Dessert to go~

This is a great 'dessert to go'.
I had offered to bring dessert; so I took this when we went to a friends the other night. It is so simple to pack it up... all the dry ingredients in a plastic tub, with the butter on top. Grab some bananas, a pint of ice cream and a mini of rum.

Bananas Foster
¼ cup butter
1 cup brown sugar
½ teaspoon cinnamon
1 bay leaf
4 bananas
1 mini of rum
1 pint vanilla ice cream

When it is time for dessert~ borrow the kitchen for 10 minutes.

Melt butter, cinnamon and sugar in a skillet. Add bay leaf. Bring to a simmer and allow to caramelize over 5 minutes. Peel the bananas and slice them in half. Place them in the melted butter and heat through. Pour the rum into the pan. Flambe to burn off the alcohol or simmer for a couple of minutes. Scoop vanilla ice cream into 4 bowls. Spoon hot bananas and sauce over the ice cream.
Sorry~ I forgot to get picture. We were to busy eating!

Y'all enjoy!

We love bananas at my house, so I might get brave and try this recipe.

Thank you so much for your sweet words. They mean so much to me.

This sounds so good. And easy enough that even I can make it (she said right before she "flambeed" the house down to a pile of cinders). lol
