Diana Foster Bananas

This is such a classic dessert,  you can’t make a mistake.


  • 2 tbsp. unsalted butter
  • 4 tbsp. brown sugar
  • 2 ripe bananas
  • 1/4 tsp. cinnamon
  • 3-4 oz. rum (try cinnamon vodka for a variation)
  • Ice cream

Preparation: In a fry pan, melt the butter and brown sugar and stir until the sugar has dissolved. Add the cinnamon. Cut the bananas in half lengthways and in half again across the middle.

Place two halves of the banana in each dessert bowl. Go back to the sauce and carefully add the rum stirring well to combine and cook off the alcohol.   This will flame up so be very careful when doing this step

. Drizzle the sauce over the bananas. Add a scoop of premium vanilla ice cream. (Banana ice cream if you can find it). Seconds, anyone?

yummy and goes really well with the rest of the dinner flavours.
