Bananas Foster

In Desserts on July 12, 2011 at 3:27 am

10 minute recipe! Super easy and perfect for when you have extra dark rum left over…


2/3 cup brown sugar

1/4 cup butter
3 1/2 tablespoons rum (if you want fire, use over 80 proof – that’s 40% alcohol by volume)
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
A few bananas, sliced
1/4 cup coarsely chopped walnuts
Vanilla ice cream


Heat a pan and melt butter. Stir in sugar, rum, vanilla and cinnamon. When mixture begins to bubble, place bananas and walnuts in pan.

The rum may ignite spontaneously so don’t freak out. Also, if it does not, take a long match to it and light it yourself! That is if you’re a pyro or just want some good fun. Make sure to watch your eyebrows! Cook until bananas are hot, 1 to 2 minutes. Serve at once over vanilla ice cream.
