2 Firm-ripe bananas
1/4 stick Unsalted butter; melted, cooled
3 tablespoons brown sugar; firmly packed
1/4 pound Good-quality chocolate; chopped
1/2 teaspoon Cinnamon
1/3 cup Half-and-half
Vanilla ice cream
Preheat grill pan.
Peel bananas and halve lengthwise.
In a shallow baking pan large enough to hold bananas in one layer stir together butter and brown sugar and add bananas, tossing gently to coat.
Transfer bananas with a metal spatula to an oiled grill pan and grill until browned and cooked through, about 2 minutes on each side. (If bananas are difficult to handle you may grill them on 1 side only.)
In a heavy saucepan heat chopped chocolate, cinnamon and half-and-half over low heat, stirring frequently, until chocolate is melted.
Serve bananas like a banana split with ice cream and chocolate sauce.
