This is a really quick and easy dessert to make, but it can look quite impressive if you present it nicely. I’d intended to make banana splits but didn’t have the proper boat-shaped plates so I decided to make them in a glass instead – hence the sundae.
(for one smallish one. If you’re the sort of person who could eat a whole banana split by yourself then double the quantities.)
- ½ banana, peeled and sliced
- 1 scoop of vanilla ice cream
- 1 scoop of whipped cream
- A good drizzling of butterscotch sauce
- Chopped nuts, such as walnuts, for garnishing
I also added a splash of Bailey’s Irish Cream, just because I felt like it. Yum! You could, of course, use chocolate sauce or perhaps a chocolate rum sauce instead of the butterscotch. Perhaps we’ll try that another day.
First make your sauce (see my recipe for butterscotch sauce).
Next it’s just an assembly job.
Bung in some of the sliced banana, a scoop of ice cream, and a scoop of whipped cream. Repeat if necessary till your glass or dish is full.
Add the walnut garnish.
Finally, drizzle your sauce over it.
How easy was that?
