Banana’s Foster is a dessert that originated in New Orleans. Typically it is bananas, rum, banana liqueur, cinnamon, and brown sugar. In my recipe, I omitted the liqueur and cinnamon- but I did not taste the difference!! This dessert is so easy to make that it is not necessary to be confined to all the ingredients! Do as you please and of course, ENJOY IT! It will be delicious no matter what!
- 2 bananas
- 1 cup of dark brown sugar
- 1/2 cup of rum
- 2 scoops of vanilla ice cream
- 1/2 cup of unsalted butter
In a skillet, add butter, bananas and brown sugar. Allow all the ingredients to caramelize about 10 minutes on medium to low heat. Add rum. Flambe ( please be careful not to catch your hair on fire!) lol. The purpose of the flambe is to give the bananas a nice flavor, and of course the fire burns off the alcohol, but keeps the flavor. As soon as it caramelizes, serve over vanilla ice cream and enjoy!
