Alton Brown's Banana's Foster
A Quick Dessert You Have to Try
This quick dessert only takes a few minutes to make. Serve it over your favorite ice cream.
Melt the butter in a 10-inch heavy skillet, over low heat. Add brown sugar, allspice and nutmeg and stir until sugar dissolves. Add banana liqueur and bring sauce to simmer.
Add the bananas and cook for 1 minute on each side, carefully spooning sauce over bananas as they are cooking. Remove bananas from pan to a serving dish.
Return sauce to a simmer and carefully add the bourbon. If the sauce is very hot, the alcohol will flame on its own. If not, using a stick lighter, carefully ignite the sauce and continue cooking until flame dies out. Approximately 1 to 2 minutes. If sauce is too thin cook for 1 to 2 minutes until it is syrupy in consistency. Add orange zest and stir to combine. Immediately, spoon the sauce over bananas and serve.
Serve with waffles, crepes, or ice cream.
