Mix time and flowers together with a date for love. Gradually stir in romance and a hug. A pinch of spice can be added for flavor. These are the ingredients from which memories and love are made.
Food for Thought by Carol Kirby
Usually this dish is flamed to burn the alcohol out.
Simmering will release most of the alcohol from the rum, but if you would rather – use 1 teaspoon rum extract and a cup of apple juice in place of rum.
4 tablespoons butter
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup maple syrup or 2 tablespoons dark molasses
1/4 cup rum
1 teaspoon cinnamon
4 bananas, sliced lengthwise
Melt butter in a wide skillet.
Add brown sugar and stir to dissolve.
Add syrup, rum and cinnamon, stirring constantly for 10 to 15 minutes.
Add bananas; stir to coat and heat 2 to 3 minutes.
Serve with whipped cream or vanilla cream over ice cream or on top of pancakes.
Edit: Please note, it is rare that I edit a given recipe, but since I have more than a few diabetic friends I suggest you might consider deleting the maple syrup dark molasses ingredient. Cinnamon to taste.
The rum should be white rum and if you really want to liquor it up, add 1 oz. of banana liquor. (or banana extract)
