Bananas Foster

Bananas Foster is a traditional New Orleans dessert. Created by Paul Blangé at Brennan’s Restaurant in 1951, it is still served in many fine restaurants around the world. Some recipes call for rum, but there is no “Rum Street” in New Orleans to my knowledge, so use bourbon.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 3-4 bananas, peeled and cut into coins
  • 3 teaspoons fresh ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans
  • 1/2 cup bourbon (Makers Mark recommended)
  • 1/4 cup banana liqueur (Banana 99 recommended)
  • 1/2 gallon Butter Pecan ice cream
