Brown Sugar Banana Sauce (For Ice Cream)

Total Time
Prep 5 mins
Cook 10 mins

A quick, tasty and simple sauce that will wow your guests! Recipe probably originated from TOH, but I tweaked it to fit our tastes. This is wonderful in the summertime when it is too hot to turn on the oven but you want something a little fancier than plain ice cream. PS - If I'm having a dinner party, I scoop the ice cream into dessert dishes the day before and keep in the freezer until needed.


  1. Over low heat, combine brown sugar, butter and milk until sugar is melted and not gritty.
  2. Add in vanilla, cinnamon, bananas. Cook for 1 min (or longer but we don't like the taste of cooked bananas.)
  3. Remove from heat and let cool slightly.
  4. Top individual servings of ice cream with sauce and sprinkle toasted pecans and coconut over top. Serve immediately.
