Caramelized Rum Bananas and ice cream is one of the simplest and quickest boozy desserts you can make. Keep it in mind when you need a spectacular sweet with no time investment.
As you probably know, I just got back from a week long trip to Jamaica (which I won from BevMo!)

So after eating lots of tropical fruit, many of which I’d never seen or heard of before, you’ll be seeing their influence here on my blog, including today’s delicious concoction which will be a pleasant tropical treat in the midst of this horrific winter that many in the US, UK and Europe have been experiencing.
Each morning in Jamaica, I’d have a lovely little banana which was grown on the resort’s property and it was incredibly delicious.
I’m not a huge banana fan like some people I know, but in certain recipes, they really are wonderful, and I think this Caramelized Rum Banana recipe is one of them. It’s something you can throw together in a few minutes using only four ingredients, yet is really quite impressive too!
Caramelized Rum Bananas
with Ice Cream
makes 2 servings (photos show 1 banana)
- 2 tbsp good quality butter
- 3 tbsp dark brown sugar
- 2 ripe bananas (not overly ripe/brown), peeled, cut in half and sliced in lengthwise
- 1 or 2 tbsp dark rum (omit for alcohol-free)

Place the butter and sugar in a sauté pan over low heat, and stir until the sugar dissolves and begins to bubble. Simmer for about 2 minutes then add the bananas; continue to simmer and turn the bananas for another minute or so.
