work together to export chocolate condensed milk around the world? Preferably a dark chocolate version, I reckon we'd be onto a winner!

Von said...
