    Maple and cinnamon bananas with walnuts

    These sweet, lightly spiced bananas are ready in just 15 minutes – the perfect impromptu pud. 

    • Vegetarian
    • Preparation time: 5 minutes
    • Cooking time: 10 minutes
    • Total time: 15 minutes 15 minutes

    Serves: 1


    15g walnut halves
    10g salted butter
    2 small (or 1 large) bananas, thickly sliced diagonally
    1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
    3 cardamom pods, seeds crushed
    1 tbsp maple syrup
    vanilla ice cream, yogurt or double cream, to serve


    1. Put the walnuts in a non-stick frying pan over a medium heat for 2-3 minutes, until lightly toasted; tip onto a board and roughly chop. Return the pan to the heat and add the butter. When melted, add the bananas in a single layer and allow to cook, undisturbed, for 1 minute 30 seconds. Gently flip them over, sprinkle over the cinnamon and cardamom, and cook for a further 1-2 minutes or until light golden.

    2. Drizzle over the maple syrup, scatter with the walnuts and cook for 1 minute, shaking the pan a little to coat, until sticky. Remove from the heat and spoon into a warm bowl. Enjoy straight away with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, yogurt or a drizzle of double cream.
