4 firm ripe bananas (not sugar bananas, Cavendish-style bananas are best).
2 tablespoons butter or oil


Peel the bananas and fry in the butter or oil, turning them gently
until the natural sugars caramelise and they are golden brown all over.
They may be cut across in half to make shorter pieces which are easier
to handle.

Serve warm.
