Banana Pineapple Foster
BANANA PINEAPPLE FOSTER
I've never had the real Banana's Foster, even after several visits to New Orleans. I came up with this recipe many years ago when I was in Kenya and cooking dessert for a group of people using what was at hand. I had a huge sweet and juicy Pineapple. (If you have never had a fresh Pineapple picked right from the plant grown along the Equator, you are missing one of Nature's most incredible treats!) And plenty of Bananas. I thought I was inventing a new sauce having never heard of Banana's Foster at the time. I didn't have Rum or Vanilla Ice Cream in Africa but I remember the sauce being thick, luscious and amazing and all of us licking our plates clean. Real Banana's Foster does not have Pineapple in it so this recipe is with a tropical twist. The aroma, as it cooks, becomes intoxicating as the Brown Sugar and Butter melt laced with Cinnamon. Try serving this over Pancakes or Waffles for breakfast on a special weekend morning. You don't have to be in Africa to be Cooking The Amazing, just the desire to eat an amazing dessert.
