- Serves 4
- 4 tablespoons butter
- ¾ cup light brown sugar, packed
- ½ teaspoon cinnamon
- ¼ teaspoon nutmeg
- 4 bananas (ripe), cut lengthwise into halves
- ½ cup dark rum
- 1 pint vanilla ice cream
Melt the butter over medium heat. Add the brown sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg and cook, while stirring, until the sugar dissolves, about 2 minutes. Add bananas and cook on both sides until the bananas start to soften, about 3 minutes.
Carefully add the rum (away from flame) and shake pan back and forth to warm the rum and flame the pan, or take a match and flame away from heat. Shake the pan back and forth until the flame dies.
Serve over vanilla ice cream and serve immediately.
