1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup rum
1 stick butter, cut into pieces
1/4 cup cognac
Slice bananas lengthwise and cut into one-inch pieces. Place butter and banana
chunks in a shallow pan over medium heat. When butter is mostly melted, add
brown sugar and simmer for five to eight minutes (go longer for a softer result).
Add rum. Want more alcoholic bananas? Turn off the heat now. For a milder buzz,
simmer for another two minutes. Drizzle cognac over the bananas, then light
with a Bic and serve.
