Sprinkle bananas with the juice from lemon.

Place the butter and brown sugar in a shallow glass plate or casserole and cook on high for one minute. Stir, then add the bananas and stir to coat each slice. Cook for one minute and forty five seconds, more on high. Stir once and spoon into dessert dishes.

Serve this fruity dessert with frozen yogurt or ice cream, sprinkled with chopped nuts.
