In Russia, we are used to eating fresh bananas, but there are many recipes for desserts and layers for cakes, which are prepared by frying this tropical fruit. In our article we will talk about making caramelized and caramelized bananas.

How to Caramelize Bananas for Desserts

Basic rules for preparing desserts:

  • fruits should be taken slightly unripe and dense, only then the prepared dessert will look very beautiful;
  • One banana makes 1 serving of dessert.

Bananas in caramel

To prepare a dessert from caramelized bananas, you don’t have to look for any special products: every housewife almost always has everything she needs on hand.

Ingredients required for two servings:

  • two bananas;
  • half a glass of granulated sugar;
  • butter – 40 g;
  • water – 2 tbsp. spoons;

Take a thick-walled frying pan and put it on fire, pour in water and add butter and granulated sugar. After boiling, reduce the heat and cook the contents of the pan for seven minutes. At this time, peel the bananas, cut into round slices about one and a half centimeters thick and place in a frying pan, spreading evenly over the bottom so that the boiling mixture envelops each piece. The entire procedure for frying bananas takes no more than one minute.

Take a plate and place the prepared caramelized bananas on it, pour the caramel that remains in the pan on top, and sprinkle with sesame seeds. Instead of sesame seeds, you can use cinnamon powder, coconut flakes, pine nuts, or grate a small piece of chocolate.

With honey and cinnamon

To prepare, you will need two bananas, one tablespoon of honey and the same amount of butter, a pinch of cinnamon and just a little salt. Peel the bananas and cut them into circles or into three or four pieces. Melt the butter in a frying pan, add honey and cinnamon with salt, bring to a boil and dip the banana slices into the syrup. Fry until the desired beautiful golden crust forms and transfer to a plate. Place a scoop of ice cream on the cooled finished dessert.

An exquisite dessert prepared for a romantic dinner can be made very quickly. Candles, soft soft music and beautifully decorated caramelized bananas on a plate with delicate colors.

Required ingredients:

  • raisins 2 tbsp. spoons (the berries must first be filled with warm water for 1 hour);
  • butter – 40 g;
  • dark rum (liqueur or cognac) – 2 tbsp. spoons;
  • granulated sugar – 15 g.

In a thick-walled frying pan, melt the butter, add sugar to it, mix the resulting mixture well, add raisins and peeled banana, cut lengthwise into two halves. Fry the banana until golden brown on both sides and pour in cognac, liqueur or dark rum. After a few minutes the entire mixture should caramelize. All that remains is to present everything beautifully for a romantic dinner.

With syrup

Your family will love this dessert with syrup. To prepare your favorite delicacy we will need: three bananas, a glass of sugar, raspberry syrup - 3 tbsp. spoons, 40 grams of butter, 4 tablespoons of water.

Place a thick-walled frying pan on the stove, add water, butter and granulated sugar. After boiling, reduce the temperature of the stove and cook the contents for 5 minutes, stirring continuously. After the mixture turns a light amber color, add raspberry syrup to it and mix well. Peel the bananas, cut them into two parts and dip them into the prepared caramel for one minute, place them on a plate and cool. That's all! Dessert is ready, call everyone to the table.

In the test

To prepare banana in dough, you need to knead shortbread dough, which is prepared from two bananas, 50 g. butter, 2.5 tbsp. spoons of wheat flour, 1 tbsp. spoons of sugar, 2 tbsp. spoons of coconut flakes. Pre-cool the butter in the freezer, then finely chop it with a knife, mix it with wheat flour and granulated sugar, grind the resulting mass into crumbs and add coconut shavings.

Place a cooking ring in the frying pan, and pour 0.5 tbsp into the bottom of it in an even layer. spoons of granulated sugar, and then put in finely chopped bananas and cover with crumbs of the prepared dough. Fry the entire contents for 2 minutes, during which time the sugar should turn into caramel. Then place the frying pan (it should be without a handle) in a preheated oven for twenty minutes. Place the prepared dessert on a plate, turning it over so that the bottom part with caramel is on top.

Bananas in dough

Let's now try to complicate the recipe. Do you like apples in dough? You can also make bananas using this principle. From fifty grams of very chilled butter, two and a half tablespoons of flour and sugar (it should take 1 tbsp), knead the shortbread dough. Grind it into crumbs. To this mass add two soup spoons of coconut flakes. Heat the oven to two hundred degrees. Place a cooking ring on a frying pan without a handle. Pour half a spoonful of sugar into the bottom. Cut two bananas into small pieces and push them into the ring. Top with crumbled toast. Fry for two minutes until the sugar turns into caramel. Then we put the pan in the oven and bake for about twenty minutes. Place upside down on a plate and remove the ring.

