Method

  1. Preheat the grill to high.

  3. Combine the brown sugar and the cinnamon. Generously scatter the sugar mix over the exposed banana. Place under the grill on a tin foil lined tray, sugar side up, for about 5 minutes until the sugar caramelises to a deep brown colour. Leave the bananas to cool - it is important to cool the bananas as the heat will affect how it blends.
