Banana Foster

Hi everyone! Hope you had a fantastic Christmas day! Yesterday I made dessert for my family so I want to share the recipe with you. I made Banana Foster with chocolate & vanilla ice cream and butterscotch sauce. It was truly amazing!!! So easy to make (within 5 minutes) and everyone was raving about it!

Banana Foster recipe: adapted from AllRecipes.com

Ingredients:
- ¼ cup butter
- ⅔ cup dark brown sugar
- 3 tablespoons dark rum
- 1 ½ teaspoons vanilla extract
- ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 3 to 5 bananas, peeled and sliced lengthwise

Instructions:
- In a large, deep skillet over medium heat, melt butter. Stir in sugar, rum, vanilla and cinnamon. When mixture begins to bubble, place bananas in pan. Cook until bananas are hot, 1 to 2 minutes. Serve at once over ice cream.

Butterscotch Sauce recipe: Nigella Lawson - Express

Ingredients:
- 3 tablespoons light muscovado sugar or light brown sugar
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- ½ cup golden syrup
- 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
- ½ cup heavy cream
- Splash vanilla extract

Instructions:
- Melt the sugars, syrup and butter in a saucepan and boil for 5 minutes.
- Add the cream and vanilla, stirring together, and then take off the heat. It will be very runny, but still you can use it right away. However, if you put it in the refrigerator for 1 - 2 hours it will become thicker.



This is not my photo. I didn't get a chance to take photos. Just to give you an idea of how it looked like.
