DIRECTIONS

  • Melt butter in a 10-inch heavy skillet over low heat.
  • Add brown sugar, allspice and nutmeg and stir until sugar dissolves.
  • Add banana liqueur and bring sauce to simmer.
  • Add bananas and cook for 1 minute on each side, carefully spooning sauce over bananas as they are cooking.
  • Remove bananas from pan to a serving dish.
  • Bring sauce to a simmer and carefully add the rum.
  • If the sauce is very hot, the alcohol will flame on its own.
  • If not, using stick flame, carefully ignite and continue cooking until flame dies out, approximately 1 to 2 minutes.
  • If sauce is too thin, cook for 1 to 2 minutes until it is syrupy in consistency.
  • Immediately spoon the sauce over bananas and serve.
  • Serve with waffles, crepes, or ice cream.
