Arlene's Bananas Foster

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by Penny Stettinius

This was the perfect end to a perfect meal with great friends. Sweet and cold and creamy. The original recipe comes from Chef Nathaniel Burton who was a Master Chef in New Orleans. Serve over the best vanilla ice cream you can find.

I made the recipe for 2 servings (me and DH). I used only 1 ounce of banana liqueur. This was great on vanilla ice cream. Thanks Trinkets :) Made for PRMR tag game
