Wow, wow, wow. This was one tasty dessert. Thank you for sharing a new way to serve ripe bananas. We will be enjoying this wonderful dessert often. I love the blend of lime, brown sugar, butter and rum, so very yummy, even before I added the warm banana and mango sherbet. I made one serving as written and one serving without alcohol for the dh. Both versions were terrific. I didn't have any vanilla ice cream left, so I used Mango Sherbet, it worked beautifully in this treat.
Eaten with enormous greed and total abandon.......lurking at the bottom of the garden, so the neighbours would not gatecrash my dessert party! I used golden caster sugar, which is superfine sugar to you, I believe. I served this with mango sorbet and a few plastic palm trees with a paper monkey - it HAS to be done........and another reason I had to hide from the neighbours. My rum syrup went a bit hard and sticky, like toffee, but it was wonderful......I think I got carried away with heating it in the pan - possibly whilst swigging out of the rum bottle. Made for the Whiners and Cheesers and ZWT5, merci encore CG. PS: I used Woods Navy Rum, sorry - but t'was all I had. FT:-)
