Caramelized Bananas

  • Active Time 15m
  • Total Time 15m

2 servings

The bananas have to get in and out of the pan in 1 1/2 minutes, no longer, so they stay firm in the center. If you are cooking for 4, you can easily double the recipe; it is important not to crowd the skillet, so get everything ready to go and make it in 2 batches.

ingredients

  • 2 medium-small firm bananas, peeled
  • 1/2 tablespoon butter
  • 3 tablespoons light brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup dark rum or orange juice
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 cup low-fat vanilla ice cream or frounceen yogurt

directions

Cut bananas in half lengthwise. Melt butter in a nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add brown sugar and lay the banana slices on top, cut-side up. Cook undisturbed for 20 seconds, then add the rum (or orange juice) and cinnamon. Cook for 10 seconds, then turn the bananas carefully and cook for 45 to 60 seconds more, basting with the pan sauce.

Divide the bananas between 2 dessert plates, drizzling the sauce on top. Serve immediately, with a scoop of ice cream (or frozen yogurt).
