Kari's Bananas to Die For recipe

Here as promised is the recipe.
It is fast, totally yummy, and sure to be nutritious with all those bananas and dairy products.

Kari’s Bananas in Liquor & Caramel
4 portions

175 g brown sugar ( a little over ¾ cup)
2 dl heavy cream (3/4 cup + 2 teaspoons: Kari says she uses a shy cup)
100 grams unsalted butter (3 ½ ounces)
2 ss Cointreau (2 tablespoons)
4 bananas, sliced
50 grams pecans or walnuts, chopped (2 ounces or so)
plain yogurt to garnish.

In a sauce pot over medium heat, cook the brown sugar, cream, and butter, stirring until the sugar is dissolved. Cook 3 minutes, remove from the heat and allow to cool briefly. Stir in the Cointreau.

Add the bananas, and combine gently with the sauce.

Spoon into serving bowls, garnish with a dollop of yogurt and a sprinkle of chopperd nuts.

Thanks for the translation.
What do you think about sneaking in a dollop of whipped cream instead of the yogurt..."I'm just sayin'..."
