Ingredients
  • 1⁄4 cup butter (1/2 stick)
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1⁄2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1⁄4 cup banana liqueur
  • 4 bananas, cut in half lengthwise, then halved
  • 1⁄4 cup dark rum
  • 4 scoops vanilla ice cream
Directions
  • 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, or ignite with a long match.
  • 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.
