Movie night is a weekly staple in our house! In fact, my kids love it so much they actually ask how many days until the next one before one is over. My favorite way to get great holiday movies is through Netflix. Now, it is not surprise to my loyal readers that Netflix is my choice. I have bragged about them for a while now. And with the holidays fast approaching, I love that I can do a movie marathon with my girls on a cold and rainy weekend that includes all of my holiday favorites!
But movie night is not the same without awesome foods too. Curtis Stone, who is an amazing chef, has a recipe I have been wanting to try for myself. I knew the girls would love it – ice cream and banana’s y’all – but I needed to modify the Up In Flames Drunken Bananas to not include the alcohol or fire! It was really easy. I just took that part out! He created this recipe in honor of the craziness on the show Arrested Developement. If you have not seen it, it is hysterical! Watch it on your iPad, big screen, and even your phone with Netflix! I pay less than $10 a month and can get any show I want, with no commercials.
Anyway, back to the recipe. Here is Curtis’s recipe for you to follow. Mine is basically the same sans alcoholic beverages and I did not substitute anything in for it.
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 6 minutes
Make-Ahead: The spiced ice cream can be made up to 3 days ahead, kept frozen. The flambéed bananas must be served as soon as they are made.
Spiced Ice Cream:
1 pint vanilla ice cream
1 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
1/8 teaspoon ground ginger
Large pinch of ground cloves
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
1/4 cup (packed) dark brown sugar
1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 medium bananas, peeled
1/4 cup golden rum
2 tablespoons heavy whipping cream
To make the spiced ice cream:
1. In a medium bowl, break up the ice cream with a spoon, then mix in the nutmeg, ginger,
and cloves. Cover the ice cream and return it to the freezer. Keep the ice cream frozen
until ready to serve.
To cook the bananas:
2. In a 12-inch nonstick frying pan, melt the butter over medium heat. Stir in the brown sugar, lemon juice, and cinnamon. Slice the bananas in half lengthwise and lay the bananas cut side down in the butter mixture. Cook for about 3 minutes, or until the bananas are caramelized on the underside and the sugar mixture has melted and become golden brown.
3. Remove the pan from the heat. Add the rum. Using a long match, carefully ignite the rum. Be sure to do this in a well-ventilated area and away from any flammable material. Allow the flame to burn out. Turn the bananas over. Return the pan to medium heat and stir in the cream. Baste the bananas with the caramel sauce for about 1 minute.
4. Divide the bananas between two plates. Spoon some sauce over the bananas. Top each with a scoop of ice cream, and then drizzle the remaining sauce over and around the ice cream and bananas. Serve immediately.
So, for mine, take out the Rum and the fire. To be honest, I love mine and don’t miss the flavor the Rum gives it. But if I were making this for adults, I would add it and it would be delicious!
