Grilled Banana Bread with Vanilla Ice Cream and Homemade Caramel Sauce

 When it comes to finding an authentic grilled dessert, those are hard to locate.  Last year I made a Grilled Strawberry Shortcake that went crazy, so I decided to try another take of a grilled dessert: Grilled Banana Bread. Grilling the bread brings out the flavors of the banana and then topping it with a premium vanilla ice cream and homemade caramel sauce completes this decadent dessert.

Look at those grill marks!  Each one of those is melted sugars from the bread and is crunchy and yummy.  A bite of that, ice cream and caramel sauce will send you over the moon.

Best part:  All of it can be made in advance.  Have the bread and sauce ready to go and bring out the ice cream when the bread goes on the grill.  Plate the bread and let your guests add the toppings to their hearts' desire!
