AT A GLANCE
Make the sauce ahead and just warm it before assembling this dessert.
|01||For salted caramel sauce, spread caster sugar over the base of a large saucepan and cook without stirring over medium-high heat until a light caramel forms around the edge (3-5 minutes). Gently tilt and swirl the pan so caramel forms evenly until most of the sugar is melted, and the caramel is deep golden and just begins to smoke (3-5 minutes). Add butter, cream and vanilla (carefully – the hot caramel will spit), and salt to taste. Reduce heat to medium and cook, stirring occasionally, until caramel dissolves and a thick sauce forms (3-5 minutes). Set aside to cool.|
|02||Whisk cream and crème fraîche to soft peaks.|
|03||To serve, divide banana slices among small bowls. Top with ice-creams, whipped cream and peanuts, and drizzle with salted caramel.|
