- 4 medium-size ripe bananas
- 1/2 cup butter
- 1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
- 1/4 cup banana liqueur
- 1/2 cup rum
- Vanilla ice cream
How to Make It
Cut bananas in half crosswise; cut each half in half lengthwise. Melt butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat; add brown sugar, and cook, stirring constantly, 2 minutes.
Add bananas to skillet, and remove from heat. Stir in liqueur and rum, and carefully ignite the fumes just above mixture with a long match or long multipurpose lighter. Let flames die down.
Return skillet to heat, and cook 3 to 4 minutes or until bananas are soft and curl slightly. Remove from heat. Serve banana mixture immediately over vanilla ice cream.
