Bananas Foster or Bananas Flambe


My 11 years old cousin loves this dish! Besides the fact that he has a sweet tooth – he is mesmerized with fire. 


Do any kids in your family love this dish as well? 


Any secret tips you want to share to make this dish even more mouthwatering?





4 bananas sliced lengthwise then sliced in half or sliced into1/4-inch coins

1/4 cup banana liqueur

1/4 cup butter

1 cup brown sugar

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

1/4 cup rum

4 scoops vanilla ice cream (1 scoop per bowl)





Heat a skillet over medium-low heat. Add the bananas, liqueur, butter, sugar, and cinnamon. Stir while it cooks and the bananas start to soften.


Lower the heat. Slowly add the rum and be carefully not to get burned. The rum will ignite. If it doesn’t happen automatically then carefully tip the pan so the flame from the stove touches the inside of the pan.


When the flame burns off the bananas are done. Add the bananas to each bowl with the ice cream.


Pour some of the liquid from the pan over the ice cream. Serve immediately.
