Cook's Notes

The key to Bananas Foster's contrasting textures and temperatures is preparing all the ingredients before making the sauce. Remove pan from heat, and add the rum; carefully ignite the rum's vapors using the flame on a gas stove, or with a match. If you cannot find banana liqueur, you may substitute 1/4 cup of water.
