Bananas Foster

This is one of my mom's top favorite desert, mainly because of the banana in it, she is a fanatic about her banana.
This is a relatively easy recipe to do, and you can easily impress your lady (or man).

1 banana, cubed
a shot of spiced rum (or 2....or 7) just kidding
1 Tbsp cinnamon
1/2 cup brown sugar
Vanilla ice cream

Start or with adding the cubed banana into a sauce pan, and put the brown sugar and cinnamon on top of it, caramelize it until it looks like melted caramel. Once it is at this stage, get out another sauce pan, and put the shot of spiced rum into the cause pan, let it heat up until there are a lot of bubbles. This is the part were you impress anyone, watch your hair, and set it ah-light. Let the rum stay on fire for about 30 seconds, and add to the caramelized banana. Let it cook for about 30 more seconds, then blow out the fire, and serve over ice cream.

I do not have a story to tell about this recipe, but it would be quite funny if I caught my hair on fire... Kind of. But I do have a question, feel free to comment.
