Total Time

Prep/Total Time: 5 min.

Carol Schlagenhauser shares a delightful dessert that couldn’t be easier. “I’ve been making this simple treat since I was a young girl,” she writes from Butler, Ohio. “It resembles a banana split but without the mess and expense.”


  • 1 medium banana
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 cup vanilla ice cream


  1. Slice banana in half lengthwise; cut each in half widthwise. Divide banana slices between two microwave-safe dessert dishes. Dot with butter; sprinkle with brown sugar.
  2. Microwave, uncovered, on high for 25-30 seconds or until butter and brown sugar are melted. Top with ice cream.
