Bananas Foster


  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 2/3 cup dark brown sugar
  • 3 tbsp. rum (dark or light)
  • 1 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 3 bananas, halved and cut into fourths
  • 1 pint vanilla ice cream

In a large, deep skillet over medium heat, melt butter.  Stir in sugar, rum, vanilla extract and cinnamon. As soon as the mixture begins to bubble, add the banana pieces.  Stir until the bananas are coated and let cook for 1-2 minutes or until heated through. Serve over ice cream.
