This recipe is from Good and Cheap.
Good and Cheap is a gorgeous cookbook for people with limited income, particularly on a $4/day food stamps budget. The PDF is free (ahora en Español!) and has been downloaded more than 1,000,000 times. I have more cookbooks, too!
These bananas—cooked in just a bit of caramel—are crispy and gooey on the outside and almost like a soft pudding inside. Sweet, messy, and irresistible. They make a great topping for ice cream or cake or pudding, but are also lovely on their own. Caramelized bananas are a really wonderfully inexpensive, satisfying treat if you are craving something sweet, but not wanting to spend much.
- 2 bananas peeled and split in half
- 1 Tbsp butter
- 2 Tbsp brown sugar
