Caramelize the cane sugar, reduce the heat and add the honey. When melting the honey, immediately add the butter to the pan.
Stir well, a light ‘foam’ is formed.
Add the chopped walnuts and fry briefly. Cut the bananas into quarters and roll the quarters in the resulting syrup for about 1 minute, they will take on a nice golden color.
Remove the bananas from the pan, increase the heat briefly and deglaze the mixture with brandy or, even better, cognac.
Allow to thicken slightly. In the meantime, portion the vanilla ice cream, add the bananas and pour the thickened syrup over them. The recipe comes from an American friend from Florida, who uses considerably more butter and honey. Tastes then even more delicious! P.S if no walnuts are at hand, do it also chopped peanuts.
