  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 2 bananas, chopped
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • A pinch of ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup almonds, chopped
  • 1 thick pastry crust
  • 1 egg yolk for brushing
  • Powdered sugar for dusting
  • Vanilla ice cream


    In a skillet, melt the butter and add the chopped bananas.

    Add the honey and allow to caramelize.

    Add cinnamon and almonds and set aside.

    Place the pastry crust on a cutting board and cut into 4 pieces.

    Make 3 cuts in each of the pieces without cutting to the end of the crust, leaving the center whole.

    Add a heaping spoonful of the banana filling and wrap the pastry around it, alternating one side over the other.

    Brush on egg yolk and dust with sugar.

    Bake at 350°F for 40 minutes.

    Serve with a dollop of vanilla ice cream.
