Broiled Brown Sugar-Vanilla Bananas Atop Ricotta

The humble, healthful banana is elevated to elegant heights when sugared and fanned out atop lightly spiced ricotta.

Cook's Notes

For an even faster dessert, broil sweetened banana, mango, or pear slices or halved pineapple by itself in an oven-proof dish. Top with ice cream, yogurt, or creme fraiche if desired. To broil fruit without ricotta, pat the sugar mixture into 1 pound of sliced fruit. Broil, rotating dish halfway through, until golden brown, 2 to 3 minutes.

    This had an unusual taste and texture which was not especially pleasant.

    I have to say that I will not be making this recipe again and if I do, I will be making some significant modifications. The nutmeg and the vanilla was overpowering. If I attempt this recipe again, I will substitute cinnamon for the nut and I will encorporate the vanilla into the ricotta. I would also add some granulated sugar to the ricotta to make it slightly sweeter. Definitely NOT a hit
