How to make it

  • Smear 2 tablespoons of the butter in the baking dish. Peel the bananas and arrange in the dish; pour on the wine or cider, honey, and lemon juice. Sprinkle with cinnamon and dot with remaining butter. (May be prepared in advance)
  • Baking
  • The bananas with take about 15 minutes in the middle of a preheated 400 degree oven, or 20-25 minutes in a 375 degree oven. Baste about every 5 minutes with the liquid in the dish until bananas are soft and liquid is syrupy. You may bake ahead, and reheat; you may serve them plain or flambeed.
  • To flame the bananas
  • 1 tb granulated sugar
  • 1/3 to 1/2 cup cognac
  • Be sure bananas are bubbling hot. Sprinkle on the tablespoon of granulated sugar, then pour the cognac around them ( warm the cognac in a pan if you are not using a chaffing pan). Averting your face, ignite the cognac with a lighted match and spoon it over the bananas until the flames die down. Serve on hot plates.

    I've always liked this dish in the restaurants, now I can make it myself! The fire part intimidates me a little bit, but maybe I can get over it.
