Flamed Bananas
(Bananes Flambees)
What You Need:
  • 4 ripe bananas
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • Powdered sugar
  • cup brandy, fruit-flavored brandy, or Kirsh

  • How To Cook:
    1. Peel the bananas, cut lengthwise, and then cut crosswise. Melt the butter in a baking dish in the microwave oven.

    2. Coat each side of the bananas with the butter and arrange in a circle (like the spokes of a wheel) with the pointed-end toward the middle and the cut-end toward the outside.

    3. Have the flat side of the banana face-down. Cook, covered with wax paper, until tender (only a few minutes). Be careful to not overcook. Sprinkle with powdered sugar.

    4. Warm the brandy 15 seconds in a handled cup in the microwave oven. Pour around the bananas and flame.

    5. Whipped cream makes a nice topping. Sprinkle on chopped toasted nuts or shaved chocolate.

        Use the red plantain bananas, if they are available. When flaming any food, make certain it is not beneath anything that can catch fire. The flame dies out in a short while, but alcohol flames are hot. The arrangement of the bananas suggested above will give the most even cooking possible.
