This dessert is so delicious and spectacular that you may want to have more than one serving. We
consider this to be one of the most romantic dinner ideas, so call everyone into the kitchen for the
display of fireworks!
Helpful Hint: make this at least once before doing it for a crowd. It can take a bit
of finesse to get the flame to ignite.
- 4 bananas
- 2 tablespoons cinnamon
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 4 tablespoons butter
- 2 jiggers (1/4 cup) Spiced Rum
- Vanilla Ice cream
Combine cinnamon and sugar thoroughly. Peel and cut the bananas in half and again lengthwise. Sprinkle
the bananas generously with the sugar mixture.
On a gas stove, put the flame on medium. Melt the butter in a skillet (cast iron works well) and place
the bananas in skillet.
When the sugar on the bananas begins to caramelize (sugar melts and just begins to
turn brown), flip the bananas and allow the other side to caramelize.
Pour the rum into the
skillet. Tip the pan slightly sideways to allow the flame from the stove to catch the rum. A burst of
flame will appear and quickly burn off.
flame dies off serve the bananas immediately over bread pudding or ice cream.
Return to Bananas Foster.
