Ingredients
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 4 bananas, peeled and sliced into 1-inch pieces
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons white rum
  • 1/4 cup orange juice (preferably freshly squeezed from 1 orange)
  • 2 oranges, peeled and segmented
  • 2 pints vanilla ice cream
  • Mint sprigs, for garnish
Directions
  • Melt 2 tablespoons of butter in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Place the bananas in the butter, cut side down. Pour the sugar around the bananas and let it cook until it starts to caramelize, moving the bananas around a bit to ensure even browning.

  • Remove the skillet from heat; add in the rum, and orange juice. Return the skillet to heat and let reduce for a minute. Turn the bananas and let the juices reduce for another minute.

  • Remove the skillet from heat and swirl in the remaining tablespoon of butter.

  • Serve the bananas in shallow bowls drizzled with the caramel pan sauce. Top with orange segments and a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Garnish with a sprig of mint.
