C is for carmelized bananas

I can't take credit for this wonderfully sweet, decadent dessert.  My daughters concocted this one for dessert one day...

It is so simple and so good!  This is super fast when you wind up with unexpected company and don't have a dessert to serve.

Caramelized Bananas

You need:

bananas - generally one per person
brown sugar
pinch of salt
Rum or pure vanilla extract

Using a frying pan, melt 1 part butter and 3 parts brown sugar over medium heat until it is no longer grainy and looks silky.  Add flavouring and stir gently.

Peel bananas and cut in half lengthwise.  Add bananas to the pan and gently heat.

Dish some vanilla ice cream into bowls and top with bananas and sauce.
