  1. Beat egg yolks with 75g sugar over simmering water until light and fluffy. Set aside.
  2. Heat a non-stick pan until very hot. Add remaining sugar and caramelise to a medium-brown colour. Add water, it will splutter and the sugar will solidify before it dissolves.
  3. Stir in bananas and cook for about 2 minutes. Add the rum and flambe the mixture. Cool and puree. Gently fold in egg yolk mixture and whipped cream.
  4. Line a terrine or loaf tin with cling film, making sure that it extends beyond the rim. Pour banana mixture into the terrine and cover with cling film. Freeze for at least 6 hours.
  5. Serve sliced, garnished with raspberries, if desired.
