  • 2-4 Big scoops Vanilla ice cream Buy the good stuff.


  • Over low heat melt butter in your skillet.
  • Add in brown sugar and cinnamon, stirring continously, about 1-2 minutes.
  • Add in bananas and saute about 1-3 minutes until warm, softened and lightly browned.
  • Carefully add rum, continue cooking about 1 minute. I like to remove the pan from the burner when i add the rum, then put it back on the burner to continue.
  • Pour over ice cream and enjoy immediately.

 Flambé Bananas Foster Recipe–alcohol burns slow and not very hot. Use less rum if you are nervous about doing a Flambe.

  • Follow the above recipe until you add the rum, then remove pan from stove and ignite the rum with a long tapered lighter/match. Or, if you cook with a gas stove you can tilt the pan towards the stove flame to ignite the rum. Whichever method you choose keep a fire extinguisher and the pan lid handy in case you need to extinguish the flame.
  • Let the fire burn and go out, and then spoon the sauce over bananas and pour over ice cream. Enjoy immediately.
