110g butter
115g brown sugar
4 bananas peeled, halved and cut lengthwise
60ml dark rum
Ice cream, optional
Pound cake, optional
1) Melt the butter in a large frying pan. Using a wooden spoon, add the brown sugar and stir together. Add the bananas and cook until caramelized on both sides, over a medium-high heat.

2) Move the pan off the heat, add the rum and return to the stove to catch a flame from the gas stove, or light with a long lighter. Stand back when ignited and flambe the bananas. Be careful – a flame will shoot up above the pan. Let the flame die down and the alcohol cook out.

3) Serve the bananas over vanilla ice cream and/or with a slice of pound cake.
