Happy 50th Jittery Cook post!  Your positive response fuels the Jittery Cook blog. Research shows that there are  ingredients that could theoretically be combined into 10 quadrillion recipes — of which only one million, just .0000001%, have already been recorded. So between the already recorded recipes and the ones yet to be created, Jittery Cook may have enough raw material to keep going indefinitely.

Many years ago an elderly gentleman shared this Baked Banana recipe with me, and I’ve been enjoying it ever since. It is more of an idea than a recipe, but it tastes so good, I couldn’t resist sharing.

Baked Banana Ingredients (per serving)

Place the banana in the microwave on a plate. Cover it with a splatter guard or loosely with a paper towel. Cook for 1 1/2 to 2 minutes, until deflated. Carefully remove from the microwave using an oven mitt.

Serve hot, bathed in its own juices, for dessert or as a snack, with your preferred yogourt.

This is merely the third Jittery Cook dessert to date. The ingredients are healthy, so there is no need for post dessert regret.

Thank you to my good friend and coworker, Cheryl Weiss, for tipping me off to using a baggie to pipe yogourt.

Special mention however, for the posts that include Romanesco, which is exquisite to look at and tastes delicious:
