Inactive Prep:
5 min
1 to 2 servings


  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter
  • 2/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1 banana, sliced on the bias
  • 1 1/4 ounces bourbon, such as 1792 Ridgemont Reserve
  • 2/3 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 3 scoops premium vanilla ice cream


Melt the butter in a saute pan over medium-high heat. Add the sugar and cook until caramelized, and then stir in the bananas to coat. Remove the pan from the heat and pour in the bourbon.

Turn the heat up to high, and then carefully return the pan over the heat, catching the flame from the burner to flambe the bananas. Sprinkle with the cinnamon and remove from the heat. Serve the bananas and sauce mixture over the ice cream.
