Warm Caramel Banana Sundaes

Serve this warm topping over your favorite ice cream. The bananas and chips soften as the cream and brown sugar cook into a caramel sauce.
baking spatula, measuring cups, 8-inch (20 cm) square—or similar size—glass or ceramic baking dish with lid (or foil), dinner knife, measuring spoons
1/3 cup (80 mL) half and half cream (10% milk fat)
¼ cup (60 mL) packed brown sugar
pinch of salt
2 firm bananas
2 Tbsp (30 mL) chocolate chips and/or butterscotch chips
2 Tbsp (30 mL) sliced or slivered almonds, if you wish
ice cream for serving
  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F (190°C).
  2. Using a baking spatula, mix the cream, brown sugar, and salt in the baking dish.
  3. Peel the bananas. Use a dinner knife to cut each banana in thirds. Then cut each third in half lengthwise. You will have twelve pieces. Use your fingers to roll the pieces in the cream mixture and spread them out in the baking dish. Don’t overlap them.
  4. Sprinkle the chocolate and/or butterscotch chips and almonds, if using, on top of the bananas and cream mixture. Cover the dish with the lid or foil.
  5. Bake on the middle rack of the oven for 15 to 18 minutes. Get help checking that the caramel sauce has thickened. Get help removing the dish from the oven. Uncover and cool until just warm.
  6. Scoop ice cream into four bowls or sundae cups. Spoon the warm topping over the ice cream. Eat right away while the bananas are soft.
Makes 4 Warm Caramel Banana Sundaes.
