5 Tbsp butter 
2/3 cup brown sugar
1 egg 
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup orange juice
3 bananas, very ripened
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda 
1 pinch sea salt

  2. Heat the butter in a sauce pan until lighting browned, stirring often. Remove from heat, transfer to a bowl and let cool for 10 minutes. 
  3. Meanwhile, mash the brown sugar, egg, vanilla, orange juice and bananas until well combined. Slowly add the browned butter. Fold in the flour, baking powder, soda and salt with a spatula.
