Banana Doofah

Font Size:

We think we’ve found the easiest cooked dessert in the world to make. Try the delicious banana-almond combination in Banana Doofah and if you can come up with an easier recipe, which is just as tasty, please let us know.

Ingredients (serves 2)
1/2 cup almond meal
1/2 glass water
2 large ripe bananas
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
Custard to serve

Peel the bananas and cut them into thirds crossways, so that you end up with six short chunks. Use a pastry brush to spread the water over the bananas. Spread the almond meal out over a plate, and roll the wet banana chunks through the almond meal. Try to completely cover each banana chunk.
Next, heat the oil in a saucepan over a medium-high heat. Add the bananas and cook for approximately four minutes, or until they are golden brown. Drain the bananas on a paper towel and serve with custard.

    I sugggest do not cook in vegetable oil if you want tio save your health & the margerine & Jam in Stillman’s recipe sounds yuk, and most unhealthy too much sugar in the jam & too much plastic in the marg.- sorry, but this recipe made in a different oil sounds fine thanks.
    I will try iit cooked in my bran oil.

    I have an easier recipe….1 banana per person…leave in skin and cook on barby (or oven) until skin is black and banana is hot and soft, then make one cut in skin down length and open cut and add favourite filling e.g. cream, ice cream, rum, honey etc… favourite is Baileys Irish Cream, yum…serve in skin with spoon to eat…you can easily offer a different filling to each banana to make it really individual….its a great last minute dessert as it needs no prparation at all…..
