Mark Boughton Photography / styling by Teresa Blackburn PrintEmail Brennan's Restaurant's original recipe uses 1/4 cup banana liqueur and 1/4 cup dark rum. We opted for an all-rum version. Ingredients 1/4 cup butter1 cup packed brown sugar1/2 teaspoon cinnamon1/2 cup dark rum, divided4 medium bananas, cut in half lengthwise, then halved1 cup vanilla ice cream, divided into 4 scoops Instructions Combine butter, brown sugar and cinnamon in a flambe pan or skillet. Place over low heat and cook, stirring, until sugar dissolves. Stir in 1/2 cup rum, then place bananas in the pan. When banana sections soften and begin to brown, carefully add remaining rum. Continue to cook until rum is hot, then ignite if desired. When the flames subside, lift bananas out of pan and place four pieces over each scoop of ice cream. Spoon warm sauce over top and serve immediately.
