Banana Candle

From the Australian Food History Timeline:

The National Library of Australia has this publication [Be Bold with Bananas] dated at 1972, although other sources are less certain of the date. This book, distributed in Australia by the Banana Growers Association, is a collector’s item. It’s best known for the infamous Banana Candle recipe – essentially a banana inserted vertically in a pineapple ring, drizzled with mayonnaise and topped with a slice of cherry.

Apparently the Banana Candle has a bit of a cult following. YouTube offers modern-day attempts to create and sample it.

Adding fried strips of bacon to the base of the candle dish - on top of the pineapple ring - would make a great breakfast dish!
