Bananas Foster

If you could have something named after you what would it be? a street? a tree? a town? I would like a dessert to bare my name, I am not sure which yet and I am opened to suggestions but I do envy lucky Mr Foster whose mate Chef Paul created this scrumptious recipe and named it after him.

He went to some trouble to recreate it, the gathering of the ingredients was the biggest hurdle, when the banana liqueur was acquired the bananas had disappeared, when they had reappeared the rum had gone. Eventually he got there and the eating was a blissful moment.


¼ cup (½ stick) butter
1 cup brown sugar
½ teaspoon cinnamon
¼ cup banana liqueur
4 bananas, cut in half
lengthwise, then halved
¼ cup dark rum
4 scoops vanilla ice cream

Combine the butter, sugar, and cinnamon in a flambé pan or skillet.

Place the pan over low heat either on an alcohol burner or on top of the stove, and cook, stirring, until the sugar dissolves.

Stir in the banana liqueur, then place the bananas in the pan. When the banana sections soften and begin to brown, carefully add the rum.

Continue to cook the sauce until the rum is hot, then tip the pan slightly to ignite the rum. When the flames subside,

Lift the bananas out of the pan and place four pieces over each portion of ice cream. Generously spoon warm sauce over the top of the ice cream and serve immediately.

What an idea! Bananas, cinnamon, rum, and ice cream; sounds like a foolproof pleaser. :)
