    Mexican Bananas Foster Recipe
    Ready in: < 30 minutes
    Difficulty: 3
    (1=easiest :: hardest=5)


    3/4 cup Light brown sugar (packed)
    3/4 cup Kahlua or other coffee flavored liquor
    12 tablespoons Unsalted butter; cut into tablespoons
    6 Ripe bananas; peeled, and cut into 1/2" thick rounds
    Ground cinnamon; to taste
    Vanilla ice cream

    Build a charcoal fire in an outdoor grill and let burn until the coals are covered with white ash. Let the fire burn down to medium-hot (you should be able to hold your hand at grate level for 3 seconds).

    In a gas grill, preheat to Medium. Tear off 12-inch squares of aluminum foil. Fold one foil square in half. On the bottom half, place 2 tablespoons brown sugar, 2 tablespoons Kahlua, 2 tablespoons butter, and 1 banana. Sprinkle with a pinch of cinnamon. Fold the foil over to form a packet, crimping the open edges to seal. Repeat with the remaining ingredients. The packets can be prepared up to 1 hour ahead and kept at room temperature.

    Grill the packets until the sugar, Kahlua, and butter are boiling, 5 to 7 minutes. Open the packets, pour over bowls of ice cream and serve immediately.

    Pick DRUID’S anser.
    SHE is correct.

    I also have the recipe and have had it in restaurants. There’s not much of a deviation on the recipe. It’s just as simple as that.

    Kruish’s recipe is also good but it’s not the original. Try them both and see which one you like best.

    Ingredients: – 1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter
    – 1 cup brown sugar
    – 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
    – 1/4 cup banana liqueur
    – 4 bananas, cut in half lengthwise, then halved
    – 1/4 cup dark rum
    – 4 scoops vanilla ice cream


    Combine the butter, sugar, and cinnamon in a flambé pan or skillet.
    Place the pan over low heat either on an alcohol burner or on top of the stove, and cook, stirring, until the sugar dissolves.
    Stir in the banana liqueur, then place the bananas in the pan.
    When the banana sections soften and begin to brown, carefully add the rum.
    Continue to cook the sauce until the rum is hot, then tip the pan slightly to ignite the rum.
    When the flames subside, lift the bananas out of the pan and place four pieces over each portion of ice cream.
    Generously spoon warm sauce over the top of the ice cream and serve immediately.
    Serves Four
