Grilled Bananas with Caramel
    Grilled Bananas with Caramel


    Servings: 6
    Prep Time: 10 minutes
    Cook Time: 25 minutes
    Total Time: 35 minutes
    Times are approximate


    1 1/2 cups sugar
    1 cup heavy cream
    2 tablespoons unsalted butter, cut into pieces
    1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    Pinch of salt
    2 tablespoons packed light brown sugar
    1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
    2 tablespoons honey
    6 firm but ripe bananas
    6 scoops vanilla ice cream


    *Make caramel*: Stir sugar and 1/2 cup water in a pan over medium-low heat until sugar dissolves. Raise heat to medium-high. Watching carefully, boil syrup without stirring until it is a dark amber color, 10 to 15 minutes. Remove from heat and carefully pour in cream (mixture will bubble up and splatter). Reduce heat to low; cook, stirring constantly, until mixture thickens and becomes smooth, 2 to 5 minutes. Remove from heat; whisk in butter, vanilla and salt.

    In a bowl, mix brown sugar and cinnamon.

    Warm honey in microwave for 15 seconds.

    Preheat grill to medium-high. Cut unpeeled bananas in half lengthwise. Brush cut sides with honey; sprinkle with sugar mixture. Oil grill. Place bananas on grill, cut sides up. Cook until bananas are tender and flesh pulls away from skin, 3 to 4 minutes.

    Using 2 spoons, gently remove 2 banana halves from peels. Place 2 halves in a bowl, top with ice cream and drizzle with caramel. Repeat with remaining bananas, ice cream and caramel.
