Balmy banana bake

Yield: 8 2ervings

Measure Ingredient
2 tablespoons Unsalted butter
8 Slightly underripe bananas
3 Juice of limes
3 tablespoons Light brown sugar

This recipe calls for slightly underripe bananas because, as they cook, they'll soften up quite a bit. Lime juice keeps the bananas from discoloring, so they are easily made ahead through step 3. The sweet and tangy combination is just right served after your jazzy meal.

1. Preheat oven to 375'F.

2. Butter a shallow baking dish; reserve remaining butter.

3. Peel and layer bananas in the buttered dish and drizzle with lime juice.

4. Sprinkle with sugar and dot bananas with remaining butter. Bake for 30 minutes, basting once or twice with sauce. Remove bananas from dish carefully with a long spatula. Serve hot, with sauce spooned on top.
