Baked Bananas With Strawberry Flambe

Total Time

This makes its own sauce as it bakes and will impress your guests. A wonderful and very simple treat. If you want to keep it simple, omit the flambe step. From the Best of the Best from Arkansas.

Made for the *Gimme 5* game, this truly is a simple & wonderful treat. I tagged it because it sounded so good & delayed making it because it scared me, but I was determined to get over my fear of my 1st flambe + capture the moment on film. I managed the former, but failed w/the latter as I tried to keep my wits about me & be ready to fight a flash-fire. I made a 2-banana version & split it into 2 servings. The prep is make-ahead easy & the result ideal for a spec romantic occasion or guests you want to impress. All you really do is a quick assembly & pop it in the oven based on when you want to serve dessert. A lovely recipe, Nimz, & now a *Zaar Star* too. Thx for sharing it w/us. :-)

Excellent! I didn't made any changes as the recipe is so good! I did make the flambe step and my guests were really impressed. Of course, I owe that to NimrodCook that!
