Here is our version of a classic American banana split, inspired by our recent trip to LA.
- Heat together all the ingredients for the sauce in a small saucepan over a low heat and stir until everything is combined. This can be made ahead of time and reheated just before serving.
- Halve the bananas lengthwise. Melt the butter in a non-stick pan over a medium-high heat. Add the sugar and cream and leave to melt for 1 minute. Lay the banana pieces on top, cut side up, and sprinkle with cinnamon. Cook for 1 minute. Turn bananas carefully and cook for another minute, basting with the pan sauce.
- To serve, place two banana halves in each dish, with scoops of icecream in between. Spoon over the butterscotch sauce and top with shaved almonds or other nuts and popcorn.
