Fried Bananas with Amaretto Fudge Sauce


This dish is so dreamy, you’ll want to enjoy it again and again. Leftover fudge sauce will keep, covered, for several days in the refrigerator, although it will harden. Re-heating will return thesauce to its original satiny texture.

  • ServingServings


Amaretto Fudge Sauce

  • 1 cup unrefined dark brown molasses sugar (muscovado sugar)
  • ¼ cup brown rice syrup
  • 3 Tbs. Amaretto
  • 2 Tbs. lemon juice
  • 3 Tbs. unsweetened cocoa powder

Fried Bananas

  • 8 medium-sized, firm, ripe bananas, peeled
  • 3 Tbs. lemon juice
  • 1 Tbs. nonhydrogenated, butter-flavored margarine


  1. To make Amaretto Fudge Sauce: Combine molasses sugar, rice syrup, Amaretto and lemon juice in heavy-gauge saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, cooking 3 minutes, and stirring frequently. When sugar dissolves, whisk in cocoa powder and reduce heat to low, cooking 2 minutes. Remove from heat, and set aside. Sauce thickens as it cools.
  2. To prepare Fried Bananas: Slice bananas in half lengthwise and widthwise. Sprinkle bananas with lemon juice to maintain color, and set aside.
  3. Heat margarine in nonstick skillet 1 minute over medium-high heat, or until margarine melts. Place bananas in single layer in skillet, and cook 3 minutes on each side, or until golden brown. Remove bananas to individual serving plates. Drizzle with Amaretto Fudge Sauce, and serve immediately.
