Tasty Treats: Banana Foster

June 30, 2017

The residents at The Commons at Brightmore had another amazing, tasty afternoon with Ryan, as he made the residents banana foster right before their eyes! He is always able to dazzle them with his skills and his charm! Thank you Ryan for all that you do and of course for all the tasty treats!
  • 1 stick salted butter
  • 1 cup packed dark brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 2 bananas
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts or pecans
  • 1/2 cup dark rum
  • Dash cinnamon
  • Vanilla Ice Cream, for serving
Directions Melt the butter in a heavy skillet over a medium-high heat. Add the brown sugar. Stir together and cook for a minute or two. Pour in the cream and stir it around to combine. Peel the bananas and slice them on the bias inside the peel. Drop the slices into the pan. Next, add the chopped nuts and stir them into the sauce. Then – and this is where you need to be a little careful – stir in the rum. Let it start to bubble, and then carefully use a long lighter to ignite it. (Be sure to have a lid handy in case you need to extinguish the flame.) Let the fire burn and go out (it’ll only take about 30 seconds or so), and then stir in the cinnamon at the end. You may also cook the mixture without flambéing it. Spoon it over a couple of scoops of vanilla ice cream and enjoy immediately.
