Easy Desserts Back-to-Back: Recipe 1 - Caramelised Bananas with Gula Melaka on Hot Waffles

Pin It

Now that my kids are older, they've been regularly requesting for dessert after dinner *gasp*. 

I've had to put on my thinking cap to come up with some simple desserts that the whole family can enjoy.  This is one of the easy desserts that i make regularly. 

Caramelised Bananas with Gula Melaka on Hot Waffles
Serves 2

This fusion, western-local recipe marries the sweetness of pisang emas with gula melaka on toasty hot waffle for an all round family friendly dessert.  For extra indulgence, top it with a scoop of vanilla icecream.

  • 2 medium size ripened pisang emas
  • 2 pieces of store bought waffle, lightly toasted
  • A knob of butter
  • 1/2 tbspn brown sugar
  • 3 Tbspn of chopped gula melaka
  • 1 Tbspn of chopped nuts (walnut / pecan / roasted peanuts
  1. Cut the banana into chunks. Melt the butter in a pan and add the brown sugar.  Once the sugar starts to caramelize, add the bananas and swirl quickly to just soften and coat them with the mixture.  Set aside.  
  2. Melt the gula melaka in a small saucepan and let it cool.  I usually make extra to keep for other uses as well.
  3. Top the waffle with the bananas, sprinkle the chopped nuts and drizzle the gula melaka on top.  Serve immediately.
