#TastyTuesday - Ignite-the-Flames-of-My-Desire Bananas Foster

 Images of placing food onto that delicate tongue excited him. "I'm new in town. What's the best on the menu?"

"Well, you're in the right place."

 "If you like beef, they have the best Filet Mignon with a mushroom and wine sauce. Oh, and get the garlic and thyme roasted asparagus to go with it. To die for."

"Sounds superb!" He smiled. "I'm sure you have something in mind for dessert."

"Ignite-the-Flames-of-My-Desire Bananas Foster."


"That's the name of the dessert." Steph's laugh rolled over him like a warm wave. "It's rich with rum, creamy, and spicy with cinnamon. The waiter actually sets it on fire."

"Hmmm... sensual."

How would you like to have your own sensual dessert?

Romantic Dessert:
Ignite the Flames of My Desire Bananas Foster

1/4 C. butter
1 C. brown sugar
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
4 bananas
1/4 C. dark rum
1/4 C. banana liqueur
vanilla ice cream

Cut peeled bananas in half lengthwise, then halve each length. Set aside.
In a large skillet combine butter, brown sugar, and cinnamon over med-low heat. Stir until sugar dissolves.

Add bananas. Saute, stirring gently, until banana pieces begin to cook and brown slightly.

Pour in dark rum and banana liqueur. Heat through, about 30 seconds to one minute.
Tilt skillet slightly. Using a long-handled lighter, ignite the rum and liqueur. Shake gently to spread the flames.

When flames have subsided, serve one banana (4 pieces) with one or two scoops of ice cream, to taste. Spoon over lots of warm sauce. Serve before it melts.

Serves 2-4 depending on pigginess factor.
