Bananas Foster

A while back, I posted a status on Facebook, asking my friends for suggestions on what desserts to make.  Bananas Foster was one of the ones that popped up, and I remember thinking, What is that?  Well, that’s actually the exact same thing my husband asked me as well when I said something about making it.  When I explained what it was, he said, “Oh wow, that sounds freaking awesome.  I love bananas.”  So, I decided to surprise him with Chicken Pot Awesome for dinner and this for dessert.

Since neither one of us has had this dessert before, we were both looking forward to trying it out…and for a good reason.  This was absolutely delicious, and easy, too!  Very tasty way to get fruit in your diet.  😉

Bananas Foster Recipe:

1/2 stick butter

2/3 cup brown sugar

3 tablespoons rum

1 teaspoon vanilla

1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

3 bananas, peeled and sliced lengthwise and crosswise

1/4 cup coarsely chopped walnuts (optional)

1 pint vanilla ice cream

In a large, deep skillet over medium heat, melt butter.  Stir in sugar, rum, vanilla and cinnamon.  When mixture begins to bubble, place bananas and walnuts in pan.  Cook until bananas are hot, 1 to 2 minutes.  Serve immediately with vanilla ice cream.
