About this recipe: Bananas simmered in brown sugar, butter and Irish whiskey for a delicious quick treat to serve with vanilla ice cream.
I made a big vanilla ice cream four layer tube cake and poured the boozy bananas over the top and lit it on fire for a party. Not only was it a show stopper but such a great tasting uncomplicated dessert. *If you want to flame this in front of guests, heat a little booze over the stove before pouring it on. Cold booze won't ignite very well. - 02 Jan 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I have made this recipe twice the first time just like the directions and then the second time like a friend of mine told me to do it. The other way to do it is to heat the butter and sugar is a small pan, once melted add the bananas. Constantly stir the mixture until the bananas are heated thru. At the last minute put in the alcohol. When doing this I find that you taste the alcohol a little more! - 19 Oct 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
A quick and easy recipe. Awesome with french vanilla ice cream. Once I substitued the whiskey for amaretto liqueur (Disaronno), that was delicous too. However, if you use amaretto, don't forget to change the name to italian bananas. - 13 Oct 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
