It’s been a pink week for me! On Tuesday, I arrived to teach a private class at Cooks Warehouse and a present was waiting for me. The Brookhaven team knows me well – A “Glam Box” of Pink Lipsticks and Glosses were the perfect fun surprise! So in the spirit of unexpected gifts, fun and laughter, here’s one of my favorite desserts. So Fast, Easy, and Delicious, it’s a gift to you AND your family or guests.
Grilled Bananas with Pecans and Cinnamon
4 Ripe Bananas
¼ Cup Dark Brown Sugar
2 TB Cinnamon, plus more for garnish
1/2 Gallon Vanilla or Ginger Ice Cream or Yogurt
1/2 Cup Pecans, Chopped and Roasted
Slice the bananas, in their skins, in half crosswise and then lengthwise so each banana yields 4 pieces. In a small bowl, combine the brown sugar and cinnamon. Drizzle the honey on the cut sides of the bananas and sprinkle them with the cinnamon sugar. Let the bananas sit for 5 minutes.
Place the bananas, cut side down, on the center of grill. Grill for 2 minutes or until grill marks appear. Using a pair of tongs, turn them over and cook for 5 more minutes, or until the skin darkens and easily pulls away from the bananas. When done, place on a plate, and while still warm, dollop with a scoop of Vanilla Ice Cream, sprinkle with roasted Pecans and cinnamon. Serve Immediately.
