A delicious variation of Bananas Foster that’s perfect with ripe peak season peaches. A fun live presentation when serving guests!
1/2 cup butter
2/3 cups brown sugar
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon, to taste
4 ripe peaches, sliced thin
1/3 cup rum (dark preferred)
1 quart vanilla ice-cream or Gelato - very cold!
In a saucepan melt butter with brown sugar and cinnamon. Cook over medium high heat, stirring occasionally, until golden brown, about 3 minutes. Add sliced peaches and heat through, carefully turning to coat.
Turn hood vent on. Carefully heat rum over low heat until warm in a saucepan - taking care to keep the edges of the pan from the flame or it will ignite prematurely.
Carefully pour the warm rum over the peach mixture, tip the pan to ignite with the stoves flame (for electric stoves, use a long lighter). When flames subside, spoon the peaches and sauce over very cold vanilla ice cream.
Note: A sprinkle of cinnamon over the flames will add sparkle and flash to your service.
