Banana Galette

The other night, it was just my son and I, since Daddy was working.  We both wanted a special treat so I searched through my “pile” to find a recipe that my 4 year old could help make.

These Banana Galettes, a recipe from Everyday Food magazine, looked easy enough (and tasty enough), plus there were plenty of tasks my little sous chef could handle! But, I have to say, I had no idea what a “galette” was…and, truth be told, I still don’t really know!

The Recipe

2-8 inch tortillas
1 Tbsp butter, melted
1/4 cup dark brown sugar, packed
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 Tbsp water
4 Tbsp butter
4 bananas

Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Place tortillas on a baking sheet; brush both sides with melted butter.  Bake for 7-8 minutes, or until golden.  If they puff up, press down with a spatula.  In a small saucepan, stir together brown sugar, cinnamon and water over medium heat.  Stir in butter until melted.  Slice bananas diagonally 1/4 inch thick; arrange in overlapping circles on tortillas.  Brush brown sugar mixture over bananas.  Bake for 10 minutes or until shiny.  Cut into wedges and serve warm with ice cream!

This recipe was so much fun to make!  I love cooking with my son — he’s really starting to master his knife skills (with a butter knife, of course!).  We both had a blast!  And, we both enjoyed these tasty banana galettes!

I wondered what happened to the 4th banana!

I was surprised at how simple they were to make, and how good they were to eat.  Definitely an easy throw together dessert to have on a special weeknight!

Maybe next time, I’ll drizzle them with chocolate sauce and serve with nuts, whipped cream and a cherry!  It would be just like a banana split!

  1. So, awesome that your son was helping you. I LOVE when my kids want to cook with me ! Thanks for linking to THIS WEEK’S CRAVINGS! Make sure to come back next week for “Romantic Dinner Ideas”

  2. I just signed up for your site and was wondering how I can print just the recipe. I tried to print the chicken cobbler casserole and got about 6 pages. Thanks for your help.

    • Hi Jeannie — I don’t have a “print recipe” feature yet on my blog….it’s something I’m working on. In the meantime, you select the recipe portion and then copy and paste it into a word processing document (like Word) you should be able to print it that way.

      Hope this helps. Thanks for reading!
