Grilled Bananas Foster Adapted from Brennan’s Restaurant
If you’re looking for a dessert that’ll wow dinner party guests, look no further. Not only is bananas foster a decadent end to a meal, but it’s also quite the spectacle to behold – invite guests into the kitchen to watch you flambé the rum sauce for the most impressive results. And don’t worry, it’s easier (and safer) to do than you might think!
2 firm bananas, peeled, cut lengthwise, then halved
2 tablespoons butter, melted
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/3 cup dark rum
1 pint vanilla ice cream
If you’ve never tried it, then now’s your chance. To start, mix butter, brown sugar, cinnamon, a dash of salt, and a dash of nutmeg into a saucepan. Now melt the ingredients down.
Grab three bananas and chop them up into bite-size pieces before throwing them in with the mixture.
Here comes the fun part. Add a bit of rum to the mixture and promptly light it on fire. Let the alcohol burn off and beware of the flame.
Now it’s time to plate the dessert. Add a bit of ice cream on top if you so choose.
Pretty simple, right? Bon appétit! A video version of the recipe is featured below.
