Classic Bananas Foster: Made in minutes with just a few ingredients! Sweet bananas bathed in warm brown sugar sauce & flambeed for an amazing presentation!
Place the butter, brown sugar, cinnamon, and salt in a large skillet over low heat.
Whisk together while cooking, until the butter has melted and the sauce is smooth (about 3 to 5 minutes).
Peel, split, and quarter the bananas, and add them to the warm sauce.
Gently fold the bananas into the sauce, allowing them to cook until softened (about 2 to 3 minutes).
Remove the skillet from the heat, add the rum (if using), and light it on fire with a wand lighter (the flame may be difficult to see but you will probably be able to hear it).
When the flames subside (after a minute or two), spoon the warm bananas and sauce over vanilla ice cream.
*The same amount of dark brown sugar can be substituted.
