Chef John's Bananas Foster
Chef John's bananas Foster is a show-stopping, crowd-pleasing dessert that is surprisingly quick and easy to make.
Originally I used light brown sugar, regular captain and Carmel vodka. It didn’t turn out well. It was too sugary. I made it again as the recipe says except for salted butter and it turned out perfect. I was hoping to find some other liquors to use but didn’t happen. Love banana’s foster and it is an easy dish to make.
Oh ya delicious! I really love bananas foster and a restaurant that made it closed down and I haven't had it since. So glad Chef John has the recipe and video to explain how to make it. I couldn't find the banana liqueur, but it still turned out great. The flavor is like eating at a fine dining restaurant. We've made it a few times now. We have a microwave above our stovetop, so we have to be careful - we pull the pan away from the stove and use a long nose flamer to light it so the flame-up doesn't damage our microwave.
Simple. Easy. Delicious! Didn’t have any banana liquor on hand so just went with dark rum. The flambé was fun and the sparkling cinnamon was very cool. Can’t wait to make it again! Cheers!!!
Such an amazing dessert and so easy! It was a hit. I didn’t have banana liquor, so I just substituted with another ounce of white rum. I will definitely be making this again!
These may be the best recipes for celebrating Mardi Gras. But then again, these New Orleans classics like gumbo, etouffee, po'boys, jambalaya, and bananas foster are perfect for any day of the year.
