Bananas Foster

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bananas Foster is a dangerous dessert. It is wildly delicious and so easy-peasy-lemon-squeezy you’ll find yourself whipping it up every chance you get. The bananas you need to use before they go bad = Bananas Foster. The last banana left over from the week’s fruit smoothies = Bananas Foster.

Bananas are far from being my favorite fruit. If I’m being honest, I don’t really like them. At. All. BUT when they’re sautéed in butter, brown sugar and alcohol they’re suddenly super tasty!

TIPS:
Bananas are soft to start so don’t overcook them or you’ll end up with mush.
Rum is the traditional alcohol used in Bananas Foster but Grand Marnier or Triple Sec give the sauce a refreshingly Burke of flavor.
TOOLS:
Medium nonstick sauté pan
Wooden spoon
Ice Cream Scoop
TECHNIQUES:
Simmering
