All About

Bananas

In their most natural form, bananas may be the perfect portable food: Just peel and you have a sweet, potassium-rich, energizing treat. The tropical fruit is wonderful in cold banana recipes like smoothies, ice creams, cream pies, and downright magical when heated to make caramelized bananas or banana cake.

recipe

Silken tofu and almond milk give this vegan French toast its creamy, custardy texture. A double dose of bananas makes a sweet start to the day. This recipe works best with day old bread. If using a fresh baguette, let soak in custard for half the time.

recipe

Dancing with the flavors of the tropics is simple when mangoes are on hand. This upside-down cake offers a dazzling showcase -- the ripe fruit nestles in a simple caramel, its golden hues and honeyed taste deepening as it bakes. Banana and rum add more tropical notes and help keep the cake moist, from first bite to last crumb.
