Bananas Foster


  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 2/3 cup dark brown sugar
  • 3 1/2 tablespoons rum (dark rum is best)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 3 bananas, peeled and sliced lengthwise and crosswise
  • 1/4 cup coarsely chopped walnuts
  • 1 pint vanilla bean (vanilla is okay too) ice cream


  1. Melt the butter in a large, deep skillet over medium heat. Once melted, stir in the sugar, rum, vanilla and cinnamon. When the mixture begins to bubble, place the bananas and walnuts in pan and cook until bananas are hot, about 1 to 2 minutes. Serve at once over vanilla bean ice cream. Yum!
