Bananas, butter, sugar, dark rum, vanilla ice-cream.
Anything else is overkill.

Absolutely agree. Bananas Foster can stand on those 5 ingredients. Bonus; you can make it in less than 10 minutes and it looks impressive while doing it.

The ONLY onther thing I've done is use a pinch of cinnamon or nutmeg. A friend uses banana liqueur which I remember being good.
It turned out great! I ended up using the Mrs. VinoMe recipe, cutting back on the banana liquor (because I was a bit short), and it was a big hit. Honestly, as long as the base ingredients are there, there's enough caramelization and sufficient flame, you can "wing it" with ingredients and it'll still be delicious. I ended up using Ritter's Frozen Custard (Hoosier specialty) in the bowls, and it was superb.
Bananas Foster

2 tablespoons brown sugar
1/2 ounce Banana liquer (optional)
1 tablespoon butter
1 ripe banana , sliced lengthwiseh of cinnamon
1 ounce of white rum
1 scoop of vanilla ice cream

Melt sugar and butter in flat chafing dish or on stove top. Add bana and saute' until tender. Sprinkle with cinnamon. Pour liquer and rum over flame. Baste with warm liquid until flame burns out. Serve immediately over ice cream. Serves 1. You can double or triple, etc this recipe. Also if you want, add a piece of homemade cake or pund cake as your base, then ice cream then topping!

Anybody have a good recipe? Good flambé, good flavor, the whole deal.

Thx in advance,
Just what the recipe stated. I saved one of my southern cookbooks from the storm. I think I used dark rum. Don't think it matters. And I did not use the banana liquor. It was tasty.

I notice you use white rum, instead of dark. You like the flavor of it better? Or is there a difference in the way it burns down?
