Yum! Banana rum sauce!

Looking for something quick, delicious and elegant to satisfy your sweet tooth? Try my banana rum sauce. It pairs well with ice cream — or you can use mad science to create your own perfect pairings.


Get your pyro on — then cool down with this banana rum sauce over ice cream!

1/2 cup butter

3/4 cup brown sugar

3/4 teaspoon cinnamon

1/2 cup lemon juice

2 tablespoons orange juice

1/2 cup rum

Bananas, chopped

Melt butter. Add sugar and cook, stirring, until melted. Add cinnamon, orange and lemon juices. Cook one minute. Add chopped bananas — as many as you think you want. In a separate pan, warm the rum, ignite (be careful!) and then pour into sauce. In case you don’t have an audience for your pyrotechnics, this makes about 2 cups of sauce that can be saved, warmed and poured over ice cream and new bananas as long as it lasts.
