Bananas in an orange and coconut syrup

Ok, so the first thing about this delicious recipe is that the bananas are fried on a pan, but sometimes you just need to be a little naughty and it is only a little butter 🙂


55g/2oz creamed coconut (sold in blocks in supermarkets & health stores)

  • 125 ml/4oz fresh orange juice
  • 1 level tsp grated orange rind
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • 2 large bananas
  • 1 tsp butter
  • tsp cinnamon


  • Cut the creamed coconut into rough chunks and put in a pa with the orange juice, rind and lemon juice. Bring to the boil and simmer gently until the coconut has melted to give a smooth creamy sauce.
  • Cut the bananas in half and then in half again lengthwise and fry them in the butter until they begin to soften and brown.
  • Sprinkle with cinnamon and serve immediately with the orange and coconut sauce.
