Brill's Banana's Foster

Banana's Foster: Serves Two….has alcohol in it though, although most of it burns off in the cooking process.

Please be very careful, this is a FLAMING dessert, meaning the alcohol you add flames, making a great show!)

Warning: my husband and I regularly eat this in one sitting, alone, when I make the whole recipe, so make sure you make enough! Continue reading
