Bananas Foster – America’s Favorite Flaming Dessert

Posted on

When you think show-stopping, special occasion desserts, you usually don’t think “simple and fast,” but that’s the case with Bananas Foster. This delicious New Orleans classic only has a few ingredients, and takes just minutes to make. Except for the folks that burn their houses down, everybody loves this recipe.

Of course, in New Orleans they prepare this tableside, which can be a challenge at home, so you’ll have to settle for turning down the lights, and gathering all your guests around the stove to watch the show. I hope you give this great American desert to try soon. Enjoy!
Ingredients for two portions:
2 bananas, peeled, cut in four pieces each
3 tablespoons unsalted butter
3 tablespoons packed brown sugar
1 ounce Banana liqueur (mine was 17% alcohol)
2 ounces rum
2 pinches cinnamon
2 scoops vanilla ice cream
