This recipe comes once again courtesy of Paula Deen and was also another "husband requested" one. My husband just loves Paula Deen and he had seen her make these on the Food Network. He had been asking me if I had curry and I told him, yes I did. Then a few days later he asked if I had curry and I said I did. He wanted to be SURE I had curry and I told him "YES I DO!" Anyhow, I finally decided to give them a try and I crushed my cornflakes and melted the butter that the curry was supposed to be mixed into. Well, guess what? I'm all set to go and I have NO curry!!! Did I feel stupid.....yes! Too late to turn back at this point so I just dipped the bananas in the melted butter and cornflakes and sprinkled on some cinnamon sugar. My husband loved these but to me they were just ok. Not my thing. I'm posting them because even though I didn't care much for them, some of you may like them. My husband raved about them so that should give you an idea of how they are!!!! I will try them again, this time WITH curry! That may cut down some of the sweetness from the banana.....just make sure the bananas are firm otherwise they will become too soft while baking.
4 firm bananas, peeled
6 tablespoons melted butter
1 teaspoon curry powder
2 cups crushed cornflakes
Sugar, for sprinkling, optional
Preheat the oven to 450F.
Halve the bananas lengthwise, then crosswise. In a bowl, mix the butter and curry powder. Dip the bananas in the butter, coat well. Roll the bananas in the cornflakes until completely coated. Sprinkle with sugar, if desired. Place the bananas in a greased baking dish and bake for 10 minutes.
