Bananas Foster

I LOVE Bananas Foster! It’s super easy to make and an impressive dessert. I even make Bananas Foster French Toast, which is SO good (I’ll share that recipe another day). Make this for company and everyone will be so impressed, and if you flambé it in front of them they’ll be even more wowed.

Total Time: 7 Minutes
Servings: 4


  • 1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup banana liqueur
  • 4 slightly green bananas (not quite ripe yet), cut in half lengthwise, then halved
  • 1/4 cup dark rum
  • 4 scoops vanilla ice cream


  1. In a skillet combine the butter, sugar and cinnamon (Make sure it's heat resistant as you'll be flambeing this, there will be fire in the pan. I like to use a cast iron skillet). Place the pan over low heat and cook, stirring, until the sugar dissolves.

  2. Stir in the banana liqueur, then place the bananas in the pan in a single layer.

  3. When the bananas begin to brown, carefully add the rum. Cook the sauce until the rum is hot, then tip the pan slightly to ignite the rum. When the flames stop, use a slotted spatula to lift the bananas out of the pan and place 4 pieces onto 4 plates or shallow bowls. Top with vanilla ice cream, and spoon remaining sauce in the pan over the top of the ice cream. Serve immediately.
