Whilst out to dinner at our friends Susan’s recently, she served us with a delicious salted caramel sauce which she had made in her Thermomix, and was it delicious! We are both big Thermomix fans, always trying new recipes and this one is a real winner. So later this week I was thinking, what else this amazing sauce would complement? And seeing that Winter is upon us and very much crumble season, the fresh flavours of banana, coconut and blueberry with a hint of warm maple would be perfect. Enjoy ;0)

Serves 4

Ingredients

4 ripe bananas
1 cup blueberries
1/2 cup shredded coconut
1/3 cup sugar
1/2 cup maple syrup

For the crumble topping

1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup light brown sugar
2 tablespoons sugar
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
5 tablespoons butter, cubed
1/2 cup chopped pecans, divided

Thermomix Salted Caramel Sauce

125 g butter
125 mls cream
250 g dark brown sugar
1 tbsp vanilla bean paste

Method

Preheat oven to 200c
Thinly slice the bananas and place them in a bowl with the blueberries, coconut, sugar and maple syrup and stir to combine. Fill four oven poof dishes, making sure you have enough space for the crumble topping and set aside.

For the crumble topping, pulse first 5 ingredients in a food processor 3 or 4 times, or until combined. Add butter and 1/4 cup pecans; pulse 4 or 5 times, or until pecans are ground.

Transfer mixture to a bowl; stir in remaining 1/4 cup chopped pecans with your hands, mixing and squeezing to form larger pieces. Place on a baking tray in the oven and bake until golden then set aside.

Place the fruit pots in the oven for 25 mins until bubbling, remove from the oven and top with your prepared crumble topping.

For the sauce place all ingredients into TM bowl and cook 5-8 min/Varoma/speed 2/MC off.

If you don’t have a Thermomix, throw all the sauce ingredients in a saucepan and stir to combine. Cook until bubbling and thickened.
