This is Brent's favorite dessert of all time! We all have our kryptonite and this is his. Bananas Foster is an American dessert that originated in New Orleans made with cooked bananas served in a butter, brown sugar and rum sauce. The caramelized liquor-based sauce is often prepared using a cooking technique called flambé and is served with vanilla ice cream or as a crêpe filling and is excellent on pancakes and waffles as well.
1/4 cup butter
2/3 cup dark brown sugar
3 1/2 tablespoons rum
1 1/2 teaspoons Madagascar Vanilla Extract
1/2 teaspoon ground Saigon Cinnamon
3 bananas, peeled and sliced lengthwise and crosswise
1/4 cup coarsely chopped walnuts
1 pint good quality vanilla bean ice cream
Optional: Lightly sprinkle a touch of fresh ground Grenada Nutmeg on top
In a small bowl combine saffron and hot water, allow to cool completely to fully extract flavor and color.
Soften ice cream at room temperature for 10 minutes. When ice cream is soft but not melted, place in a large bowl with the saffron mixture. Add rose water, chopped pistachios, and ground rose petals. Hand mix until well combined. Return ice cream back into its original container and freeze until hard, about 4-6 hours.
