Brown Sugar Bananas
|Ripe bananas||4 , peeled|
|Butter||4 Ounce (120 Gram)|
|Soft brown sugar||4 Pound (Light / Dark)|
|Ground cinnamon||1 Pinch|
|Ground nutmeg||1 Pinch|
|Orange juice||1⁄4 Pint (140 Milliliter)|
|Rum||60 Milliliter (4 Tablespoons, White / Dark)|
|Lemon||1⁄2 , juiced|
|Whipped cream||1⁄4 Pint (140 Milliliter)|
|Chopped pecans||2 Tablespoon|
1. Cut the bananas in half lengthwise and sprinkle with lemon juice on all sides.
2. Melt the butter in a large frying pan and add the sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg and orange juice. Stir over gentle heat until the sugar dissolves into a syrup.
3. Add the banana halves and cook gently for about 3 minutes, basting the bananas often with syrup, but not turning them.
4. Once the bananas are heated through, warm the rum in a small saucepan and ignite with a match. Pour the flaming rum over the bananas and shake the pan gently until the flames die down naturally. Place 2 banana halves on each serving plate and top with some of the whipped cream. Sprinkle with pecans and serve immediately.
