Chef John's Bananas Foster
March 07, 2018

A relatively quick and easy dessert, with ingredients that are usually on hand. Ice cream scooped out and in bowls in the freezer before dinner helped to minimize the timing between dinner and dessert. Our exception to following the above recipe was banana liqueur, which we didn't have; Butterscotch Ripple Schnapps was the substitute. I'll possibly add a dribble of that over the ice cream when serving next time - to boost the yum factor. Really, almost any flavored liqueur (or even vanilla extract) would likely work here. Perhaps we didn't wait long enough for the rum to self-ignite, but we ignited it with a BBQ lighter to prevent the bananas from overcooking. Will try for more success on that part next time! Clean up was easy too. Thanks so much for sharing your recipe.
