French Food Friday - Bananas flambé with mascarpone cream

This is a recipe that I found recently and it is delicious, if you do not want to make the mascarpone cream you can serve with vanilla icecream.

Bananas flambé with mascarpone cream

4 Bananas peeled and halved lengthways

2 tbsp butter

2 tbsp Honey

¼ cup Havana Club Rum

For Mascarpone Cream

100 g Mascarpone

100 ml cream

1 tsp Rum

1 tbsp  Honey


 To make mascarpone cream; In a bowl, mix all ingredients and beat until it forms a stiff peak.

Peel and halve each banana lengthwise.

Melt butter in a frying pan over medium heat. Cook the bananas 3-4 minutes each side.

Add the honey, heat through and toss to combine. Take the frying pan away from the heat, tilt away from you, then pour in the rum. Flambé. Cook until the flame dies down for a minute or so. (If it does not light itself then carefully ignite with the flame of the gas element or a lighter.)

Serve bananas with mascarpone honey cream. 

Bon appetit ♥
