Bananas Foster - Dads That Cook

By Jason Glover

An easy, yet impressive, dessert that uses a few simple ingredients and takes only minutes to make! This Bananas Foster recipe is so deliciously rich you'll want to make it again and again. The only skill required: Don't set yourself on fire.

Yields2 Servings
Prep Time5 minsCook Time10 minsTotal Time15 mins

TOOLS
 10" non-stick skillet
 Spatula
 Grill Lighter
INGREDIENTS
 1 banana
 1 tsp cinnamon
 3 tbsp unsalted butter
  cup dark brown sugar
 ¼ cup banana liqueur
 ¼ cup dark rum
 Vanilla ice cream, for serving

SLICE THE BANANA
1

Slice the banana on the bias (slight angle) into about 1/2" pieces. (This will prevent the bananas from turning to mush during the cooking process.)

MAKE THE BASIC SAUCE
2

Melt the butter in a non-stick skillet over medium heat.

3

When butter starts to melt, add the brown sugar.

4

Stir regularly with a spatula to prevent burning.

5

When the mixture starts to get foamy, reduce the heat a bit.

6

Add the cinnamon and stir to incorporate.

7

Add the banana liqueur. Be sure to swirl the pan and stir with your spatula to keep the contents moving. (The mixture will bubble up pretty actively initially then calm down when the sauce thickens.)

FINISH THE GOOEY GOODNESS
8

Remove the pan from the heat (IMPORTANT) and pour in the rum.

9

Return the pan to the heat, still stirring.

10

Using the grill lighter, CAREFULLY ignite the contents in the pan.

11

Still swirling the pan, add in the bananas. (The flames will stop once the alcohol burns off.)

PLATE & ENJOY
12

Scoop vanilla ice cream onto plates or in bowls.

13

Spoon the warm banana mixture equally over the ice cream.

14

15. Serve & enjoy!

A very easy recipe. A careful beginner can make it. We rated it intermediate for safety reasons (because of the flambé step in the process).
