Banana Crumble


1-1/2 cups fresh breadcrumbs

1/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar

1/4 cup granulated white sugar

3/4 tsp. cinnamon

1/4 tsp. nutmeg

4 Tbsp. butter, melted

1 Tbsp. Angostura® aromatic bitters

6 large bananas, peeled and sliced into1/2” thick slices

Angostura Butter Sauce:

4 Tbsp. butter

1/2 cup powdered sugar

1/4 tsp. cinnamon

1-2 Tbsp. milk, room temperature

1 tsp. ANGOSTURA Aromatic Bitters


Preheat oven to 350°F. Lightly butter a 9” deep-dish pie plate.

For crumble:

In a medium bowl, stir together breadcrumbs, sugars, cinnamon, nutmeg, 4 tablespoons melted butter and 1 tablespoon Angostura bitters. Slice half the bananas and arrange in the buttered pie plate. Sprinkle bananas with 1/2 crumb mixture. Repeat, making another layer. Bake 40 minutes or until crumbs get slightly more brown.

For sauce:

In a 1-cup measuring cup, microwave 4 tablespoons butter on low for 10 seconds or until soft; whisk until smooth. Whisk in powdered sugar and cinnamon until smooth. Stir in Angostura bitters. Add 1 tablespoon room temperature milk and whisk until well blended. If sauce is too thick to pour, whisk in another tablespoon milk.

Drizzle 1 tablespoon sauce over each serving of warm banana crumble just before serving.

Makes 8 servings.
