Bananas Foster

Think Bananas Foster is something you can only get in a fancy restaurant, served table-side? Think again.
Bananas Foster is simply bananas cooked for a few minutes in a buttery rum sauce, making this a great impromptu dessert you can throw together and feel fancy. Add walnuts or pecans if you like.

What to buy (serves 3-4):

  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup dark brown sugar
  • 4 tablespoons rum
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 3 bananas, peeled and sliced
  • vanilla ice cream
What to do:
  • in a skillet over medium heat, melt butter
  • stir in sugar, rum, vanilla and cinnamon
  • when it begins to bubble, place bananas in pan
  • cook until bananas are hot, 1-2 minutes or longer depending on how “charred” you like them
  • serve over vanilla ice cream

    Hi! I know this is kinda off topic but I’d figured I’d ask.
    Would you be interested in trading links or maybe guest writing
    a blog post or vice-versa? My site discusses a lot of the same subjects as
    yours and I believe we could greatly benefit from each other.
    If you might be interested feel free to shoot me an email.
    I look forward to hearing from you! Great blog by
    the way!
