Serves Tool

Serves To:USMetric
4   bananas cut length wise
1/2 Teaspoon(t)  cinnamon
1/4 Cup(c)  banana liquer
1/4 Cup(c)  dark rum
1 Cup(c)  brown sugar
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.
