My great aunt Mildred served this banana treat whenever I stayed for a weekend visit with my cousin back in the 1950s. The taste is similar to a butterscotch or caramel sauce, but has its own unique flavor.
We also use it on ice cream, or drizzled over pound cake or other fruit. I guarantee kids will love it! Mine did.
One banana sliced into dessert cups serves two, so once the sauce is made and stored in the refrigerator, it's handy for a quick dessert topping.
Banana Dessert Sauce
1 cup brown sugar
1-1/2 Tabs. vinegar
3 Tabs. water
2 sliced bananas
In a bowl, mix and blend sugar, egg, vinegar and water. Bring mixture to a slow boil in a saucepan, stirring constantly to blend as it bubbles up.
Do not burn. Remove from heat and cool. Drizzle a few spoonfuls over slice bananas, then sprinkle the top with chopped peanuts and a little more sauce. Makes about a cup.
Store extra in a jar in the refrigerator. Serves 4 or more.
Estimated cost: .50 cents or less for a cup of sauce.
