DIRECTIONS

  • Melt the butter in a heavy-bottomed 12-inch skillet over medium heat.
  • Add the brown sugar, cinnamon stick, and lemon zest; stir to dissolve the sugar, about 1 minute.
  • (If the heat is too high, the butter and sugar will separate instead of combining to form a sauce).
  • Add the bananas and spoon some sauce over each piece.
  • Cook until the bananas are glossy and golden on the bottom, about 1 1/2 minutes.
  • Turn the bananas and continue cooking until they are very soft but not mushy or falling apart, about 1 1/2 more minutes.
  • Remove the skillet from the heat.
  • Add the rum and wait until the rum has warmed slightly, about 5 seconds.
  • Wave a lit match over the pan until the rum ignites, shaking the pan to distribute the flame over the entire pan.
  • When the flames subside (this will take 15 to 30 seconds), divide the bananas and sauce among the four bowls of ice cream and serve.
