I recently discovered an American dessert called ‘Banana Foster’. There are variations and one of them is ‘Peach Foster’. Again, the American recipes scared me because of the amount of Butter and Sugar they use. This is my version. It is very similar to my family’s ‘Hot Fruit Salad’. This dessert is absolutely sweet enough for me.
