Rum-Glazed Banana Tartlets

With multigrain bread as a base and only a bit of butter, sugar, and rum as a glaze, we transformed the classic New Orleans dessert known as Bananas Foster into a lighter but still enticing treat.

  • prep: 20 mins
    total time: 20 mins
  • servings: 4

Ingredients

  • 4 large slices (about 3 by 5 inches) multigrain bread, crusts removed
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons light-brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons rum
  • 3 to 4 ripe bananas, halved crosswise and thinly sliced lengthwise

Directions

  1. Step 1

    Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Using a rolling pin, flatten bread to about 1/8 inch thick; place on a baking sheet. In a small saucepan, melt butter over medium-low; lightly brush both sides of bread with half the melted butter (leave the rest in saucepan). Bake until lightly browned, about 4 minutes per side (leave oven on). Set aside.

  2. Step 2

    Meanwhile, place saucepan with butter over medium heat. Add sugar; stir to combine, and bring to a boil (mixture will foam and bubble). Remove from heat. Stir in rum.

  3. Step 3

    Place bananas on bread, overlapping slightly. Bake until warmed through, about 5 minutes. Remove from oven, and brush with rum mixture. Serve.
