dark brown sugar
3 1/2 tablespoons
1 1/2 teaspoons
bananas, peeled and sliced lengthwise and crosswise
coarsely chopped walnuts
vanilla ice cream
Awesome!!!....and so simple. Be sure to only "warm" the bananas in the sauce, otherwise bananas wil be too mushy.
Made this recipe for myself and my parents...I would recommend twice the amount of walnuts and to make sure the sugar actually dissolves, otherwise instead of a caramel-type sauce, it's grainy. It's a very sweet recipe, reducing the amount of sugar may help as well. Using bananas that aren't fully ripe adds a touch of acidity that was very welcome in this sugary dish.
Incredible! I made this for friends and they raved about it! One friend said this was the best dessert she has had in her life! I used rum extract in place of rum. I looked up the substitution on the web and found out 1 Tbsp. Rum = 1 tsp. rum extract plus 2 tsp. water. I used these measurements and it tasted perfect!
I've made this twice now, first time used rum flavoring and 2nd time used Meyer's Dark Rum. I thought it was a little too liquid using 3-1/2 T of rum, but my family loved it just as it was. It served our family of 3 generously. The flavor is rich and addictive.
Made this dessert for 36 people and got rave reviews. Instead of using rum, used rum extract
(1/8 tsp. with enough water to make 1 tablespoon).
Scooped ice cream into 36 plastic tumblers, put them on a cookie sheet and put them back in the freezer early in the day. Served the bananas fosster in a chafing dish and let my guests help themselves. Could not have been easier!
Good and impressive! I thought you were supposed to light the rum on fire though??? This way the alchol burns off and even the kids can eat this dessert :)
This was very tasty. I skipped the rum and walnuts and only had light brown sugar. I also combined it with another dessert since some people (like my husband) aren't big on bananas. It's called crunchy ice cream and isn't on this website. You need 4 scoops of vanilla ice cream, honey, cinnamon sugar and about 2 cups of crushed corn flakes. Drizzle honey and sprinkle cinnamon sugar over each scoop. Then cover each scoop with the corn flakes. Place bananas foster around the ice cream and enjoy!.. I know we do!!!
I've been using this recipe for about 8 months as a nice dessert after dinner. All of my guests absolutely love this! Great recipe! As an extra I add 5ml of banana liquer, it really brings out the rum and bananas.
