Caramelized bananas are one of the simplest and quickest ways to use ripe bananas. Keep it in mind not only for dessert, but for topping waffles, pancakes, cakes and more!
Whether you’re a banana fan or not (I’m not a huge fan), I bet you’ll simply adore these caramelized bananas.

As you probably know, I just got back from a week long trip to Jamaica (which I won from BevMo!) After eating lots of tropical fruit, many of which I’d never seen or heard of before, I was inspired to make this banana dish in the midst of this horrific winter that many in the US, UK and Europe have been experiencing.
Each morning in Jamaica, I’d have a lovely little banana which was grown on the resort’s property and it was so sweet and full of flavour.
I’m not a huge banana fan like some people I know, but in certain recipes, they really are wonderful. Along with this banana Nutella bundt cake, I think caramelized bananas is one of them. It’s something you can throw together in a few minutes using only three ingredients, yet is really quite impressive and versatile, too!
