So versatile, so delicious and so easy to make, this bananas foster recipe is going to be something you will want to prepare all the time. Serve these tasty bananas on French toast or waffles in the morning for a very tasty breakfast or try them on top of vanilla ice cream at night for a perfect dessert. These bananas foster are also great on their own, straight out of a bowl- no extras needed for this mouthwatering recipe! Pecans are recommended here as a light variation to traditional bananas foster which typically has walnuts. If you prefer walnuts, go ahead and use them! Peanuts, cashews and chopped almonds would also be delicious. Make sure to use a dark rum with this recipe for its rich flavor!
- Slice two bananas in half lengthwise and again in half widthwise (you should have eight pieces of banana). Set aside and in a medium sized frying pan, melt the butter over low heat.
- Add the rum and let it simmer for about one minute to cook off any alcohol.
- Add the brown sugar to the pan and stir until it is melted
- Add the banana slices and cinnamon and let cook until the liquid begins to thicken, about 1-2 minutes.
- Add the chopped pecans
- Remove from the pan and serve immediately while hot in a bowl, on ice cream, paired with crepes or however you choose!
– While dark rum is the standard for bananas foster (and quite good with the bananas and nuts), try using Gran Marnier for a orange flavored version of this recipe.
-If you have some fresh strawberries, slice them and add them along with the bananas for a even more fruity treat.
-Be sure to constantly stir the mixture once everything has been added to the pan as the sugar and rum in this recipe can burn quickly. Remove from the heat right when the liquid begins to thicken to prevent any burning from happening.
