The time honored Bananas Foster dessert got a slight re-tweaking the other night when our neighbor down the hall was over for a casual dinner. We had a stash of crepes, a rogue banana and some brandy put by the by so we made this very impromptu dessert, riffing on Bananas Foster. She supplied the hazelnut butter, or Nutella, as is more commonly found.
Impromptu Bananas Foster
Take 1/2 cup turbinado sugar stirred until melted, with a tablespoon or two of melted butter until liquid. Add 1 banana, sliced thinly and throw in a splash of brandy. Carefully light it on fire. Slather 1 crepe with Nutella (or hazelnut butter), decorate it with your mixture of sugar, bananas and brandy. Do enjoy!
Serves one, or two if your guest is interested in sharing.
