A delicious twist to the traditional version of Bananas Foster. It's always a hit for dinner parties and there's never a drop left. Best served over vanilla ice cream or pudding. If traditional version of Bananas Foster is preferred, just omit the Amaretto & replace with 1 oz. dark rum & 1 oz. banana liquor. This can be flambe'd at the end when adding the alcohol, however - this is only recommended for the experienced cook.


  1. Melt butter in pan then add bananas. Stir over medium high heat until blended.
  2. Stir in brown sugar, cinnamon, vanilla, and salt and continue to cook, stirring constantly.
  3. Add Amaretto, reduce heat, and stir until mixed through then remove from heat.
  4. Serve immediately over vanilla ice cream or vanilla pudding.

Tasty and easy! I used maple syrup instead of brown sugar and served with toasted coconut ice cream.
