Recipe type: Dessert
Serves: serves 2
  • 2 large bananas – peeled and halved (I’m using 10 mini Senorita Bananas)
  • 2 tbsp rum extract (or dark rum) - optional
  • ¾ tsp pure vanilla extract
  • ¼ tsp ground cinnamon
  • ¼ cup (60 g) dark brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp (15 g) unsalted butter
  • Pinch of salt
  • Vanilla ice-cream
  1. In a small pot or pan, add in rum, cinnamon, vanilla extract and dark brown sugar. Stir and bring to boil. Set aside.
  2. In a large pan or skillet, melt the butter and add in the sliced bananas. Sprinkle some salt onto the bananas and allow them to brown slightly on each sides.
  3. Pour in the cinnamon sugar mixture and swirl the pan to coat the bananas. If the cinnamon sugar has thickened, warm it up gently again.
  4. Turn off heat and allow to cool slightly before transferring onto plate or bowl. Top with a scoop or two of vanilla ice-cream and serve immediately.
