My first Bananas Foster

Posted by Craig Kanalley on 11/10/2008
New place, (occasionally) new food. Tonight I had my first ever "Bananas Foster." They had the dessert at my dining hall this evening.

Had never even heard of this dish before tonight!

It's basically lots of cinnamon thrown together with fried banana slices and vanilla ice cream! Sooo good. What a treat.

Wikipedia describes it as: "Bananas Foster is a dessert made from bananas and vanilla ice cream, with the sauce made from butter, brown sugar, cinnamon, dark rum, and banana liqueur. The butter, sugar and bananas are cooked, and then the alcohol is added and ignited. The bananas and sauce are then served over the ice cream. Preparation of the dish is often made into a tableside performance as a flambé."

No alcohol in mine tonight. But looks like that's one way to prepare it.

Anyway, I highly recommend this to anyone who has never tried it before! So good!
