Bananas Foster

Flambeed desserts have long illuminated historic New Orleans restaurant dining rooms with their showstopping flames. The most famous of these French Creole classics is bananas Foster, created in 1951 by chef Paul Blange at the now-legendary Brennan's Restaurant. This luscious creation, traditionally prepared tableside, features sliced bananas flambeed with rum and vanilla. Although Hurricane Katrina heavily damaged Brennan's, the restored restaurant is back in business and continues to enchant diners with its signature dessert, the most-requested dish on the menu.

Surprisingly good
January 29, 2011
This recipe was most pleasing because it was elegant, complex, and incredibly easy. I subbed bourbon for the rum the second time and it was even better. I would recommend using a very dark, unspiced rum if you can find one. Additionally, if you like your sauce to have caramelized crunchies, be sure to let it caramelize slightly longer than the recipe calls for prior to the flam-be. If you prefer smooth sweetness, watch the sauce very carefully and pull it from the heat before it begins to fully bubble. The bananas are pretty forgiving as far as cooking time is concerned.
