3 to 4 firm-ripe bananas (about 1 1/2 lb. total), peeled and cut into 1-inch-thick slices, or 1 1/2 pounds firm-ripe peaches, peeled, pitted, and sliced
1 pint vanilla ice cream
About 2 tablespoons banana- or orange-flavored liqueur
About 2 tablespoons dark rum
How to Make It
In a 10- to 12-inch frying pan over high heat, stir butter and brown sugar until bubbling vigorously. Add cinnamon, orange juice, and fruit; turn fruit often with a spatula until sauce is boiling again and fruit is hot, 1 to 3 minutes.
Scoop ice cream equally into four bowls. For the children, spoon fruit and sauce over ice cream. Then, for the adults, pour banana liqueur and rum over fruit in pan and ignite with a match (keep away from vents or flammable materials); shake pan until flame dies. Spoon fruit and sauce over ice cream.
