Serves 1


1 slice of country-style bread

3 tablespoons Nutella

1 whole banana, sliced into thin, coin-like pieces

Regular granulated sugar

2 tablespoons peanuts, chopped and toasted

2 mint leaves, finely chopped into a chiffonade (stack the mint leaves, roll them, and slice into long thin strips)


Toast the bread. Once the bread slice is toasted, spread it with an even layer of Nutella. Arrange the banana slices so they overlap like fish scales on top of the Nutella layer.

Dust the banana with granulated sugar and caramelize very carefully with a hand-held brulée torch. If you don’t own a torch, you may use the broiler of your oven set on low, watching carefully to ensure that it does not over-caramelize or burn.

Garnish with the chopped peanuts and finish with the mint chiffonade.
