READY IN: 55mins




  • Preheat the oven to 350*F.
  • Butter and flour an 8 inch square dish and set aside.
  • Whisk together the spices, flour, baking powder and salt. Set aside.
  • Stir together the molasses, soda and hot water and set aside to cool to room temperature.
  • Cream together the butter and brown sugar until light and fluffy. Beat the egg into the creamed mixture.
  • Add the cooled molasses mixture, then the dry ingredients, mixing only until blended. Pour into the prepared pan and bake in the oven until tests done, 30 to 40 minutes.
  • In the meantime do the banana sauce. In a medium saute pan, combine the butter, cream, brown sugar, cinnamon and rum. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat and cook for several minutes longer, stirring constantly until the sauce thickens slightly, about 2 minutes longer. Gently stir in the bananas and heat until heated through.
  • To serve, cut the gingerbread into rectangles and place on dessert plates. Top each portion with some of the banana sauce and then a dollop of freshly whipped cream.
