You guys know I’m always tryna sneak healthy ingredients into my recipes, right? Well, Bananas Foster Mini Skillet Flambé is one of the very few recipes where I actually don’t do that because…Fat Tuesday, dude! So, this means I’m ALL IN on butter, brown sugar, and ice cream. Oh, but wait…it has banana and pecans in it…that makes it healthy, right?
Bananas Foster Mini Skillet Flambé
One of my favorite things about this recipe, besides caramelized bananas smothered in ice cream, is that it’s a single serve recipe in a cute 5″ cast iron skillet. So, you can make as few or as many as you like…and they all look adorable. In my fictitious restaurant, this dessert is definitely on the menu.
And it only takes 10 minutes to make! May I add just how ridiculously easy Bananas Foster is? If you haven’t made this dessert, and you have someone to impress, give this one a go!
To flambé or not to flambé…that is the question.
Well, it’s up to you, but since flambé is an open flame in a skillet, ALL precautions MUST be taken to avoid injury and prevent fire. That said, once you have your responsible adult supervision all lined up, and your fire extinguisher on hand, you’re good to go!
These safety efforts are so worth it when you taste the magic that occurs when you flambé; i.e., burn off the alcohol, leaving you with rich, rum flavored, buttery caramel sauce. It’s pure heaven!
