Bananas Foster

So I’m at home staring at bunch of bananas from my co-op basket.  So anyways I have more bananas that I could eat in a week and I’m craving something sweet, when it dawns on me that I probably have everything I need to make bananas foster.  Only I’m wrong because when I look up recipes it calls for dark rum and walnuts both which I do not have.  So I read around a bit and realize I can use Baileys (which I do have) and pecans and here is the recipe I ended up with.

Bananas Foster




  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 2/3 cup brown sugar
  • 3 1/2 tablespoons bailey’s
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 3 bananas, peeled and sliced lengthwise and crosswise
  • 1/4 cup halved pecans
  • 1/2 gallon vanilla ice cream




  1. In a large, deep skillet over medium heat, melt butter. Stir in sugar, baileys, vanilla and cinnamon. Mixture will heat up quickly so make sure to have everything measured out.  
  2. When mixture begins to bubble, place bananas and pecans in pan. Cook until bananas are hot, 1 to 2 minutes. Serve at once over vanilla ice cream.

This recipe was delicious and exactly what I was looking for.  It was smooth and creamy with little tiny crisps of sugar.  Tastes just like the bananas foster I enjoyed at a top notch restaurant.  Will definitely make this again with no changes.

The bananas were from my co-op basket this week so they cost me about $0.80.  The ice cream was $3 for a half gallon from Fresh and Easy, the pecans were left over from the brie recipe I made this weekend and everything else was on hand.  This whole dessert could serve 4 and costs only $3.80.  Great deal!
