Browned Butter, Bourbon and banana sauce
Pour this Browned Butter, Bourbon and banana sauce over ice cream and you will be very, VERY happy

You’re gonna want to pour this Browned Butter, Bourbon, Banana sauce on EVERYTHING…Ice cream, pancakes, FRENCH TOAST WAFFLES (here’s the recipe for that).  I use raw, unrefined sugar in this recipe for it’s deep, rich flavor. You will get some crunchy bits from using raw sugar but I think this just adds to the deliciousness. If you can’t find raw sugar you can use light brown sugar.

I use slightly under-ripe bananas (not green, but not a lot of brown spots wither) in this recipe. These are firmer than very ripe bananas and won’t turn to mush during cooking.

Makes 1 ½ cups

2 Tablespoons unsalted butter1 tablespoon light corn syrup

½ cup raw sugar (brown sugar is a good substitute)

2 slightly under-ripe bananas

1 cinnamon stick or ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/8 teaspoon kosher salt

¼ cup heavy cream

2 tablespoons bourbon or 1 tablespoon vanilla extract

In a 2 quart saucepan melt the butter and let it begin to brown a bit. Add corn syrup, raw sugar bananas, cinnamon and salt. Let this simmer until the sugar has mostly dissolved, about 2 minutes. The raw sugar won’t dissolve completely, leaving crunchy toffee bits (YUM!)Turn off the heat and add the cream and bourbon (or vanilla)

The mixture will bubble up vigorously so use caution.  Stir the mixture to blend and serve over waffles or ice cream or French Toast, or bread pudding…

    Mmm… very nice! When I look at this I think of bread pudding- maybe swirling a big batch through some bread pudding before baking. Then pouring some more on top afterwards!

    Thanks for your reply on Twitter! Your blog looks great- these are the kind of recipes that I really like. Must be my Georgia roots. 🙂
