We’ve been craving our beach bonfires this lockdown. Cooking over the flames with the sound of the sea lapping the shore. Instead of dwelling on what we are missing we thought why not bring the adventure home!
We headed to our back garden for a blissful moment of escapism courtesy of a meal cooked in the open air and a mug of hot Joe.
We realised that there can be magic in the mundane if you do those everyday simple things in a more creative way.
Making things special and memorable in these days that could otherwise blend together.
We got this recipe from our favourite outdoor chef Sarah Glover and it is utterly delicious!
Lucy + Marie x
Rapeseed Oil (for the pan)
4 bananas, peeled and halved lengthways
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup Woodford Reserve
Handful of walnuts
Waffle Recipe - HERE
Heat a good drizzle of rapeseed oil in a cast-iron frying pan. Add the bananas, cut side down, and sprinkle the brown sugar evenly over the top. Allow the heat of the pan to cook the bananas and melt the sugar – this should take about 5 minutes.
Pour the whiskey into the pan and flip the bananas over. Make sure it’s on a medium (not high) heat − you can manage this by not putting the pan directly on the flames. Add the walnuts and an extra slug of whiskey. Set the whiskey on fire and cook for another 5 minutes or until the bananas are well caramelised and the whiskey has reduced to a glaze.
Serve with waffles and greek yoghurt. Enjoy!
