Baked Bananas

recipe
Bananas have a sweet, starchy texture, which makes baking them the ultimate treat. When topped with a sweet syrup glaze, the flavor of this fruit really shines. This super-simple dessert gets warm and bubbly in the oven and when topped with whipped cream, becomes an indulgent tropical treat for all ages. Reminiscent of a deconstructed banana pudding, but with more minimal ingredients, this dessert is a perfect way for any banana lover to indulge.
