Description

A quick and easy dessert for family or having guests over.

Ingredients

  • 1 stick Butter (salted)
  • 1 cup Dark Brown Sugar
  • ½ cups Dark Rum
  • 2 whole Ripe But Firm Bananas
  • 1 pint Favorite Vanilla Ice Cream

Preparation

Place a medium to large skillet on medium heat, melt butter until foaming. Sprinkle in dark brown sugar (should be one packed cup), stir until all the sugar is wet and begins to bubble.

Meanwhile, peel the bananas; cut in half lengthwise and again in half crosswise, so each banana is quartered.

When the brown sugar mixture is bubbling slowly, pour in the rum (see note below), and stir until smooth. Toss cut bananas in, and sautee for a few minutes, until they begin to get tender.

Dish up the ice cream into four bowls, spoon over bananas and some sauce. You may have sauce leftover. Pour it into a jar and refrigerate it, if you can stand it.

This sauce is dangerous, you will hear its siren call from the fridge if you have some leftover and once you make it, you will consider doing it again when a block of butter is staring at you and the bananas on the counter are beginning to get freckles. You’ve been warned.

Note: Be careful pouring rum near a flame, as it is highly flammable.

The was a fantastic base! I ended up almost doubling it and adding more cinnamon, but was wonderful and rich. I loved it, so did my guests!
