I love trying different kinds of desserts with fruits available at home. I usually experiment with bananas, apples, mango and pineapple a lot. Today I wanted to have banana after lunch and decided to give it a small make-up. So made a quick and easy dessert that came out quite nice. Had some ice-cream at home and it was a good combo.

Serves: 2

Cooking time: 10 mins


Ripe bananas – 2 (big) (I cut each banana into 4 big pieces)
Brown sugar – ½ cup
Butter – 2 tbsp
Vanilla extract – ¼ tsp
Cornflakes – ½ cup (I used cereal cornflakes, plain)
Ice cream – 2 dollops (any flavor) (I used chocolate)


  1. Grind the cornflakes into a coarse powder. Make sure to leave few big chunks of cornflakes to get a nutty texture.
  2. Heat butter in a small pan and add the brown sugar and vanilla essence to it. Keep stirring it so that the sugar doesn’t burn.
  3. Once the sugar has caramelized, add the bananas and give a quick stir so that the sugar is well coated to the bananas.
  4. Switch off the heat and immediately place each caramelized banana piece in the coarse cornflake mixture. Let the cornflakes coat the bananas well on all sides.
  5. Serve the caramelized banana with ice-cream of your choice.


  1. You may add white sugar instead of brown sugar.
  2. Vanilla extract is optional.

    Sounds interesting.. Like the idea of adding cornflakes and caramelized banana


    Banana is already a sweet fruit, was it not very sweet when we add sugar. Just curious. But I loved the texture and adding cornflakes is a great idea 🙂
