Bananas Foster

1/4 cup butter
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp vanilla or rum extract
1/4 cup hot water
4 bananas

Over low heat combine butter, sugar and cinnamon. Stir frequently until the sugar dissolves. This takes quite a while but don't be tempted to crank the heat.

Once the sugar mixture starts bubbling, add the hot water and the flavor extract.

Cut the bananas in half, then again lengthwise. Add the bananas, cut side down in the pan. Shimmy the pan every couple minutes to cover the bananas and to prevent burning.

Cook until the bananas are softened and have a sugary crust on the bottom.

Serve the bananas with a little of the sauce over the ice cream.
