Grilling can be one of the funnest activities in the summer or during anytime throughout the year. Many people do not know that a number of desserts can be made on the grill. One of those finest desserts is a grilled banana, which is extremely easy to make. Grilling enhances the overall sweetness of bananas, which can be further improved by adding cinnamon, sugar and honey.
Banana - 1 per serving
Sugar - 2 tbsp
Cinnamon - 2 tbsp
Honey - 2 tsp
Ice cream - optional
If you are not already using the grill, you need to preheat it before putting the bananas on it.
However, if you have been using the grill for some purpose like a barbecue and it is already hot, add the bananas over the grill when you are done cooking everything else.
Grab a small bowl and put a couple of tablespoons each of cinnamon and sugar in it as you mix them nicely with a spoon.
You can place this bowl on a side for the time being.
Cut the unpeeled bananas one by one lengthwise.
You can now drizzle a small quantity of honey over the cut side of each banana and sprinkle the sugar-cinnamon mixture over all the banana halves one by one.
Put the cut side of each banana on the hot grill and let it grill for approximately a couple of minutes or until black grill marks appear.
Let them grill for another five minutes after turning each one of the banana halves over.
Take a serving platter and place the banana halves from the grill on to it.
The choice is yours if you want to get rid of the banana peel or you want them to be served with it on, as the banana can be scooped just before they are eaten.
Place two banana halves in a serving plate and layer them with ice cream.
Choose a flavour of ice cream which suits the taste of grilled bananas.
Adding ice cream, however, is completely your choice.
