Bananas Foster

Yield:
6 to 8 servings
Level:
Easy
Ingredients
  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 cup light brown sugar, packed
  • 6 ripe bananas, peeled, sliced lengthwise and halved
  • 1/4 cup banana liqueur
  • 1/2 cup dark rum
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 pint vanilla ice cream
Directions
  • Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium-low heat. Add the brown sugar and stir until the sugar completely dissolves, about 2 minutes. Lay the bananas in the pan and cook on both sides until they become slightly soft and begin to brown, about 3 minutes. Remove the pan from the heat and add the banana liqueur and then the rum and cinnamon. Tip the pan slightly and carefully ignite the alcohol with a long kitchen match or kitchen lighter to flambe. Put the pan back on the heat and shake it back and forth basting the bananas, until the flame dies out.

  • Divide the ice cream among dessert bowls. Gently lift the bananas from the pan and place 2 pieces on the ice cream. Spoon the sauce over the ice cream and serve immediately.
