Don't you love recipes that take just a couple ingredients and a few minutes? This is one of those. A lovely little dessert that's super simple to make. I found it in a nifty cookbook by Mark Bittman called The Minimalist Entertains
These directions will serve one, so multiply accordingly.
Peel one banana. Cut it in half then split in half again lengthwise. You will have four pieces.
Melt a pat of butter (about 1 T.) in a skillet over medium-high heat. Wait until foaminess subsides.
Dredge banana pieces in a bit of flour. Shake off excess flour, then
place banana in butter.
Cook until golden, turning when needed. (Bittman says this takes 10 minutes, but mine browned in about 2-3 minutes.) Sprinkle with 1/2 t. - 1 t. sugar and cook for one more minute. Serve with a sprinkle of fresh lemon juice.
Anything you like to make with bananas that the rest of us should know about?
