"Plain fresh bread, its crust shatteringly crisp. Sweet cold butter. There is magic in the way they come together in your mouth to make a single perfect bite."--Ruth Reichl

Directions:
Slice the bananas in three slices lengthwise , then cut in half. Melt the butter in a skillet or frying pan, add brown sugar ( you may also add 1/2 tsp. cinnamon if desired) and cook over low heat, stirring into a thick past. Add vanilla and bananas liqueur and stir. well. Cook about 3 minutes. Add bananas slices and cook over medium heat, basting well with the sugar and butter mixture. Cook about five minutes. (Mixture will bubble while cooking).

Heat the rum in a metal cup, ignite and pour over bananas ( Rum will have a faint blue flame in cup and will flame up when poured over the bananas.) Stir well to blend, then serve mixture with pieces of bananas over vanilla ice cream.

Note: Ice cream does best if scooped into balls and frozen ahead of time and bowls are chilled so both are very cold when Bananas Foster is ready to serve.
