Recipe by @amie.milton
- 4 small bananas
- ½ cup plain flour
- ¼ cup desiccated coconut
- ¼ tsp baking soda
- ½ cup water
- vegetable oil
- 2 tsp coconut sugar
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 4 scoops ice cream (your favourite flavour)
- 2 tbsp toasted coconut
- 2 tbsp toasted flaked almonds
- Barker's Rich Chocolate Dessert Sauce
For the fried bananas
- In a small bowl, mix the flour, coconut, baking soda and water to make a batter. Add more water if you batter is too thick, one tablespoon at a time careful not to thin it too much.
- Cut your bananas in half length ways.
- Fill a medium saucepan with 1-2cm deep of vegetable oil for frying. Heat the oil. To test it is ready, place a small dollop of batter into the oil and if it bubbles when it enters the oil it is ready.
- Dip the bananas into the batter and place straight into the oil to cook. Flip them once the underside is nice and golden.
- Once they are cooked, remove the bananas from the oil and dry on paper towel to absorb any remaining oil.
- In a small dish, mix the coconut sugar and cinnamon. Sprinkle the bananas with the cinnamon sugar on both sides.
To toast coconut and almonds
- If you have bought un-toasted almonds and coconut you can toast your own.
- Preheat the oven to 180°C. Line a baking tray with baking paper and spread you coconut and flaked almonds on. Bake for about 5 minutes or until golden. Keep an eye on them as they will turn golden quick!
To serve your sundae
- Lay two halves of fried bananas onto a small plate.
- Top with one scoop of ice cream (or more if you'd like).
- Drizzle a good serving of Barker's Rich Chocolate Dessert Sauce on top.
- Sprinkle toasted coconut and almonds on top and enjoy!
