Ingredients

For the berry sauce:

  • 100 g strawberries
  • 100 g raspberries
  • 1 Tbs honey
  • splash of lemon juice

To assemble:

  • 4 brioche buns
  • whipped cream
  • 4 bananas
  • sprinkles optional

Instructions

  • Start by making the berry sauce. Wash and hull the strawberries, then place in a small saucepan with the raspberries and honey. Add a splash of lemon juice, then place on a medium heat and gently bring to a simmer.
  • Turn down the heat to low and stir, then continue to cook on a low heat for 3-4 minutes, stirring occasionally to help mash up the fruit.
  • Leave to cool a little, then pour into a sieve over a bowl. Mash as much of the fruit through the sieve as possible, then decant the sauce into a squeezy bottle to use as berry 'ketchup' on your hot dogs. Pop the bottle into the fridge to cool before using, this will help to thicken up the sauce a little.
  • Once the sauce is ready, it's time to assemble your banana 'hot dogs'! Slice the brioche buns down the centre and peel the bananas. Find the other ingredients and have them to hand, ready to assemble.
  • Spray or pipe whipped cream down the centre of each split brioche bun.
  • Place a banana into each cream-filled brioche roll. Top with a drizzle of berry sauce and finish with sprinkles, if wanted.

Notes

Notes: If you are short on time, you can of course use a ready-made berry sauce, but the homemade one is delicious and generally lower in sugar if you have time to make it yourself.
I used spray cream from a can to save time but you could also whip your own and pop into a piping bag if you prefer.
