Dessert Recipes Tasty Treats

Banana Tatin Verinnes

One evening, some time ago, I was hit with a fierce craving for something sweet. I began perusing my usual food blogs in hopes of finding a recipe that would satisfy my craving and not force me to head out to the grocery store in the middle of the night to pick up additional items. When I stumbled upon this recipe for banana tatin I knew it was the one. Not only did it promise to satisfy my cravings, I also happened to have each ingredient on hand. The creaminess of the crème fraîche paired with the sweetness of the caramelized bananas is a combination that cannot be beat. And it was quickly declared the perfectly indulgent midnight snack. Although, for my hips’ sake, we will only be repeating this late-night process on rare occasions.

Have a lovely labour day weekend sunshines!

    i just discovered the flavor of home caramelized bananas as i tried a hopscotch cobbler (to me it really looks like a crumble, but as a native croatian i know nothing of crumbles :) or cobblers for that matter)

    it was good, but i might try your one here! it looks delicious

    I made the Banana Tatin recipe and loved it. Delicious. And, apparently caramelizing is much, much easier than I thought. Thanks for the tip – I’ll be following for more!
