Bananas Flambéed in a Warm Caramel Sauce

Flambé refers to lighting a dish on fire. Use this dessert at the end of a dairy meal. This dessert can be made on the spot and can be a great cause of entertainment for your guest if you choose to flambé the caramel rum sauce.


  • Prep Time : 6 min
  • Ready Time : 6 min




  • ¼ cup butter
  • ¾ cup brown sugar
  • 3 tablespoons rum
  • ½ vanilla bean sliced in half or ½ teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • 3 bananas


Melt butter, cinnamon, vanilla bean and sugar, in pan.

Add sliced bananas.

Add rum. If you choose to flambé (light a fire over the caramel), step away from pan while lighting a match. Place a match on liquid and watch it flambé. The fire will cook out the alcohol and die down in less then a minute.

Serve over vanilla ice cream.
