Caramel Bananas on Brioche

After a successful furniture shopping day another Sunday Brunch was in order.

Some Facts About PECANS:
  • Pecans are a good source of protein and unsaturated fats.
  • They can be eaten fresh or used in cooking, particularly in sweet desserts but also in some savory dishes.
  • In addition to the pecan nut, the wood is also used in making furniture, in hardwood flooring, as well as flavoring fuel for smoking meats.

EASE: 3/5. You have a few things going at a time.
Prep time: 5mins. To slice bread and bananas, toast pecans and get ingredients ready.
Cooking time: 5mins. The bananas, caramel mixture and brioche take 5mins each - I had them on at the same time.
TOTAL: 10mins. Pretty quick and easy. A lot of washing up though.

TASTE: 3.5/5.
Very heavy, rich and sweet. The caramel sauce and pecans were lovely I found the banana a little mushy though and would probably not bother frying it next time. The brioche was sweet worked well. I originally used two slices but one is definitely enough. Would use less pecans and banana next time. I bought a large brioche from Laurent Patisserie. I didn't serve it with cream or yoghurt but might next time to cut through the sweetness.

Would I make it again: Probably.
Very rich though - need to be super hungry.
