  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup dark rum, divided
  • 4 medium bananas, cut in half lengthwise, then halved
  • 1 cup vanilla ice cream, divided into 4 scoops


  1. Combine butter, brown sugar and cinnamon in a flambe pan or skillet. Place over low heat and cook, stirring, until sugar dissolves.
