Bananas Foster

For Christmas this year my wife was given the cookbook The Pioneer Woman Cooks: Food from My Frontier and we have been loving every minute of it!

We decided a few weeks back to try our hands at bananas foster but have been very busy. Today we made it happen.

So now the fun/exciting/dangerous part. Add in some of your spiced rum of choice and light the whole pan on fire!
Keep in mind that by adding alcohol to an already screaming hot pan you are atomizing that alcohol, so please do this with caution!

Flame on!
Flame on!

Fun fact: Cinnamon will make sparks if you add it to a flaming dish from high up.

Don't burn down the house!
That’s pretty neat!

Let the flames burn until they go out on their own, this turns the entire dish into a non-alcoholic dish that is kid friendly and fun to watch being made!
Serve hot over ice cream (homemade if possible, otherwise your favorite brand of vanilla bean)

Not horribly hard to make, this recipe serves way more than just the two of us! This recipe takes roughly 10 minutes to make and is a fantastic way to impress guests with your “mad skills.”
