Bananas Foster Recipe – Delicious Over Vanilla Ice Cream!

How to Make Bananas Foster Today I’m going to show you how I made one of the most popular desserts at my Restaurant! It may be different from how other people make Bananas Foster, but don’t let this discourage you from trying this recipe.

Bananas Foster is a classic New Orleans dessert that is sure to please any sweet tooth. It is made by sauteing ripe bananas in a butter and brown sugar sauce, then flambéing them with rum or Bananas Foster liqueur. The bananas are then served over vanilla ice cream, making for a rich and decadent treat.

Bananas Foster was the most popular dessert in my restaurant and can be found in restaurants all over the world. While the exact origins of Bananas Foster are shrouded in mystery, there’s no doubt that this DELICIOUS dessert will continue to be a favorite!

The trick is to make sure your serving bowls are very cold, so when you pour the hot bananas on top of the ice cream, you can experience an outstanding hot and cold sensation. For an even more dramatic effect, pour 1 tablespoon of 151 proof rum and light it up!
