The key player in this very decadent recipe is the orange juice which is used to make the suzette sauce.

I discovered this recipe very recently on a TV show. I decided to give this a try and from then on, I have been hooked. This is one dessert that redefines the word decadence. Bananas in suzette sauce, unlike other desserts does not contain cheese, cream or any other ingredients that is loaded with calories. The key player in this recipe is the Orange juice which is used to make the suzette sauce. The sauce is sweetened by caramelized sugar and the flavours are further enhanced by the use of cardamom and nutmeg.
I have made a few changes to the original recipe by reducing the sugar from 2/3 cup to 5 tbsp and by replacing the cinnamon powder with nutmeg. Give this recipe a try and I am sure you will floored like I am right now.
