Postby Hj » Sun Dec 11, 2011 11:18 am

Here are few tasty n easy ones for family n friends

Banana Liquor
butter (see below
1/2 to 1/3 c. syrup favorite brand
3 tsps. heaping brown Sugar or more
Vanilla Ice Cream
Garnish with ~ see below

Like a liquor taste- get either rum or pineapple rum. Amaretto if that is what you like.

Melt 1/2 stick butter (depending on my taste that day to fry bananas. Make banana strips (cut in half then into 3 strips. Can do 3 or 4 strips or leave them thick. Fry strips in butter -both sides about 3 or 4 minutes- till looks wilted ñ remove to a plate to cool.

Add more butter to skillet- pour in syrup -heat medium to medium low-add brown sugar ñ melt together. Sauce should be like a caramel sauce. Thick- but pourable.

Now for liquor taste- add in ñ let alcohol evaporate out- careful- when using a gas stove- fumes like to catch fire sometimes. Using a bowl or large martini glass- place vanilla ice cream – some bananas in it. Pour hot sauce over bananas .
You can change flavor of the sauce by using extract too. Or make it like a butter rum banana foster- using cap of butter extract. Add some whip cream with a cherry or sprinkles of candy or those toffee sprinkles or whatever U heart desires.

Desert made with
Fresh bananas cut- strawberries slices- toasted coconut- whipped cream-vanilla wafers ñ banana pudding layered in martini glasses with ice cream right under the whip cream .
