Caramelised Bananas with Rum

Had some left over bananas lying around at home and needed to use them up quick smart! This recipe was inspired by Gabriel Gate's version of flaming bananas or some shit. I saw it on Channel 9's morning show when I home kind of sick many years ago :)

  • 2~3 Sliced Bananas (length ways would be more preferable)
  • 1x shot of rum (I used cognac because I ran out of rum lol)
  • 1x clump of butter
  • 2~3 tablespoons of brown sugar (any is fine)
Chop up the bananas and sprinkle it with sugar, covering all sides, let it sit in the fridge for around 30 minutes. Once ready, heat up a pan, and melt the butter. Add in bananas and let them caramelise, noting colour, flip when ready desired colour has been reached. Add in rum/cognac and set alight (CAUTION THIS COULD BURN THE HAIRS OFF YOUR FINGERS) and remove from heat. Let the alcohol burn off completely (this takes around 40~50 seconds).

Serve up with extra fruits, icecream and chocolate sauce.

** Gym for 2 hours the following day.
