Geoff wrote from Australia of a desert called banana splits. We had a
similar desert that was a favorite when I was a Boy Scout some 30 years
ago called a Yukon Delight and the recipe was rumored to have come from a
Canadian unit at a World Jamboree.
In this case a banana is split lengthwise and then cut in half. The
pieces are coated with sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg, then reunited. The
banana is then wrapped and sealed in heavy foil and placed in the coals.
When it puffs out after about 10 to 20 minutes, its ready to eat. For the
finicky a spoon might help, otherwise fingers will work after it has
I've tried this one with Cubs and Webelos and they
usually end up making two or three to eat and another couple for family
just because its easy and they like the results.
