Ghana. Camp 12. Banana Ghana.

Banana Ghana - A traditional Ghanaian recipe- and something from Brazil !

The Camp 12 loves the food and prepares meals from Spain, Tunisia, Italy, Brazil, Slovenia, Russia and Greece- we eat so much and so good every day!! Ilaria from Italy found out a unique recipe from Ghana and she decided to try it out (without alcohol!). It worked pretty well!

Here is the recipe :

  • Cut 8 medium BANANAS in half lengthwise and then crosswise.

  • Blend: 1/4 cup SUGAR and 1 teaspoons CINNAMON

  • Dip the bananas in this mixture until coated.

  • Place the four quarters cut side down, side by side, in a 9-inch round or square ovenproof dish.

  • Blend 1 cup orange juice along with. 3 Tbs. Apricot Brandy

  • Pour the orange juice-brandy mixture on the bananas

  • Put in the oven for 20 minutes at approximately 200 C

  • Served with coconut flakes (optional)

(Don’t judge a book by its cover ;) )


It turned out to be one of our favourite desserts for the entire camp duration (we prepared it more than once!) along with the Brazilian Brigadeiro (recipe below!) from Deisiane :


  • 2 soup spoon of 70% cacao

  • 1 soup spoon of chocolate

  • 1 can of condensed milk (about 400g)

  • A tea spoon of butter

  • Granulate

  • How to make it ?

  • Put the butter in a pan at the low fire until it becames liquid.

  • Add the condensed milk

  • Mix it. Add the cacao and powdery chocolate

  • Mix it carefully for 15 min. Turn off the fire.

  • Put the chocolate on the plate and start to make balls - when it is not so hot anymore (if you think it's difficult put some butter on your hand to help)

  • Cover the balls with granulate….. WOW!!
