Lucky me no cooking this morning so I found it an opportunity to use the lonely ripe 3 bananas in the fruit basket into something instead of becoming too soft and then throw them away.

Banana Caramel Pie.( فطيره الموز والكراميل)

Hello everybody.

Craved something sweet last night or actually I saw this recipe on TV couple of days ago,bought puff pastry Saturday so as to do it when the occasion pops up.

It’s a very easy dessert that you can do anytime you have sudden guests, just keep a pack of puff pastry always ready in your freezer and I guess bananas are always available most of the times.

 

Ingredients and method:

* 1 square pack of puff pastry.

* 1 cup sugar.

* 1/4 cup water.

* 1 tsp butter.

* 5-6 big bananas.

* a sprinkle of cinnamon.

 

* In a deep oven skillet or pan add sugar and water, heat till caramelized and golden.

* add butter then cut bananas to medium sized pieces and arrange over caramel.

* sprinkle with cinnamon.

*roll the pastry to a big circle then cover all over bananas and secure edges.

* bake in a well heated oven till pastry puffs and become golden.

* while still hot turn it upside down quickly.

* serve with vanilla ice cream or whipping cream.

Banoffee!!

Hello everybody.
Hope you’re enjoying the sunny warm weather.
Today lunch is at mom’s..stuffed vine leaves (ورق دوالي ). This week is all stuffing :)
  I volunteered to make Caesar salad, I also made Panoffee in case my dear uncles pass by as every Friday.
Panoffee is a delicious easy kind of sweet, I usually make it when I have ripe bananas.
Ingredients :
*3-4 bananas.
* 1 cup brown sugar.
* 1 cup milk.
* 1 big spoon cornflour.
* 2 cups butterd crushed biscuits.
* 1 pack cream.
* fresh cream or chocolate for decorating.

Method:
* Spread the biscuits in a Pyrex.
* Cut bananas to circles and layer them over biscuits.
* Make caramel sauce by heating brown sugar with butter or you can use white sugar but you have to melt it and wait till it becomes brown.
* add cream and milk and stir very well.add 1 spoon cornflour to the milk before adding it so as to thicken the sauce.
* simmer caramel till thick.
* spread over bananas.
* decorate with any kind of chocolate or whipped cream or vanilla ice cream if you like.
