  • 1/2 cup pecans
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, cut into pieces
  • 1 cup dark brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 6 bananas, peeled and sliced on the diagonal
  • 1/4 cup dark rum
  • 2 pints vanilla ice cream


  1. Heat oven to 375° F. Spread the pecans on a rimmed baking sheet and toast, tossing occasionally, until fragrant, 5 to 6 minutes; roughly chop.

    Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the sugar and cinnamon and cook, whisking occasionally, until smooth, 4 to 5 minutes.

    Gently stir in the bananas. Remove from heat and add the rum. Using a match, carefully ignite the mixture and wait until the flame goes out. Stir in the pecans.

    Serve the bananas and sauce over the ice cream.
