Baked Bananas

(6 servings)

  • 6 firm and ripe bananas
  • 3 Tablespoons butter
  • 3 Tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 3 Tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • grated coconut
  • orange or lemon zest
Peel the bananas and cut them into 3-inch chunks.

Place butter and lemon juice in shallow baking dish. Place in oven only until butter is melted. Stir butter and lemon juice together until mixed. Put banana chunks in baking dish and turn until bananas are well coated.

In small bowl, stir together brown sugar and cinnamon until blended. Sprinkle sugar mixture on top of bananas. Bake at 375 degrees for 18 to 20 minutes or until bananas are heated through and butter just begins to bubble. Do not overcook.

A great way to enjoy bananas at breakfast. Topped with a little grated coconut and orange zest, this is very tasty.
