Ingredients

  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 3/4 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • Pinch ground nutmeg
  • 4 ripe bananas, peeled and cut lengthwise into halves
  • 1/4 cup banana-flavored liqueur
  • 1/2 cup dark rum
  • 1 pint vanilla ice cream

Directions

Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the brown sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg, and cook, stirring, until the sugar dissolves, about 2 minutes. Add the bananas and banana liqueur and cook on both sides until the bananas start to soften and brown, about 3 minutes. Carefully add the rum and shake the pan back and forth to warm the rum and flame the pan. Cook's Note: Or, off the heat, carefully ignite the pan with a match.

Shake the pan back and forth, basting the bananas with the sauce, until the flame dies.

Divide the ice cream among 4 dessert plates. Gently lift the bananas from the pan and place 2 halves on the ice cream. Spoon the sauce over the ice cream and serve immediately.
