Software

  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1/4 cup dark brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
  • 1 tablespoon banana liqueur
  • 2 under-ripe bananas, quartered
  • 1/4 cup bourbon
ACTIVE TIME: 15 minutes
TOTAL TIME: 15 minutes
Yield: 2 servings

Procedure

  • Melt the butter in a 10-inch heavy skillet over low heat. Add the brown sugar and nutmeg, and stir until the sugar dissolves. Add banana liqueur and bring sauce to simmer.
  • Add the bananas and cook for 1 minute on each side, carefully spooning sauce over bananas as they are cooking. Remove bananas from pan to a serving dish.
  • Carefully pour the bourbon into the pan and ignite with a long match or stick lighter. Continue to cook until the flames die out and the sauce coats the back of a spoon, 1 to 2 minutes. Serve immediately with ice cream, waffles, or crepes.
