I haven’t been able to experiment with new and impressive recipes lately. Hubby and I were away during the weekend, we stayed the night at a hotel in the city and got pampered with room service and restaurant meals. Weeknights are generally busy and I tend to cook really simple food just to keep us going. One weeknight, as I was wondering whether or not I should make dessert… I’ve noticed a couple of browning bananas and initially thought I’d make my banana fritters.
However, the thought of messy gooey batter and cleaning up the wok and stove after deep frying turned that idea off completely…
So instead, I thawed a couple of puff pastry sheets and experimented with this recipe. Turned out quite delicious! And SO simple to make, only four ingredients. Now that’s my kind of weeknight treat 🙂

Ingredients:

2 puff pastry sheets
2 browning bananas
4 tbsp Nutella spread
Some melted butter
Method:
Lightly brush melted butter onto the surface of the puff pastry sheets. Top each sheet with 2 tbsp Nutella, and place one browning banana on each pastry sheet. Gently roll puff pastry sheet over the banana, tuck it in under the banana, and continue rolling. Squeeze ends of pastry sheet before cooking in preheated oven at 180C for approx. 15-20 minutes.
Slice into 3-4 pieces and serve warm with ice-cream (optional).
I promise I will pick up my slack very soon! With Easter holidays approaching, I should have plenty of time to come up with something amazing, hopefully. My parents will be visiting from Malaysia too, so it is time to impress them, hehe.
Also, I’m organising a Food Bloggers / Twitter dinner event next Monday on the 11th April at The Provincial Hotel in Fitzroy. Last time I was there, I had a whole suckling pig. This time, we will be treated to a wonder 3 course pig menu with dessert as part of the month of April’s Pork Festival at The Provincial. Can’t wait! 15 people have confirmed so far… if you’re based in Melbourne, and would like to join us, please let me know!

  1. When I first read the post title and saw the photo, I though it will be something with honey as I recall trying once on a trip! But this is such simple and delicious looking idea! Makes me hungry! Culinary experiments don't have to be elaborate to be impressive 😉

  2. yum! make these all the time.. but with bananas, chocolate chips and peanut butter ( nutella gives me nosebleeds for whatever strange reason..)A tweak on a primary school treat where we used to roll up bread, peanut butter and sliced bananas like swiss rolls. gota love puff pastry… other quick treats like melted choc and hazelnuts bits, cheese and herb twists…. yummy 😀

  3. Yum! I had a version of that at a local gourmet place but the nutella filling sounds so much better. I would so love to join in the pork fest but unfortunately won't be over in Melbourne at that time. Enjoy yourselves!
