Ingredients

  • 6 bananas
  • 6 ice cream
  • 6 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • 3 tablespoon dark rum

Preparation

Baking Directions:

You know those bananas that are so dark and overripe that all you can think of to do with them is make banana bread?

Well, think again.

Instead, throw them on the grill over a medium fire and just let them cook.

What you’ll end up with is a super-sweet banana puree.

Squeeze that over some ice cream, add a little flavored butter, and you’ve got a truly delicious dessert.

But why should you have all the fun?

To let your guests make their own Banana Goop Sundaes, put out a butter dish, a bowl of raisins, and a small pitcher of rum.

Pile the hot bananas on a plate where everyone can reach them, and give each guest a bowl of ice cream, a knife, and a spoon.

Place the bananas, still in their skins, over a medium-hot to dying-down fire and cook until they are practically liquefied inside-about 5 to 15 minutes, depending on the heat and the ripeness of the bananas.

Scoop the ice cream into 6 dessert dishes.

When the bananas have turned to mush inside (you can tell by poking them gently), remove them from the grill.

Cut the tip off one of the bananas and squeeze the hot goop over the ice cream.

Top with 1 tablespoon butter, a few raisins, and a drizzle of rum.

Repeat with the remaining bananas and ice cream.
