Recipe is from my favorite chef Alton Brown. I also happen to love bananas foster, so two great things in one.
- 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
- 1⁄4 cup dark brown sugar
- 1⁄4 teaspoon ground allspice
- 1⁄2 teaspoon freshly ground nutmeg
- 1 tablespoon banana liqueur
- 2 under ripe bananas, sliced in half lengthwise
- 1⁄4 cup dark rum
- Melt butter in a 10-inch heavy skillet over low heat.
- Add brown sugar, allspice and nutmeg and stir until sugar dissolves.
- Add banana liqueur and bring sauce to simmer.
- Add bananas and cook for 1 minute on each side, carefully spooning sauce over bananas as they are cooking.
- Remove bananas from pan to a serving dish.
- Bring sauce to a simmer and carefully add the rum.
- If the sauce is very hot, the alcohol will flame on its own.
- If not, using stick flame, carefully ignite and continue cooking until flame dies out, approximately 1 to 2 minutes.
- If sauce is too thin, cook for 1 to 2 minutes until it is syrupy in consistency.
- Immediately spoon the sauce over bananas and serve.
- Serve with waffles, crepes, or ice cream.
