Method

  1. Toss the sliced bananas with 10g brown sugar. Melt 5g (a teaspoon) butter in a frying pan set over a medium heat and add the bananas. Toss over the heat for a couple of minutes until caramelised, but still holding their shape. Set aside on a warm plate and keep warm.
  2. To make the butterscotch sauce, warm all the remaining ingredients through in the frying pan until the butter melts, stirring to form a sauce. Set aside.
  3. Preheat the grill to medium. Brush the cut surfaces of the croissants with the melted butter. Combine the sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl and sprinkle lightly and evenly over the buttered croissant surfaces. Put the croissants on a baking tray, cut-sides up, and grill for 45 seconds to 1 minute, until caramelised. Keep warm.
  4. Lightly whip the double cream and yogurt with the icing sugar and serve spoonfuls with the grilled croissants, caramelised bananas and salted butterscotch sauce.

Cooks tip: If this is destined to be eaten by grown-ups, feel free to add a splash of rum or whisky to the butterscotch sauce for a bit of a kick.
