Ingredients: 200 grams of sugar, 25 grams of butter, 2 sprigs of rosemary, 5 bananas, ready-made puff pastry,
Preheat the oven at 180 degrees. Melt 25 grams of butter with 200 grams of sugar until golden. Stir always with a wooden spoon. Once the caramel is golden brown remove the pan from the heat. Place 2 sprigs of rosemary in the caramel. Peel 5 bananas and cut them into pieces (not too small). Put this into the caramel (caramel is very hot!). Cover the whole bottom with the banana. Cover with the ready-made puff pastry. Place the pan in the preheated oven for about 25 minutes or until you have nicely brown puff pastry. Remove the pan from the oven and leave it a few minutes to cool (not too long!). Invert the pan on a large plate. Remove the rosemary sprigs. Serve banana tarte tatin possibly with some ice!
Ingredients: 100 grams flour, salt, 20 grams icing sugar, 8 grams vanilla sugar, 16 grams baking powder, 200 ml water, 100 ml milk, 1 egg,
Mix 100g plain flour, a pinch of salt, 20g icing sugar, 8g vanilla sugar and 16g baking powder. Pour 200ml water and 100ml milk in and stir until you have a smooth mixture. Split 1 egg. Beat the egg yolk loose and beat the egg white until foam. Mix the egg yolk through the batter and gently fold in the egg white. Cover the bowl with a kitchen towel and let it slightly rise in a warm place. Melt oil or butter in the pan and fry the pancakes golden brown. We ate the pancakes with slices fruit like apple, banana and pear. With some cinnamon and raisins very delightful! Enjoy!
Because we didn’t like the apple tarte tatin, the caramel was bitter, we baked a birthday cake. Make a batter by mixing 250g sugar with 250g butter. Mix well and gradually add 4 eggs to the batter. Add 250g plain flour. Mix to a nice batter and then fold in 2 sliced bananas. Put the batter in a greased and floured cake tin. Place the cake tin in a preheated oven at 160c (Fan) for about 75 minutes. Enjoy!
For Babi Ketjap cook 2 finely chopped onions in hot oil until the onions are golden brown. Add 800g diced pork and cook brown. Add the herbs: 1 tablespoon koriander powder, 1 tablespoon cumin powder and 1 tablespoon ginger powder. Also add 1 finely chopped garlic clove, 2 tablespoons tomato puree, 5 tablespoons ketjap manis (sweet Indonesian soy sauce) and 1 tablespoon vinegar. Add some water, bring to boil, lower the heat and let it simmer for 3 hours. For banana chips: Heat oil and butter and fry slices banana (I took 4 bananas) 2 minutes each sides. Drain it on kitchen paper. Scatter some icing sugar over it when it still hot. We had rice and green beans in sweet & sour sauce with it. Enjoy!
Ingredients: 300 grams banana’s, 1 eggyolk, 130 grams caster sugar, 200 ml milk, 200 ml double cream,
Puree 300 grams banana’s in a blender or food processor with 1 eggyolk and 130 grams caster sugar. Stir the banana puree into 200 ml milk and 200 ml double cream. Chill the mixture in the fridge. Turn the Icecream maker on and fill it with the banana mixture. Follow the instructions of the ice cream maker and leave it on for about 30 minutes. If the mixture is still to soft put it in a well sealed plastic container and put it in the freezer for another 30 minutes. Than you can really enjoy your selfmade ice cream!
Another fruitcake, this time with a banana, peaches and a pear. Mix in a large bowl 125g butter with 225 caster suagar. Gradually add 3 eggs and 1 teaspoon vanilla sugar and combine. Add 200g selfraising flour and 125ml milk. Mix it until you have a smooth batter. Then peel 1 pear and 2 peaches and slice them in little pieces. Do it also with the banana and break 75g white chocolate in litte peaches. Add all those ingredients to the batter and stir it gently. Flour and grease a cake tin and spoon the batter into it. Place the cake tin in a preheated oven at 150g (fan) for about 60 or 90 minutes (after 60 minutes insert a skewer in the middle of the cake and when it comes out clean your cake is ready). Enjoy!
Ingredients: 1 pear, 1 banana, low-fat yoghurt, milk, sugar,
Peel the pear and slice it in little pieces. Do it in a blender and add in a banana chopped in slices, low-fat yoghurt, milk and some sugar (I don’t have the exact amounts of the ingredients, I’ve just tried a bit). Cover the lid and turn the blender on until you have a good smoothie. Enjoy!
