Ingredients
  • 2 cups half-and-half
  • 4 egg yolks
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 2 large bananas
  • 1 cup berries, your choice
  • 2 teaspoons ground ginger
  • Fresh mint, for garnish
Directions
  • Preheat oven to 300 degrees F.

  • Warm half-and-half in a saucepan until almost boiling and set aside to cool. In a bowl, beat egg yolks with 1/4 cup sugar until mixture turns pale. Slowly beat in small amounts of warm half-and-half until all is incorporated. Set custard mixture aside. Peel 1 1/2 bananas and slice thin, reserving other 1/2 banana for later. Wash berries.

  • Place some banana slices and a few berries in the bottom of 8 individual ramekins or custard cups. Sprinkle ground ginger evenly over bananas in each cup. Pour custard over fruit in each cup.

  • Place ramekins in baking pan. Add water to about halfway up the sides of ramekins. Bake for 1 hour or until tops are golden. Cool in refrigerator. Top each cooled ramekin with a few slices of the remaining banana. Sprinkle lightly with sugar. Place ramekins under broiler until sugar is melted and brown.

  • Garnish with remaining berries and 1 or 2 leaves of fresh mint.
