Orange Caramelized Banana

Our house will always have some banana hanging around in the kitchen because it is Reyon's favourite fruit since he was a toddler. Today we are in the mood to make this Orange Caramelized Banana for our after dinner dessert.....

This is my very 1st time trying to make this Caramelized Banana at home and to my surprised it taste really nice and fragrant because of the use of Orange Rind, Juice and Grand Marnier. To further enhance this dessert, I served it with some Ice-cream, chocolate and extra shredded Orange Rinds.Posted by Picasa

Ingredients: (serves 2)
2 Medium Size Banana (ripe but still firm)
10g Butter
3/4 to 1 Tablespoon of Brown Sugar
2 Teaspoons Grand Marnier (optional)
1 Medium Size Orange, grate the zest and juice
Serve with Ice-Cream, optional

1. Cut the banana into halves.
2. Melt butter in a small non-stick pan then add banana and fry until golden brown. (you can carefully turn it over so that both side will be caramelized with nice brown colour)
3. Add in the orange zest and cook for 20 seconds then sprinkle Grand Marnier evenly on top.
4. Next sprinkle brown sugar over the banana and pour in about 50ml of orange juice and cook until almost thicken.
5. Serve with Ice-cream and some extra shredded orange rind to enhance the flavour.

1) You can drizzle some extra melted chocolate for that luxury.
2) You can omit the Grand Marnier if you are serving for the kids.
