This easy dessert sauce makes a great topping for ice cream, puddings, cakes, and more.

How to Make It

Step 1

Puree the banana in a food processor until very smooth.

Step 2

Cook the sugar and ½ cup water in a medium pot over medium heat, stirring, until the sugar is just dissolved, 2 to 3 minutes. Continue to cook, without stirring, until the syrup is a dark golden brown, 14 to 16 minutes more. (If dark spots start to appear in the sugar mixture, gently swirl the pan to incorporate.)

Step 3

Remove from heat and carefully add the vanilla, salt, and banana puree (the mixture will sputter); stir until combined.
