This delicious sauce can be served with any ice cream.


  • 110 g butter
  • 170 g dark soft brown, Barbados sugar
  • 110 g granulated sugar
  • 300 g golden syrup
  • 250 ml cream
  • ½ teaspoon pure vanilla essence
  • 3 bananas


Put the butter, sugars and golden syrup into a heavy-bottomed saucepan and melt gently on a low heat. Simmer for about 5 minutes, remove from the heat and gradually stir in the cream and the vanilla essence. Put back on the heat and stir for 2 or 3 minutes until the sauce is absolutely smooth.