How to caramelize fruit for a cake

To prepare the cake, we bake two vanilla sponge cakes and prepare the filling from caramelized bananas.

Required ingredients for impregnation:

  • bananas – 3 pcs.;
  • half a glass of granulated sugar;
  • butter – 50 g;
  • half a glass of hot boiled water.

Cut the peeled bananas into slices no more than 2 centimeters thick. In a thick-walled frying pan, melt the butter and add granulated sugar, stir everything until you obtain a transparent golden caramel. Add hot water to the resulting mass, which begins to boil strongly. Place bananas in the boiling mixture and simmer for 5 minutes. Remove from heat and cool. We soak one cake layer with caramel syrup with bananas, and the other with cream filling, decorate the top with cream cheese.

Seven hours after soaking, the cake can be cut and tasted. It turns out to be the most delicate in taste.

We offer a second layer option for making a birthday cake. We bake the sponge cake and cut it in half, creating two identical cake layers. To prepare caramel, put 30 g of butter and half a glass of granulated sugar in a frying pan, which we bring to a boil with constant stirring. We peel six bananas, cut each fruit into 5 parts, place in boiling caramel, fry on all sides and place on a plate.

From the caramel remaining in the frying pan we prepare curd-yogurt cream, for the preparation of which you will need 0.5 kg of cottage cheese, 400 g of yogurt, ½ cup of milk and dissolved gelatin (1 teaspoon). Place all ingredients in a mixer bowl and beat well. In order to assemble the cake, we use a springform pan, on the bottom of which we place cling film and the bottom cake. To soak the crust, use half of the prepared cream, put caramelized bananas on top, on which we place the remaining cream. Cover the resulting structure with a second cake layer, and decorate the sides of the cake with fresh banana slices.

Now you need to decorate the top of the resulting cake. To do this, soak it in banana topping. To prepare it, you need to dissolve 1 teaspoon of gelatin in 30 grams of boiled water. Using a fork, puree the peeled banana and add 30 g of granulated sugar. Simmer the resulting puree for 5 minutes in a frying pan, cool and beat with a mixer along with the dissolved gelatin to obtain a homogeneous mass.

Thus, we prepared a topping that covers the top and sides of our product in an even layer. Place the finished cake in the refrigerator for 4 hours to allow the cream to harden. Now we remove the unnecessary cling film and you can set the table.

Preparing dessert fruits in Chinese

This dish is traditional for Chinese, or more precisely, Sichuan, cuisine. There, in addition to bananas, apples, pumpkins, and eggplants can be cooked in the same way.

Calorie content for 100 g of dessert: 237 kcal.

The skin is removed from the fruit and the fruit is cut into pieces. They need to be rolled in a container with starch so that the fruit is completely covered with it. In a frying pan (turn on the stove at 180 degrees, add oil in advance to warm it up) fry the banana pieces very quickly - no more than 2 minutes. They are then placed on a plate.

Next you should prepare the caramel. To do this, heat sugar with 75 ml of water in a saucepan. When the water boils and the sugar dissolves, stir until a light brown mass forms. Then the caramel is removed from the stove.

Pieces of bananas are dipped into it using sticks so that they are covered with syrup. Sesame seeds are sprinkled on top. Now it remains to find out what the ice is for. The fact is that the dish is served immediately, and it can be very hot.

A container with the remaining water and ice is placed on the table next to it. Before eating a piece, dip it in cold water for a couple of seconds to cool and harden the caramel. It is better to use sticks for this.

Let's start cooking fried bananas in caramel

  1. Heat a small, heavy-walled frying pan on the stove. Pour in all the water and put a piece of butter in it. Caramel will be prepared from this composition.
  2. When the ingredients begin to boil, reduce the temperature and continue cooking the caramel for six to seven minutes.
  3. In the meantime, the bananas need to be peeled and cut into round “pockets”, about a centimeter or two thick.
  4. Place all the “piglets” into the pan and, stirring, continue cooking the bananas in the caramel for about one minute. Try to make sure that the caramel covers each piece evenly. Then the dessert will turn out not only more tasty, but also more beautiful.
  5. Now prepare a plate and, having placed golden aromatic banana pieces on it, pour over the remaining caramel from the frying pan. Decorate the dessert with sesame seeds on top. As a decorating addition, instead of sesame seeds, you can use cinnamon powder or coconut shavings, you can grate a couple of squares of your favorite chocolate and sprinkle the dessert with these chocolate flakes.

