Baked Bananas in Caramel Sauce

For caramel sauce:
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup water
1/2 pint cream (1 cup)

4 peeled bananas
1/3 cup soft brown sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 tablespoon butter, cut into six pieces
3 tablespoons fresh orange juice

Make caramel sauce by bringing sugar and water to the boil, without stirring, in a heavy-based saucepan over medium heat. Continue boiling until the color turns a golden caramel. Take off the heat immediately and add the cream, holding the saucepan at arm's length to avoid being spattered with the hot liquid. Return to a low heat and stir until smooth. Keep warm but do not boil again.

Finish by putting bananas in an ovenproof dish/casserole and sprinkle with sugar and cinnamon. Drop butter pieces on top and pour on orange juice. Bake for 15 minutes and serve with the caramel sauce.

Makes 4 servings.
