Bananas Foster

Last weekend I attended the Builders and Remodelers Expo here in town. My husband’s company, Innovative Surfaces, always has a booth, and it’s just a great time to see all the new products and services that the home-building industry has to offer. We saw some very cool lighting and outdoor furniture in the Gadsden Lighting booth:


We checked out the residential line of Viking appliances from Southern Kitchen and Bath. They are less expensive than Viking’s commercial line, but still maintain the integrity of the Viking name:


And we tried our best to win this fire pit from Alabama Brick. It costs less than $400, and it goes together in about 30 minutes.


But I couldn’t leave there without snagging Chef Nick Hartman’s recipe for Bananas Foster. Nick is the cooking expert for Alabama Power, and they were cooking Bananas Foster and featuring their induction cook top. It can boil water in 90 seconds, but it is cool to the touch. Pretty cool!

So here is the recipe, which was the highlight of the show:

4 bananas
1/2 cup clear rum
2 oz butter
1 teaspoon banana liqueur
2 tablespoons brown sugar
406 scoops vanilla ice cream

Over medium heat, melt the butter with the brown sugar. (I didn’t get a picture, so I found this one online. Hope Ree Drummond doesn’t mind!)


When butter and sugar are melted together, add sliced bananas. Add the banana liqueur, turning and basting the bananas thoroughly.


With heat on high, add the rum and flame.


Serve immediately over vanilla ice cream.

  2. The flame has always been the most appealing thing about bananas foster.
