Bananas Foster

The days are hot, the nights are getting chilly, so do we go with a hot dessert after dinner or a cold one? With this week's Golden Blossom Honey recipe feature, you don't have to choose. With this amazing Bananas Foster recipe, you get the best of both worlds. A warm, inviting syrup mixture paired with a cool, creamy scoop or two of vanilla ice cream blends perfectly into a transitional recipe fit for both summer and autumn. 

 
I've never been a rum drinker, but since Jason always has a bottle on hand, I figured why not give this recipe a try and see what's what. Worst case scenario, he has to eat two bowls for dessert LOL. Thankfully I found myself pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoyed this classic treat, saving his waistline a few extra calories. The honey definitely tones down the strong notes in the rum, leaving this more of a subtley sweet dessert with a slight note of warmth to round everything out beautifully. Since this recipe can be made quickly, it's a great dessert to save for date night snuggling on the couch catching up on the latest movies, something we'll be doing more of as summer starts to wane and fall comes creeping in. 

Ingredients

3 tablespoons GOLDEN BLOSSOM HONEY
1/2 cup dark rum
4 ripe bananas, sliced
1/2 cup pecans, toasted and chopped
vanilla nonfat frozen yogurt

  1. I'm like our sweet lord Jace and adore rum in anything! And a combo with bananas is pure perfection indeed!
    I don't think summer with start to wane here any time soon, we still have hellish temps of over 40*C and a hell front from Africa is just about to arrive here again, and they say it will be over 30*C in September as well, this was the hottest summer bummer ever.

    1. I'm not a fan of rum. Then again, I never liked tequila until I discovered orange creamsicle margaritas at our local Mexican restaurant LOL.

      It's nasty here, temp wise. I walk outside and feel like I hit a brick of compressed air. I sweat terribly and just want to go back in. I'm starting to see why you and Jason dislike summer so much.

  2. I have to warm up a fruit pie! Tastes so much better! I like just about any dessert though, warm or cold.

  3. I prefer them HOT. There's something comforting about a warm dessert, even on the hottest day. That being said, I'd try this. When I was in Greece, I was shocked to see how much rum they used in their desserts. Even cakes would sit on a thin layer of rum. At first I was scoffed at it, but it does give a nice flavor.

    1. I had no idea that the Greeks had such an affinity for rum! I'd love to visit there some day, so I guess I should start working on my tolerance for its flavor.

  6. That's a good tip that the honey cuts the rum. I don't think I've ever had Bananas Foster but I wouldn't mind trying it. It looks good.

    1. I can't believe I had never had it before either. We love banana desserts here, but for some reason I always went for pies or parfaits or pudding made from banana instead.

  13. I’ve never had anything like this, but would so try it.

    I spent the morning making zucchini bread. Somehow I f-ed it up. It was all salty tasting. I swore I followed the recipe. Oh well - can’t win them all. Usually what I make tastes good.

  14. I like desserts warm, then topped with cool. Warm pie or cake with cold ice cream.
