  1. In a small pan, bring the orange juice and 140g/5oz of the sugar slowly to the boil. Cut the passion fruit in half and scoop the pulp into the pan. Stir in the mango slices and when the mixture has reached boiling point again, remove the pan from the heat.

  2. Peel the bananas and slice each one diagonally into five. Pour the lime juice over the banana slices and set aside. Sprinkle the remaining sugar evenly over the base of a large heavy-based frying pan. Place the pan over a medium heat until the sugar has dissolved and turned into a golden caramel. Toss the bananas into the pan and leave for 3-4 minutes, turning once.

  3. Turn the heat down and stir in the passion fruit and mango mixture. Heat for a further 2 minutes then spoon into bowls. Serve warm with a sprinkling of lime zest. Can be made up to a day ahead and chilled, then gently reheated before serving.

This is a great recipe. I noted the comment that it was too sweet so I used 150g of sugar in the orange and passion fruit syrup instead of 200g. I served it for a dinner party after a rich main course (duck legs in port). My guests loved it and I will certainly use it again. Definitely 5 star

Very fruity, tasty dessert which definitely needs the passion fruit for flavour. Did find it very sweet though
