    Quick and delicious if unusual dessert that will be a hit; probably more suited to adults than children. Lightly fried bananas topped with maple syrup and black pepper.

    Preparation:5min  ›  Cook:7min  ›  Ready in:12min 

    1. Slice bananas into 1.5cm thick slices, fry at moderate heat turning once until soft (about 5 minutes). Then add maple syrup or honey to coat the banana slices.
    2. Meanwhile crush the pepper very coarsely in mortar and pestle.
    3. Serve bananas on a plate on it a bowl, sprinkle with crushed pepper and a dollop of cream if desired.

    Tip

    Coarse black pepper isn't as hot as its finely ground counterpart and provides a great contrast to the sweetness of the bananas. Cream or even sour cream or yogurt can be used to make the dessert more delicate.

    Tip

    Works just as well with strawberries.
