How to make it

  • Melt butter in a 10-inch heavy skillet over moderately high heat until foam subsides, then sauté banana, cut sides down, shaking skillet, 1 minute.
  • Remove skillet from heat (away from flame) and sprinkle brown sugar around banana, then pour rum around banana. Return skillet to heat and continue to sauté, shaking skillet occasionally, until sugar begins to melt, about 30 seconds.
  • Add water, nutmeg, cinnamon, and a pinch of salt and cook over moderate heat, shaking skillet occasionally, until sauce is slightly thickened, 1 to 2 minutes.
  • Serve banana hot, sprinkled with nuts.

    The ice cream makes this dish. This is a closevariation of the famous Bananas Foster recipe created by the Brennan family of New Orleans (Commanders Palace, Brennans, etc). Breakfast at Brennans would not be Breakfast at Brennans without this famous dish prepared tableside. They serve so many, the dining rooms sometimes seem on fire and the smell is fantastic. I posted the original Brennans recipe several weeks ago. Great stuff.

    There are a couple of us from the Canton area listed and I'm toying with the idea of a dinner party. Life is a bit hectic right now, but maybe in the near future?

    Thanks for the comment on the rum bananas! It's one of those recipes that tastes like you've done something extravagant. I hope you enjoy it!

    Hi!
    Thanks so much for the buddy invite. Until now I had not seen anyone else from Canton. Your recipe for the Carmalized Bananas look amazing! I cannot wait to try this. In fact the bananas on my counter are ready to mingle with that yummy sounding rum sauce! :)
