Antigua and Barbuda: Flambéed Bananas

This recipe was so much fun and so delicious.  We used this recipe from, but I saw a lot of other variations that looked just as good.

I mixed the sauce ingredients (brown sugar, water, cinnamon, nutmeg, and lime juice) in a skillet until thickened.


Then added the peeled and sliced bananas and cooked for a few minutes.


Then we transferred the bananas and sauce to another pan, drizzled some rum on top, and lit it on fire!


The finished product was served hot over vanilla ice cream.
