Prep:5min  ›  Cook:15min  ›  Ready in:20min 

  1. In a deep pot, combine all ingredients and cook over medium-low heat until it boils, stirring occasionally.
  2. After it boils cover partially, leaving a good opening for steam to escape, and reduce the heat to a minimum. When the sauce becomes reddish, it is ready.
  3. Serve hot plain or with vanilla ice cream. When cold, store in a glass jar with lid in refrigerator for up to one week.

Only had 3 bananas so reduced recipe to fit and it worked well. Used ground cinnamon and ommited the cloves but still very tasty with pancakes and ice cream. - 04 Mar 2014
