  • Melt butter in a skillet over medium heat, and let the butter heat until fragrant and very lightly brown. Add the bananas and stir constantly until the banana pieces sizzle and begin to caramelize, about 5 minutes. Turn down the heat to medium-low, sprinkle with maple sugar, and stir gently until the sugar melts. Sprinkle with cinnamon and serve.

Cook's Notes

I make this every so often not as a dessert but as a pancake/waffle/ice cream topping. I used brown sugar and a little maple flavoring instead of maple sugar and add until it's the consistancy I'm looking for. I usually will toss the bananas in a tbsp. of lemon juice before cooking. Read More

I gave it a four because while it was still pretty good I had to make a huge adjustment: the Sugar. 1 cup was entirely too much. I didn't have maple sugar so I used brown sugar (not even 1/4 cup). I also added a few drops of lemon to the brown sugar mixture as it cooked. I had mine with vanilla ice cream and it was great! Read More

This is G-O-O-D! I thought a cup of sugar would have been way to sweet so I added 2 TBS in all and it was just right. My husband and I immediately started thinking of things we could put it on like french toast pancakes vanilla yogurt ice cream shortcake well you get the idea. Great little treat. Read More

I used brown sugar instead of the maple sugar. I didn't have any maple extract either so I added a bit of vanilla. Also used 3 bananas and just topped it with the brown sugar-didn't add a cup. Also tossed bananas in lemon juice as someone suggested. This was a very yummy topping to add to my homemade crepes. Would probably work well with several different kinds of fruits. Read More

I used 3 bananas and 1/3 cup brown sugar. It was DELICIOUS on our waffles this morning! I think with a touch of rum it would be yummy on ice cream for adults - sort of a bananas foster type topping. Read More
