Mexican Fried Banana Dessert

A few days ago I was looking threw some of my Mexican dessert recipes and was reminded of Mexican fried bananas. These are so sweet and delicious!

If you've never tried them, you are in for a real treat when you give them a go.

Here's my Mexican Fried Bananas recipe:

4 ripe bananas (with brown spots just starting to appear), sliced
4 tbsp butter
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 tbsp lemon juice
1/4 cup orange juice
1 tsp ground cinnamon (or very finely grated cinnamon stick is even better)

Melt butter in a large skillet and add brown sugar, lemon and orange juice and cinnamon. Stir and cook until sugar is completely dissolved.

Add sliced bananas to the skillet and cook about 4 or 5 minutes, stirring often, until bananas are soft and sugar mixture has caramelized. Serve hot (over vanilla or chocolate ice cream is awesome!)
