Recipe for :

Bananas Flambe

It is many years since Hub-UK was first launched. It has been created from recipes contributed form all over the world, from professionals and amateurs alike. A great many of the recipes do not have any details as to who sent them in or from where they came. It would be a shame not to share them with you for this reason alone.

This is one such recipe. If you know where it originated, or perhaps it is even yours, let me know and I will add the necessary credits and acknowledgements.

"The most indispensable ingredient of all good home cooking - love, for those you are cooking for" ~ Sophia Loren.


2 x bananas, ripe but not soft
1 x butter
3 tbsp brown sugar
1 x rum, dark


  • Take 2 ripe, but not soft bananas and cut in half, then split lengthwise.
  • Melt a few tablespoons of butter over medium heat.
  • Add 2 - 3 tablespoons of brown sugar and stir.
  • Add bananas. Cook until fairly warm and starting to soften (about 1 minute).
  • Flip bananas and allow to cook an additional 30 seconds.
