We know you’re already wondering what is a banana foster and how is it made. A Banana Foster is considered to be “retro” type dessert by was created by the way of New Orlean Chef Paul Blangé in 1951.
- 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, room temperature
- 2 bananas, sliced 1/3-inch thick
- 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1 cup dulce de leche or your favorite caramel sauce
- Vanilla ice cream, for serving
- Mini chocolate chips, for serving
In a 12-inch nonstick skillet, melt the butter over medium-high heat until it begins to bubble. Add the bananas in a single layer and cook for 1 to 2 minutes, or until beginning to brown. Flip the bananas with a rubber spatula and brown them slightly on the reverse side. Sprinkle with the cinnamon and cook for another 30 seconds, stirring occasionally. Gently mix in the dulce de leche; simmer for 1 minute, then set aside to cool a bit. Serve over ice cream, with mini chocolate chips sprinkled over the top.
