My Wife's Bananas

Over a month ago I included a recipe for Zucchini and Bananas with the caveat that you never cook it for my wife. If you want to cook bananas for her, this is one of her favourite desserts ...

Drunken Bananas

Bananas, 1-2 per person
Brandy, a generous splash
Spices, usually cinnamon, maybe a little five spice or nutmeg as well
Yoghurt, or if you aren't on a low-fat diet, whipped cream or ice cream

Chop the bananas up, not too fine, and heat in a frying pan. Splash in the decent amount of brandy, sprinkle in a few pinches of cinnamon, and stir and cook the bananas. Wait until the bananas are starting to break apart at the edges, then serve with yoghurt or cream or ice cream, or more brandy.

One final note ... don't do an image search for "banana brandy" ... it doesn't get you food if you have safe search turned off. And as porn names go, I'm not sure that's a winner, but I guess it is unique.
