TGIF! Time for Some TLC! Kauai Bananas Foster


Well, it is finally Friday, and what a week it has been  Time to sit back, relax, and exhale.  Time for some TLC, comfort food, and fun.  Ice cream, in a decadent adult recipe, is all this…and more.

Kaua’i Bananas Foster

¼ c butter

1 c brown sugar

½ t cinnamon

¼ c macadamia nut liquor (banana liquor may be substituted)

4 bananas, cut in half lengthwise, then halved

¼ c Kaua’i light rum

1 pt very rich vanilla ice cream (Lappert’s?)

1 c coconut flakes, toasted

macadamia nut baking pieces, lightly toasted

whipped cream

In a large skillet or broiler, combine butter, brown sugar, cinnamon, and macadamia nut liquor.  Heat until the butter is melted and the sugar is dissolved.  Add the bananas.  Cook under medium heat until the bananas begin to soften.  Increase the heat to high, and when brown sugar begins to boil, add the rum, tilt the pan, and ignite carefully so you do not singe your eyebrows.  Flambé while shaking the pan gently to evenly distribute the alcohol. When the alcohol burns off, decrease the heat to low and cook a few more minutes. The bananas should be soft.  Grab 4 bowls (or just 1 if it has been a really really bad week for you), evenly distribute the pint of  vanilla ice cream.  Sprinkle some toasted coconut and toasted macadamia nuts on top, then pour over 3 or 4 bananas and some sauce.  Add whipped cream (why worry about fat, calories, or that bikini now?) and garnish with some additional toasted coconut and toasted macadamia nuts.  Serve hot!  It should make 4 people happy, or 1 person reach bliss……
