A trully Oscar worthy dessert

This recipe is an unequivocal hit. (Unlike the terrible The Curious Case of Benjamin Button.)

The original recipe, which bears little resemblance version to mine, involves lighting the alcohol in the pan on fire. (I'm too smart to fall for that one!) Here's the recipe:



1/2 cup toasted pecan pieces
1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, cut into pieces
1 cup brown sugar
1 cinnamon stick
6 bananas, peeled and sliced on the diagonal
1/4 cup dark rum


Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the sugar and cinnamon and cook, whisking occasionally, until smooth, 4 to 5 min.

Gently stir in the bananas. Add the rum, and continue to boil until alcohol has evaporated (about 5 min). Remove the cinnamon stick and stir in the pecans.

Serve the bananas and sauce over vanilla ice cream or frozen yogurt.

Enjoy the Oscars! Go Mickey!
