Baked Bananas

Faith Naluai


My mom used to make this when she felt like eating dessert but didn’t want to work too hard. Yeah, it’s easier to scoop ice cream into a bowl but this dish is super ‘ono. Enjoy!

You’ll need 4 bananas. Williams bananas are the best, but if you like, use apple bananas - that’s good too.
1/2 cup of brown sugar
1/4 cup of pineapple juice
3 tbsp. of sherry
1/2 cup chopped nuts (any kind is good but macadamia nuts are the best)
2 tbsp. butter
1 tsp. of nutmeg.

Peel the bananas and put them into a baking dish. Mix the brown sugar, nutmeg, pineapple juice, and sherry and pour them over the bananas.
Finely chop the nuts and sauté them in the butter. Sprinkle over bananas. Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes or until bananas are tender and lightly glazed. Serve with ice cream or yogurt. Serves 4.