Fried bananas - preparation

  1. First of all, you need to take a frying pan and put it on the fire to heat up.
  2. Place butter in a frying pan and let it melt completely.
  3. As soon as the butter melts, you need to add sugar to it. You should experiment with the amount of sugar. Some people like it sweeter, while others want to keep the sugar to a minimum. Choose for yourself.
  4. Now you need to let the sugar melt and the butter mixture should thicken a little.
  5. As soon as this happens, add hot water.
  6. The sauce should turn into a homogeneous, fairly viscous syrup.
  7. Now take the bananas and peel them.
  8. Next, the bananas should be cut into slices.
  9. After that, it’s time to put the bananas in the frying pan in the caramel.
  10. When the bananas are already fried, wait until they brown on one side and turn them over to the other.
  11. Now that the bananas are upside down, they should be sprinkled with cinnamon and other spices you like.
  12. Then you need to reduce the heat and let the bananas simmer in the sauce for about 3 minutes.

At the end, you can pour cognac over them and set them on fire so that all the fruits are caramelized with a crispy crust. In this case, you will get a flambe. We didn’t do this because we were preparing bananas as a sauce for pancakes and there was no need for a crust. However, if we are talking about ice cream or self-serve, then this option would be quite appropriate. The rest is all a matter of your taste and preferences. Thus, for example, you can try cooking apples or pears, or you can mix apples with bananas. By the way, if you combine several fruits of different densities, such as bananas and apples, then you should put the harder ones first, and almost at the end put the soft ones like bananas.

We wish you sweet meals, good mood and new culinary achievements. We hope that the recipe will become a lifesaver for you both for social feasts and for quiet home dinners.

And now a recipe for making bananas in caramel, photos of which can be seen below. As you may have guessed, two units of fruit yield two servings of the finished dessert. The fruits you choose for this recipe should not be overripe, with a dense texture. This is necessary so that the bananas can retain their shape and remain beautiful.

Cut the peeled fruit into beautiful slices. You can chop thin circles or divide each fruit into two or three parts. The only thing that matters here is which caramelized bananas you like best.

Prepare the syrup mixture

First of all, prepare delicious caramel. At this time, let the bananas lie in their peels, unpeeled, so as not to darken. For caramel, heat water and butter in a thick-bottomed bowl. Then add all the sugar to the resulting hot mixture and dissolve it with a spoon - stirring. The cooking process takes place over low heat.

When the mixture begins to acquire a light amber hue, you need to masterfully pour in the syrup and stir the resulting caramel. Now remove the dishes from the heat and very quickly peel the bananas. Of course, your actions must be quick, but careful. Do not knock over the dishes and cause harm to yourself.

We cut each peeled fruit into two parts, dip it in caramel and make sure that it covers all parts. Remove the finished caramelized fruits from the bowl and cool them. You can cool it by placing it on foil, it will be more convenient. The cooled delicacy can be served.

Bananas in mulled wine

The recipe recommends choosing ripe soft fruits this time. First we make mulled wine. Pour a glass of sweet wine (Cahors, Muscatel) into a saucepan. If you are making a dessert for children, you can replace alcohol with clear juice. Add two hundred and fifty grams of brown sugar. Add cloves, cinnamon and other spices that are commonly used to season mulled wine. Place the saucepan on medium heat. As soon as the wine begins to boil, reduce the flame to low. Let all the spices fully develop and impart their aroma to the wine. Remove the saucepan from the heat and strain its contents through a tea strainer. Place a cast iron frying pan over very low heat. Dissolve 4 tablespoons of butter in it. Peel four bananas and cut them into round discs at least a centimeter thick. Fry in oil until golden brown. Then pour in the mulled wine. Bring to a boil over low heat (otherwise the alcohol ingredient will evaporate). Cook the caramelized bananas for about half an hour. Serve warm. This dessert can be decorated with whipped cream and grated lemon zest.


It will be convenient to use wooden skewers when cooking large bananas. Fruits are pricked onto such a device and “dipped” in caramel. Now place the banana on a skewer to cool. And you can eat it just like that.

You can cook more than just bananas in sweet caramel. Apple slices prepared in this way would be a good dessert. Some sweet lovers make pear slices (or slices). You can also use orange slices to prepare a light, juicy and sweet dessert.

The dish is directly related to Sichuan cuisine, so it is possible to prepare not only the beloved bananas and apples. In the original, a combination of caramel and pumpkin pieces or even eggplant prepared in a similar way may be quite logical for the dish.

In addition to eating the dish as a dessert, you can use banana sweet pieces as a pancake filling or filling for sweet puff pastry pies. Also, a banana prepared in this way can be part of a sweet toast.

I suggest you try a very tasty dessert - bananas fried in caramel. The preparation process will not take much time, and many people, especially those with a sweet tooth, will be satisfied with the result. Fried bananas are delicious, with a spicy caramel note. They are best served warm, but they also taste good when chilled. These bananas can be served as an independent dessert or complemented with ice cream, pancakes, and porridge.
