I had this one night with friends in Austin and had to get the recipe. Yum!

Bananas Foster

1 cup brown sugar
1 1/2 t. vanilla (optional)
1/2 t. cinnamon (optional)
1/4 cup banana liqueur (optional)
3-4 ripe bananas
1/4 cup dark rum
Vanilla ice cream

Melt butter and sugar in pan until sugar dissolves over low-medium heat. Add vanilla, cinnamon, and banana liqueur (if desired) and bananas. Cook for about 5-6 minutes till softened and starting to brown. Add rum and cook till hot, then ignite. Serve over ice cream.
