Cooking with Kids: Broiled Banana Sundaes

  • Author: Marie Bostwick
  • Yield: 2 servings 1x


  • 2 medium-size bananas
  • 2 T butter, cut into small pieces
  • 2 T brown sugar
  • Ground cinnamon
  • Ice cream – (flavor of your choice)
  • Optional sundae toppings (see post for ideas)


  1. Position an oven rack about 3-4 inches below the broiler. Preheat the broiler while preparing the bananas. Cover a rimmed baking sheet with foil.
  2. Peel the bananas. Cut each banana in half crossways, then cut the in half again lengthwise. Place sliced bananas on the prepared baking sheet, cut side up.
  3. Dot the bananas with small pieces of butter. Sprinkle a dash of cinnamon onto each banana. Spoon on the brown sugar, dividing it equally among the bananas.
  4. Place the baking pan on the pre-positioned rack under the broiler. Broil the bananas for 1-2 minutes, just until the butter and sugar melts, and remove baking sheet from the oven. Keep a close eye so the bananas don’t burn!
  5. Scoop ice cream into bowls and top with the warm, broiled bananas and any optional sundae topping you’ve decided to try. Serve immediately and enjoy every yummy bite!
