Bananas Foster for Two
Published April 24, 2007.
While the bananas cook, scoop the ice cream into individual bowls so they are ready to go once the sauce has been flambéed. Before flambéing, make sure to roll up long shirt sleeves, tie back long hair, turn off the exhaust fan (otherwise the fan may pull the flames up) and turn off any lit burners (this is critical if you have a gas stove). A dark rum like Myers will give this dish a potent rum flavor, for less intense rum flavor, use a variety like Bacardi Gold.
