Go bananas

26 May

At a loss for what to serve for dessert? It doesn’t get any better – or easier – or tastier than bananas foster. This is a dessert fit for a fancy dinner party or “just because.” Appears I am on the banana trail this week – first banana daiquiris and now this stunning banana dessert. I found this version in still another one of those Better Homes and Gardens Encyclopedia of Cooking (1970) cookbooks, Volume 1. Chances are you have everything on hand that you need to make it. Just look at this gorgeous presentation! Tastes as good as it looks – absolutely scrumptious!

Bananas Foster

Peel 6 large ripe bananas and halve lengthwise, brush with lemon juice. In skillet melt ¾ cup brown sugar and 6 tablespoons butter. Add bananas; cook till almost tender, about 3 minutes. Drizzle ¼ cup orange liqueur atop. Serve with ice cream.

Cook’s note: recipe can easily be altered for more or less. Pictured is just a single banana split (pun intentional).
