Cinnamon-Baked Bananas

Today’s dessert – Cinnamon-Baked Bananas – is no exception.  I tore this recipe out of Shape magazine months and months ago…  It seemed like a great way to treat myself with minimum effort using ingredients that I pretty much always have on hand.

Leaving the banana in its peel, I cut through the fruit lengthwise, leaving the bottom peel intact.  I also made two small horizontal slits at the top to make opening the fruit a bit easier.  I pulled the sides of the banana apart, dotted it with 1/2 teaspoon of butter, and then sprinkled it with 1/2 teaspoon of brown sugar and 1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon.

To cook it, I closed the banana and wrapped it in foil.  I put the foil packet directly on my center oven rack and baked it at 400F until it was hot and soft (10 minutes).  I (carefully) removed the foil, opened the banana, and enjoyed my treat!
