I had Bananas Foster a few years ago when a friend brought it to a party. I couldn’t believe how good it was but then again, I should have. I love bananas. And the best part, it’s so easy to make!
1/4 cup butter
2/3 cup dark brown sugar
3 1/2 tablespoons rum
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
3 bananas, peeled and sliced lengthwise and crosswise
1/4 cup coarsely chopped walnuts
1 pint vanilla ice cream
In a large, deep skillet over medium heat, melt butter. Stir in sugar, rum, vanilla and cinnamon. When mixture begins to bubble, place bananas and walnuts in pan. Cook until bananas are hot, 1 to 2 minutes. Serve at once over vanilla ice cream.

I don’t think I’ve had these either… Nice 🙂
They are decadent.
Ooh bananas are a luxury item at the moment due to the floods. 12 Aussie dollars per kilo. A work colleague gave me one the other day as a gift, and I took it home and shared it with the kids.
That recipe looks delish. I wonder if muscat would be a good substitute for rum?
Wow, Narelle, that is unbelievable but I understand. When we had the blackouts in ’04, I think, a sandwich was $11 at the deli near our office! Scarcity drives prices up.
That was very nice of you to share it with your children.
Muscat might be a nice substitute.
