Baked Banana Dumplings with Gin & Lemon Sauce

For the banana dumplings:
6 small bananas
1/4 cup caster sugar
2 heaped tsp ground cinnamon
6 sheets pre-rolled puff or flaky pastry, cut into 20cm x 20cm squares
1 egg for glazing

For the lemon sauce:
Rind and juice of 1 large lemon
3 heaped tsp sugar
250ml water
3 Tbsp Prenzel Blenheim Bay Gin

To make the dumplings, peel the bananas, mix the sugar and cinamon together and roll the bananas in this to coat thickly. Place a banana in the middle of each pastry square and roll up like a croissant. Seal edges with water and cut a couple of small slashes in the top of each roll. To glaze, beat the egg and brush over the parcels completely. Place on a baking tray and cook in an oven preheated to 210°C until pastry is golden. Serve warm with the Prenzel Blenheim Bay Gin and lemon sauce. To make the sauce, remove the rind from the lemon in thin strips and cut into fine julienne (matchsticks). Put julienne into a saucepan with the sugar and water, stirring over a low heat until the sugar has dissolved, then cover the pan and allow to simmer for about 20 minutes. Remove from the heat, place in a small jug and strain the juice of the lemon into the sauce. Add the gin just before serving.
