Bananas Foster is special by the flavor produced when the dark rum, banana’s and brown sugar combine in an exquisite way. It is unforgettable and you can’t say that about every dessert It was created by Brennan’s restaurant in New Orleans in 1951

I wanted to make the filling it at least close to the original Brennan’s version, this I found at The Chew

Ingredients:

1/4 cup (1/2 stick) Butter
1 / 2 cup Brown Sugar
1/2 teaspoon Cinnamon
2 tablespoons Banana Liqueur
2 Bananas (cut in half lengthwise; then halved)
1/4 cup Dark Rum
2 scoops Vanilla Ice Cream

My Additions:

1. Combine the butter, sugar, and cinnamon in a flambé pan or skillet. Place the pan over low heat either on an alcohol burner or on top of the stove, and cook, stirring, until the sugar dissolves.

2. Stir in this banana liqueur, then place the bananas in the pan. When the banana sections soften and begin to brown, carefully add the rum. Continue to cook the sauce until the rum is hot, then tip the pan slightly to ignite the rum.

3. When the flames subside, lift the bananas out of the pan and place four pieces over each portion of ice cream. Generously spoon warm sauce over the top of the ice cream and serve immediately.
