Salted caramel ice-cream would do it for me. ( Think Banoffi) Like you, I'm not mad about bananas either so not something serve often. A strawberry sorbet could work in the middle with a touch of brandy or vodka to keep it a wee bit on the soft side perhaps.It would also go with the other flavours.

I hate bananas, but I pick them up on the "past their best buy date" for the girls. They love them. For me, it is the texture and smell. However, I do like banana bread--the only way I can stomach bananas.

Monkeys & bananas go together. But I really think, pancakes, chocolate and nuts and pie.

Hi menumaker! I knew we would meet eventually!

I think salted caramel is a great idea.

Bananas, caramel and cream, go very well together

I know this was a long time ago but I said I'd give a report so .....

I eventually went with caramel sorbet inside the banana, walnut and rum ice cream shell.

Friend said it went down well.

I still don't believe anything goes with bananas other than monkeys. Can you share your recipe?

Here is what I do with bananas. It works equally well on a BBQ or in the oven. (One banana per person - so multiply as required).

Split the skin of the banana along the inside curve and pull the skin away slightly.

Stab the banana with a fork, then drizzle with rum (of your choice).

Stash pieces of dark chocolate along the sides - between the skin and the banana.

Wrap in tin foil and heat on the BBQ or in the oven. Timings really depend on the size of the banana and how impatient you are feeling. But the banana should be soft - but not totally mushy. 15 - 20 minutes on the BBQ - 30 minutes in a hot oven?

Open up the parcel and serve with fresh whipped cream and/or ice cream.

Truly delicious!
