bananas foster

Do you like bananas? Do you like brown sugar? How about rum? Fire? Whelp if you like at least a few of these, you've just found yourself a show-stopping dessert to make tonight.

Ingredients (for 6 portions):
3 bananas
8 tbs butter
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup dark rum of choice
1 scoop of vanilla bean or french vanilla ice cream for serving

1. Melt butter over medium heat in a large skillet.  

2. Whisk in brown sugar.

3. Halve bananas lengthwise and place flat-side-down. Cover bananas with butter-sugar mixture with a spoon. Swirl around to mix for 3 minutes.
4. Add rum, and if using a gas stove, tip ever-so-slightly to catch on fire (turn your hood on). If using electric, light with a lighter (remember your hood please!). Remove from heat and let the flames die down.

5. At this point, the bananas should be soft & caramelized. 

6. Serve over ice cream & enjoy your fun, tasty, impressive dessert.
