These little crumbles are a bit of a fiddle to make, but well worth the effort. Be careful when transferring them from the pan to the plate. A trusty fish slice will help. they make an impressive dinner party dessert and a rather more sophisticated alternative to banoffi pie.Unknown Source

How to Make Toffee Banana Crumbles

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 375.
    Trim and cut bananas into 1 1/4 inch lengths. Reserve four of the lengths for the centers of the crumbles, then slice each of the remaining ones in half lengthwise.
  2. Sprinkle brown sugar into a skillet, then put the chef’s rings into the sugar. Pack each ring with an upright banana. Next, tightly surround this with the split bananas to resemble the petals of a flour and pour the lemon juice over the top.
  3. To make the topping, put the flour, coconut and butter in food processor and process til it resemble coarse bread crumbs. Alternatively you can rub in by hand. Tip into a bowl and stir in the sugar
    Fill each ring to the top with the coconut topping. transfer the skillet to preheated oven and bake for about 25 minutes, til crumbles are golden. Remove form oven and slip a fish slice under each ring to lift them out of the pan and onto warmed serving plates.
  4. Carefully remove the rings and serve with pan juices spooned around the crumbles and cream.
