The making of dessert!

Or maybe I should entitle this, "Mom, don't look!"

The reason?

This requires cooking with liqueur..Not just a little, but a LOT of it! 

This is

Bananas Foster..

This is how you make it..


  • ¼ cup (½ stick) butter

  • 1 cup brown sugar

  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon

  • ¼ cup banana liqueur

  • 4 bananas, cut in half
    lengthwise, then halved

  • ¼ cup dark rum

  • 4 scoops vanilla ice cream

    Combine the butter, sugar, and cinnamon in a flambé pan or skillet. Place the pan over low heat either on an alcohol burner or on top of the stove, and cook, stirring, until the sugar dissolves. Stir in the banana liqueur, then place the bananas in the pan. When the banana sections soften Bananas Fosterand begin to brown, carefully add the rum. Continue to cook the sauce until the rum is hot, then tip the pan slightly to ignite the rum. When the flames subside, lift the bananas out of the pan and place four pieces over each portion of ice cream. Generously spoon warm sauce over the top of the ice cream and serve immediately.

    2. Hmmm, I'll have to take your word for it.
      But if I'm ever over your way you'll have to make it so I can taste test it.
