Banana’s Foster ala Sperry’s

Preparation time: 5 minutes Cooking time: 10 minutes Serves: 3


Delicious banana's foster that one can order at Sperry's steakhouse in Nashville, TN. You could probably change bananas to whatever fruit you like best (peaches, pears, apples) and swap banana liqueur for the appropriately flavored schnapps.


  • 2 bananas, half stick of butter, 1/3 cup brown sugar, 1 or 2 shots of banana liqueur, 1 or 2 shots of Captain Morgan’s rum or brandy or alcohol of choice. 2 teaspoons cinnamon. Bowls of vanilla ice cream.


Chop up bananas, and melt butter in medium skillet. Add brown sugar until it starts to caramelize. Add bananas & alcohols and set on fire if desired, (this is mostly for show) otherwise continue to brown. Extinguish flames with lid (if necessary) and pour over ice cream. Top with a light sprinkling of cinnamon (or nuts, whip cream, etc.) and devour.
