Got this idea from “The Chew” and had to try it. It’s a really easy and delicious dessert taking the New Orleans’ classic, bananas foster, and dumping it right into a cake batter and baking it.
Step 1: Make a vanilla cake batter (buy a mix or make one from scratch). Preheat your oven to 350. Place the cake batter in the baking dish you want to use.
Step 2: Saute 1/2 stick of butter with 1/2 cup of brown sugar (and a pinch of salt). Add chopped bananas (and plantains if you have them). Add a splash of rum or bourbon (it may flame up on you, so be careful).
Step 3: Dump the bananas foster right into the cake batter and pop into the oven. Heat for 30 to 40 minutes until a toothpick comes out clean.
Step 4: Serve the warm cake with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream. A drizzle of caramel sauce and a sprig of mint leaf would be the perfect garnish!
