Total time:


3 tablespoons light margarine
1/3 cup firmly packed brown sugar
3 bananas peeled and diagonally sliced 1/4 inch thick
6 dashes ground cinnamon
1/3 cup white rum
3 tablespoons banana-flavored liqueur
3 cups fat free vanilla ice cream or yogurt


1. Melt brown sugar and margarine in a medium nonstick sauté pan over medium heat.
2. Add bananas and cinnamon, and sauté until tender, stirring occasionally. (Use this time to find your matches!)
3. With matches ready, pour rum and liqueur separately over bananas, stand back and attempt to “touch” the liquid (particularly the rum which is most flammable) with your lit match. Be sure to yell, “Everybody now… OOPA!” as it lights. (The louder the OOPAs, the better it will taste!) Continue to simmer dish over medium heat throughout flaming process (about 20 seconds).
4. Once flame goes out on its own, serve immediately over 1/2 cup single servings of ice cream.
