Guests are always impressed when I ignite the rum in this delicious dessert. Use perfectly ripe bananas for best results. —Mary Lou Wayman, Salt Lake City, Utah

Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup butter, cubed
  • 3/4 cup packed dark brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 3 medium bananas
  • 2 tablespoons creme de cacao or banana liqueur
  • 1/4 cup dark rum
  • 2 cups vanilla ice cream

Directions

In a large skillet or flambé pan, melt butter over medium-low heat. Stir in brown sugar and cinnamon until combined. Cut each banana lengthwise and then widthwise into quarters; add to butter mixture. Cook, stirring gently, for 3-5 minutes or until glazed and slightly softened. Stir in creme de cacao; heat through.
In a small saucepan, heat rum over low heat until vapors form on surface. Carefully ignite rum and slowly pour over bananas, coating evenly.
Leaving skillet or pan on the cooking surface, gently shake pan back and forth until flames are completely extinguished.
Spoon ice cream into fluted glasses; top with bananas and sauce. Serve immediately. Yield: 4 servings.
Editor's Note: Keep liquor bottles and other flammables at a safe distance when preparing this dessert. We do not recommend using a nonstick skillet.
