Ingredients

1 pint vanilla ice cream

1/4 cup (1/2 stick) unsalted butter

1/2 cup dark brown sugar

4 bananas, peeled and cut lengthwise into halves

1/4 cup dark rum, preferably Jamaican

Directions

  1. Scoop the ice cream into chilled bowls and set aside in the refrigerator. In a large saute pan, over medium-high heat, stir the butter and sugar to form smooth syrup. Add the bananas and baste for 1 minute. Carefully pour in the rum. If it does not burst into flames spontaneously, ignite with a match. Gently swirl the pan and baste the bananas until the flames die out. Place 3 quarters of a banana around each ice cream scoop and spoon sauce over top. Serve at once.;
