Brown sugar bananas make a great sundae topping, spoon over pound cake, pancakes or french toast. Today I made brown sugar banana sundaes.

Sauteed bananas in a brown sugar sauce, cold ice cream, fluffy whipped cream, and crunchy toasted coconut. Grab a spoon because it only takes a few minutes to whip up this sundae.

The sauce is nothing short of just wonderful. Just looking at this bite with the sauce swirled in the ice cream with the toasted coconut has me daydreaming about it.

Last week I was talking about how my banana obsession outweighed my coconut obsession. After the coconut betrayal I felt obligated to add toasted coconut to the sundae.

The warm brown sugar bananas melting that vanilla ice cream and light crunch of the toasted coconut. Best Sundae Ever. It adds a crunchy texture and nutty flavor. So much YUM!

This recipe is good for 6 sundaes.

Storing Leftovers

If you have leftovers store Brown Sugar Bananas in a airtight container and spoon it over French toast, waffles or pancakes the next morning.

What is better than a dessert than can be turned into breakfast? Nothing!
