A hot fudge sundae along with a banana split is I think a soda fountain staple. With the ice cream of your choice its delicious but when you add caramelized banana it takes it a step further. —sdebrango

What You'll Need
  • 1 Banana cut in half then quartered
  • 1 tablespoon Butter
  • 1/4 cup Brown Sugar
  • 1/2 cup Heavy Cream (1/4 cup for banana and 1/4 cup for hot fudge)
  • 3 ounces Dark and Milk Chocolate Chopped in small pieces. I like half dark half milk chocolate
  • 1 tablespoon Clear corn syrup
  • Ice Cream your choice
  1. In frying pan melt your butter, brush your banana quarters on both sides first with heavy cream note: you may not need a full 1/4 cup of cream to brush or dip the banana's but thats ok add a little bit to the caramel it makes it even more decadent, then dredge in brown sugar brushing off excess. Place in frying pan on medium heat cook for 1 minute on each side. Remove from pan and set aside. Be sure you pour that wonderful caramel sauce over the bananas.
  2. Heat your 1/4 cup of cream until hot not boiling, place chocolate in bowl and pour hot cream over it, let sit approx. 5 minutes stir, if you want to use corn syrup add now. Stir until its creamy and thick.
  3. To assemble: In your serving dish place 2 banana quarters and some of the caramel at the bottom add one scoop of ice cream. Add the other 2 quarters of banana and another scoop of ice cream. Top with your hot fudge. You can garnish with whipped cream if you like

I have loved to cook for as long as I can remember, am self taught learning as I go. I come from a large Italian family and food was at the center of almost every gathering. My grandfather made his own wine and I remember the barrels of wine in the cellar of my grandfathers home, I watched my mother and aunts making homemade pasta and remember how wonderful it was to sit down to a truly amazing dinner. Cooking for me is a way to express myself its my creative outlet. I enjoy making all types of food but especially enjoy baking, I live in Brooklyn, NY, and I share my home with my two dogs Izzy and Nando. I like to collect cookbooks and scour magazines and newspapers for recipes. I hope one day to organize them.
