Grilled bananas with toffee sauce and caramel ice cream


For the toffee sauce

  • Heat the heavy cream in a saucepan over medium heat. It should be lukewarm to warm.
  • Place a pot over medium-low heat.
  • Add 1/10 of the sugar into the pot and let it melt, until it starts becoming a caramel.
  • Add another 1/10 of the sugar into the pot.
  • Follow the same process until the sugar melts.
  • Once the sugar turns into caramel, lower the heat to low.
  • Slowly pour the heavy cream in batches, while whisking at the same time. Be careful as the caramel has a very high temperature and you could get burnt while pouring the cream.
  • Whisk and simmer for 5-10 minutes, until the toffee sauce slightly thickens and there are no caramel bits onto the sides of the pot.
  • Remove the pot from the heat and set the toffee sauce aside to cool.

For the caramel ice cream

  • Beat the heavy cream in a mixer’s bowl with the whisk attachment, for 3-4 minutes, until you have a fluffy whipped cream.
  • Remove the bowl from the mixer.
  • Mix the cream cheese with the toffee sauce (cooled) into a bowl, until there is a uniform mixture.
  • Add the whipped cream into the bowl with the rest of the ingredients, and mix softly with a silicone spatula.
  • Pour the mixture into a 10x30 cm bowl and transfer it to the freezer for at least 4 hours, until the ice cream is chilled.

For the grilled bananas

  • Preheat the barbecue.
  • Use a knife to cut the bananas lengthwise, without removing the peel.
  • In a bowl, whisk the butter, the sugar, the maple syrup, and the rum.
  • Use a pastry brush to spread the mixture on the bananas, on the side you cut them.
  • Place the bananas on heat, cut-side facing down.
  • Grill them for 2 minutes, until golden.
  • Carefully flip the bananas over and grill them for 5 minutes, until the flesh of the bananas is soft.
  • Remove the bananas from the heat.
  • Serve with the caramel ice cream, drizzle with the toffee sauce, and -optionally- sprinkle with finely chopped chocolate.
