Ingredients

  • juice of 1 large orange
  • 200g golden caster sugar
  • 4 ripe passion fruits
  • 1 medium-sized ripe mango, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 4 firm large bananas
  • 1 large lime, grated zest and juice

Method

  1. In a small pan, bring the orange juice and 140g/5oz of the sugar slowly to the boil. Cut the passion fruit in half and scoop the pulp into the pan. Stir in the mango slices and when the mixture has reached boiling point again, remove the pan from the heat.

  2. Peel the bananas and slice each one diagonally into five. Pour the lime juice over the banana slices and set aside. Sprinkle the remaining sugar evenly over the base of a large heavy-based frying pan. Place the pan over a medium heat until the sugar has dissolved and turned into a golden caramel. Toss the bananas into the pan and leave for 3-4 minutes, turning once.

  3. Turn the heat down and stir in the passion fruit and mango mixture. Heat for a further 2 minutes then spoon into bowls. Serve warm with a sprinkling of lime zest. Can be made up to a day ahead and chilled, then gently reheated before serving.
