  • 6 ripe bananas
  • 80g butter plus extra
  • 200g brown sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • Pinch of nutmeg
  • 225ml dark rum
  • Vanilla ice cream


    1. Peel the bananas and cut in half lengthwise. Melt a bit of butter in a frying pan.
    2. Cook bananas over direct high heat 4-6 minutes, turning once.
    3. Melt the remaining butter in a heavy sauce pan over medium heat. Add the brown sugar, the cinnamon, and nutmeg, and cook until the sugar dissolves, stirring constantly. Add rum and gently move the pan around to warm the rum, causing it to flame. Continue cooking until the flame dies out. Add the grilled bananas to the hot rum mixture and cook 3-4 minutes more.
    4. To serve, place a large scoop of vanilla ice cream onto each of 6 serving dishes. Place 2 banana halves over the ice cream and drizzle with some of the sauce.
