2 tablespoons salted butter

1/2 cup orange juice

1/4 cup packed light brown sugar

1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice

2 bananas

1/4 cup bourbon

1 pint vanilla ice cream

1/4 cup chopped pecans or walnuts


  1. Melt the butter in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Stir in the orange juice, brown sugar and pumpkin pie spice and bring to a simmer. Slice the bananas and add to the skillet, stirring to coat. Saute until the bananas are tender and the sauce coats them, 2 to 3 minutes. Turn off the heat and add the bourbon. Light the liquid in the skillet with a click lighter and flambe, allowing the flames to subside. Turn on the heat and cook about 1 minute. Serve in bowls, warm, over vanilla ice cream with a sprinkle of nuts.
