4 medium bananas -- (large, firm and ripe)
1 tablespoon lemon rind -- (grated)
2 tablespoons lemon juice
2 tablespoons demerara sugar
3 tablespoons orange marmalade
2 tablespoons dark rum
2 tablespoons water -- (2 to 3)
1 Cup fresh cream to serve
1 bunch fresh mint leaves and julienne strips of orange rind to decorate

Preparation / Directions:

1. Preheat oven to Gas Mark 6 / 200ºc / 400ºf. Trim ends of the bananas, removing about 1 cm from each end, cut a slit through the skin that extends the length of the fruit. Arrange them on a baking sheet and bake for 15 minutes or until the skins turn black.

2. Meanwhile, mix together the lemon and the juice, sugar, marmalade and water in a pan. Bring to the boil for 1 minute, then transfer to a serving dish.

3. Add the rum to the sauce in the serving dish and stir in. As soon as the bananas are cool, remove the skins and place them in the sauce. Coat the bananas on all sides of the sauce. Slice the bananas into diagonal chunks, decorate with mint leaves and orange rind. Serve at room temperature with cream.
