Brennan’s Banana Foster

4 tablespoons butter
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
4 bananas, cut in half lengthwise, then halved
About 1/4 cup rum
4 scoops vanilla ice cream

Melt the butter in a heavy skillet. Add the sugar and cinnamon. Stir to mix. Heat for a few minutes and place the halved bananas in the sauce and sauté until soft and slightly browned.

Heat rum in separate pan until it's warm (ideally 150 degrees F). Add the warmed rum to the simmering bananas mixture. Light carefully (if you are concerned about flames, have a lid handy to put out the flame)

When the flame dies, lift the bananas carefully out of the pan and place four pieces over each portion of ice cream and spoon the hot sauce from the pan over the top. Serves four.
