Banana foster (also called “Flambéed banana”) is the easiest and cheapest yet delicious dessert you can do with an overripe banana. No need for expensive gluten-free flours for this yummy dessert.
If you are too scared to make it flambéed, no worries, you absolutely don’t need to do that. You can also have it without any alcohol, it will still be delicious. When we were kids, my mother would throw 4 bananas in a pan, cook them as described below, then remove those for my brother and I and then she would flambée the other 2. Now that I’m an adult I like it both ways.
I love this so much that sometimes I just let some bananas get overripe on purpose! ????????
Why do we add sugar to a banana that already contains natural sugar? Because it will make a delicious caramel.
