Method

Take four bananas as large as possible and cut them in two lengthways (one would do for two people). Remove the flesh and squeeze it through a hair sieve. Put in a sauté pan a tablespoonful of flour and one of castor sugar, dilute with a tumblerful of hot milk, bring to the boil slowly and cook a little more, whipping all the time. When it has thickened, add the mashed bananas, a few pieces of butter, the yolks of two eggs and three whites whipped to a stiff froth.

Fill the banana skins with this mixture, put them on a fireproof dish and cook about six to eight minutes in a hot oven. When they are three parts cooked sprinkle icing sugar all over, which will be slightly browned when finished. Serve at once.
