Baked Banana & Ice cream Dessert For Drivers

>>  7/14/2011

The "Drivers" dessert was inspired by a baked banana recipe what I have found on a new cooking service I have never tasted a baked banana before, so then I saw an original recipe of grilled bananas with milk chocolate in Jam Hands blog I understood I should give it a try. 

To make a "Drivers" Dessert you need:

  • baked banana with chocolate,
  • ice cream,
  • any syrup,
  • garnishes form pear and apple in a shape of gear-wheels and traffic signs (like the one in the Lightning McQueen watermelon project).

How to bake bananas with chocolate

For 2 persons I took 2 bananas and a kind of chocolate we use for a chocolate fountain. Slit banana in half  and stuff it with chocolate. Bake for 5-7 minutes. 

While I had my bananas baking I took a time to make fruit garnishes.

Gear-wheel garnish from a pear

you need a thai knife and an apple corer

cut a pear off  and make it round. 

use an apple corer to thirl the pear item in the center

create a gear-wheel design in the pear item using a thai knife
Serve a dessert

Ripe some syrup in the bottom of the dessert bowl. Add ice cream and hot baked bananas. Fill the bowl in with ice cream and garnish the dessert with a pear gear-wheels and some berries ( I used honeysuckle from my mother garden ;))

Gear-wheels carved in a pear

The important note: eat the dessert immediately while the chocolate is melt down and the ice cream is frozen. Mmm.. yum-yum

I've made the Lightning McQueen watermelon bowl to a little boy's birthday. Kiryll, or Kirya for short, is a name of the birthday guy. I carved the letters in red apples and attached them to the pineapple slices to create traffic signs.

The watermelon is carved as a basket. You see an image in the front side and enjoy fruits from the basket on the other hand.
Next I've got an idea to add a mechanics aspect. Please meet a spanner from a watrmelon skin and gearwheels from green apple!


If you like to carve Lightning McQueen watermelon I have attached a stencil of the car.
