Bonnie Oatey


3 bananas, cut into 1/4" slices
1/4 cup light brown sugar
4 tbsp. unsalted butter
1/4 cup liquor, bicardi or Malibu rum
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 - 2 cup vanilla ice-cream, to serve

Slice the bananas and set them aside. '

Heat a 10" skillet over medium heat and add the butter and light brown sugar. Stir until ingredients are incorporated and simmering.
Add the bananas and spread them evenly. Simmer them for a few minutes and gently stir them to insure they are cooked evenly. The bananas will start to become slightly translucent during this process. The goal is to have soft bananas but not baby food.
Lower the heat and pour the liquor into a measuring cup. Add vanilla extract to the measuring cup then add to the skillet. Turn the heat off and gently stir.
Serve with the vanilla ice-cream.

NOTE: There is no need to set the bananas on fire because the amount of liquor is not sufficient. This
dish is fantastic and has a strong hint of liquor, but is not overpowering.
