Banana chocolate strudel ready to eat

This is a recipe that I have made several times and it never fails to impress.

It looks professional and is really very simple to make.

I have used some ginger this time however it is quite an overpowering taste, so if you do not like ginger, leave this out.

Preparation Time: 15 minutes
Cooking Time: 25 minutes
Makes: 8 servings

4-5 bananas (Lady Fingers work well but are expensive)
60g dark chocolate, chopped
2 sheets puff pastry
Melted butter or a beaten egg for glazing
1 tsp crystallized ginger, finely cut (optional)

Defrost the pastry if using frozen, and preheat the oven to 200c or 185 if fan forced.

Cut the chocolate (I always buy Lindt 70% when it is on special, and it is no more expensive than a good brand of cooking chocolate).

Cut the chocolate into small pieces

Chop the bananas and mix with ginger and chocolate.

Mix the three ingredients gently

If using frozen pastry, I find this is a bit thick so roll it out a bit and throw some out if you also prefer thinner pastry.

Cut the pastry sheets in half and place one quarter of the mixture along the centre of each pastry piece.

Roll up totally, pinching the ends so liquid will not seep out.
