A combination of two favourite desserts: brûlée and banana custard! We love the layer of caramelised fruit on top of this brûlée, and it works just as well with strawberries, mangoes or other fruits in season. Or be traditional, and omit the fruit altogether.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
2 cups low-fat milk
1/4 cup skimmed milk powder
1/4 cup caster sugar
2 tablespoons cornflour
2 eggs, beaten
1 banana, sliced
sponge fingers or biscotti, to serve

Method

  1. Combine the milk, milk powder and 2 tablespoons of the sugar in a heavy-based saucepan. Blend a little of the liquid into the cornflour, mixing until smooth. Tip this back into the saucepan and add the beaten eggs.
  2. Bring to the boil over a medium heat, stirring constantly. Reduce the heat and simmer for 3 minutes to cook the flour. Spoon into 4 ramekin dishes and chill overnight.
  3. Preheat the grill to its highest setting. Just before serving, top each ramekin with an even layer of banana slices. Sprinkle with the remaining sugar, coating the bananas evenly. Grill for 2–4 minutes until the sugar caramelises.
  4. Serve with sponge fingers or biscotti.
