Browned Butter Bananas with Orange-Brandy Sauce

Photo: Becky Luigart-Stayner; Styling: Cindy Barr

Browned butter gives the dessert a rich, caramelized, almost nutty flavor. Choose firm bananas with no spots; they'll hold up better when cooked.

Yield: 4 servings (serving size: 4 banana pieces, 1 tablespoon sauce, and 1/2 cup ice cream)
