Bananas Foster—My Favorite Topping Ever

15 Feb

Bananas Foster

Made with butter, dark brown sugar, heavy cream, bananas, pecans, and cinnamon; served with vanilla ice cream.

Oh my, oh my, oh my, oh my, oh my, oh my, oh my, oh my, oh my.  Wow.

The combination of all that warm butter and brown sugar just made me swoon—and then have the nerve to add bananas and pecans into the mix!  Just throw all that warm goodness on top of vanilla ice cream and you’re pretty much done for the day.

The actual recipe also calls for dark rum, but I skipped that part of it.  For all you rum lovers out there, you’ll be adding a few extra “oh my’s” to your dessert should you add the rum.

Earth Balance Butter

The, oh so, delicious butter I used.

Recipe for—Bananas Foster

So, if you have nothing else to do today, get yourself a pot of bananas foster going on the stove.

Take-Away Life Lesson:  You can pretty much say you’ve lived a long fulfilling and happy life after a bowl of this.

    I have done something similar for years. Knob of butter and a few sliced bananas in a fry pan, fry up and toss in a generous handful of brown sugar and cook until the sugar has melted into a caramel. As this has a lot more bananas and a lot less syrup I normally serve it with a good dollop of Greek yoghurt. It is still good with icecream, how could it not be?

    Is it kinda like a butterscotch sauce with bananas and pecans? Sounds pretty damn good…

      I’d say it’s kinda like that. You just don’t want to be disturbed while eating it either. You become one with it.

    Must be butter and brown sugar day! I made a huge batch of granola, held together with a syrup of butter, coconut sugar, and maple syrup.

      Wow, that mixture sounds right up my alley!

    Oh my gosh! That looks so good and so decadent. The sugar rush would probably do me in though. I’ll watch you eat it and grin over my coffee, maybe with a spoonful or two? ^_^

      It’s a sugar rush most definitely! But one I loved. :)
