Cook Time

  • 3/4 cup (125g) roasted macadamia nuts, chopped
  • 1 1/2 cup plain flour
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 125g butter, melted

Filling

  • 395g can sweetened condensed milk
  • 60g butter, chopped
  • 2 tbs golden syrup
  • 2 large firm ripe bananas

1

Preheat oven 180°C fan forced. Line base and sides 5cm deep, 18cm x 28cm (base) slice pan allowing a 2cm overhang at both long ends.

2

Combine the macadamia nuts, flour and brown sugar in a bowl. Add the butter, mix until well combined. Remove ¾ cup (175g) mixture. Press the remaining mixture evenly into the lined pan. Bake 15 minutes or until light golden around the edges.

3

Meanwhile, combine sweetened condensed milk, butter and golden syrup in a medium non-stick saucepan. Stir constantly over medium heat, for 6-8 minutes or until the caramel thickens (see tip).

4

Peel and slice the bananas into 1cm-thick rounds. Fold into the warm caramel then carefully spread over the warm base. Crumble over the reserved macadamia mixture. Bake a further 15 minutes until top is golden. Set aside to cool completely. Cut into pieces to serve.

TIPS

You can cook the caramel in the microwave; combine the ingredients in a 2 litre heatproof microwave-safe bowl. Microwave uncovered on High/100%, whisking every minute, for 4-5 minutes or until the caramel thickens.
