Ingredients:  
4 tbsp. butter

1 cup brown sugar
4 tbsp banana liqueur
1/4 - 1/3 cup rum
4 scoops vanilla ice cream

Directions:
Directions:
Melt the butter over an alcohol burner in flambe pan. (Also works in nice pan over stove burner.) Add sugar, cinnamon, and banana liqueur and stir to mix. Heat for a few minutes, then place the halved bananas in the sauce and saute until soft. Add the rum and allow it to heat well, then tip the pan so that the flame from the burner causes the sauce to ignite. (Or use a long lighter), wait until the rum gets hot, so that you get a good flame when it's ignited. Allow the sauce to flame until it dies out, tipping the pan with a circular motion to prolong the flaming. Lift the bananas carefully out of the pan and place 4 pieces in each serving dish. Add a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top, then spoon the hot sauce from the pan over the bananas and ice cream. Enjoy!
