Serving Change
  • 2
    ripe bananas, peels removed
  • 2
    bourbon or brandy
  • 2
    demerara or light brown sugar
  • 1
    vanilla extract
  • 1
    handful walnuts (or pecan nuts), roughly chopped
  • Double thick cream, for serving
  • 2
    oven-proof ramekins
  • 1
    baking tray
  • 1
    sheet tinfoil, doubled over, to fit the baking tray


Pre-heat your braai to the highest setting and line the baking tray with the tinfoil.

Slice the bananas and put the equivalent of 1 banana into each ramekin. Then divide the remaining ingredients between the ramekins, place on your lined baking tray and then onto your braai grill and cook for about 10 minutes, until golden and bubbling.

Serve as soon as possible with the double thick cream (or vanilla ice cream).

*If you would prefer not to use brandy, substitute this with about 1 Tbsp of fresh orange juice and a drizzle of honey.
