Why I Love This Recipe

Bananas sliced in a warm cinnamon and caramel sauce with rum set ablaze. Serve over ice cream!

Recipe from Brennan's in New Orleans, which invented this highly theatrical (and tasty) dessert.


Ingredients You'll Need

2 Tablespoons butter
3 Tablespoons brown sugar
1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 banana
1 Tablespoon lemon juice
1/4 cup rum or to taste
2 Tablespoons banana liqueur


Directions

In a small skillet over medium heat, melt butter. Stir in sugar and cinnamon and heat until bubbly. Peel and quarter the banana. Place banana pieces and lemon juice in skillet and cook 3 to 4 minutes more, basting with syrup.


In a long-handled pan, heat rum and banana liqueur over medium heat until just warm. Ignite the alcohol and pour carefully over the banana slices. Remove the banana pan from the heat and continue to baste the banana slices with their sauce until the flames die down. Serve at once. I really like it over a scoop of vanilla ice cream, but good just by it's self.
