Recipe by CarolAnn

I believe this is an old Helen Corbitt recipe. It is an excellent, easy dessert and complements so many things.

I put this on top of Jessica C's Banana's Foster Cheesecake and it was just the perfect finish. Would be great on ice cream over english muffins or pancakes, etc. Yummy.

  4. When butter is bubbly, add the bananas.
  5. Holding the pan by the handle, toss the bananas every 10 seconds or so for 2-3 minutes until tender.
