Some mornings I arise with an intense sweet craving – most of the times it’s when I’ve had my dinner before 7 pm, which is a common occurrence, and simply because of that, I believe I am entitled to a bit more sugar than usual. Luckily, I had some sourdough on hand to toast up in some lovely butter – a much needed essential. This is the vehicle that you build on with whatever your taste buds need – peanut butter and jam, caramelised bananas with spices, some extra honey for all that extra love!

Simple, easy, made in less than 10 minutes, 5 if you’re quick!

The Recipe


  • 2 sourdough slices
  • 1 tbsp butter, divided
  • 1 tbsp strawberry jam
  • 1 tbsp peanut butter
  • 1 banana, sliced
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • 2 tsp brown sugar
  • pinch of nutmeg
  • pinch of clove
  • honey
  • pistachios


  • Toast the sourdough slices in a hot pan with half the butter
  • Then spread peanut butter and jam onto both slices
  • In the same pan, melt the remaining butter and add the bananas, sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg and clove powder and sauté for a few minutes until sugar has melted and the bananas are nicely caramelised
  • Place the bananas on top of the toast, drizzle with some honey and sprinkle pistachios on top.
