    • banana flambee

      never thought I'd love this dish. I'm not a great fan of bananas especially cooked, but this dish that I tried in Cuba was really good. Banaas were slighly cooked (will get a proper recipe later), but the trick is - rum. It was set on fire and blue flames were poured over the fruit. It was spectacular. :) It took about 30sec for the flames to disappear after that the dessert could be eaten. It's very pow Phe since the ingredients are bananas, rum, some butter (I think, not sure) and some sugar. That's it. I'll try my best to find you a good recipe that you can try at home (just be careful with setting rum on fire - it has to be done in separate dish)
      Carpe Diem!
    • Wow, that sounds delicious. :D Hopefully you can provide a recipe soon :]

      That reminds me of "baked bananas". I had that for dessert in a restaurant. I thought it would be only honey and bananas. You fry the bananas with the honey. That's so delicious. But then I found out, that the most common way to prepare them is to add some dough. So I never had that again. I might try that with a low-phe dough. I'll find a recipe for that too.
