I’m pretty sure this is how I’m going to get a husband.
One sunny afternoon, I’ll be making this wonderful creation:
I’ll serve it up to that special someone. He’ll take a bite and propose to me right then and there. Simple as that.
Okay, so it probably won’t happen that way, but I can almost guarantee that if you were to feed this to a fella (or lady! Gentlemen, don’t be scared to get in the kitchen!) it would most certainly, at the very least, land you a date.
Worth a shot, right?
Bananas Foster Creme Brulee
6 prepared ramekins of custard for creme brulee
3-4 bananas, sliced
3 tbsp butter
3 tbsp brown sugar
3 tbsp hazelnut liqueur (or rum, optional)
6 tsp white sugar
In a skillet, melt together the butter and brown sugar. Add bananas and turn the heat up to high.
Add the hazelnut liqueur. Shake the pan a little bit then flip each banana. Once the liqueur has reduced (and nearly completely evaporated), turn off the heat.
Arrange bananas over custard.
Sprinkle with a teaspoon or so of white sugar.
Using a kitchen torch, burn the top of the bananas so you get a good caramelized crust.
Serve and wait for a dinner invite/proposal/confession of adoration/etc.
If this doesn’t work… then I’m pretty sure men are crazy, and I’m doomed to be an old maid.

This would get you a husband for sure. But then he’s just going to bug you to make it all the time…you’d probably be better off just keeping this one for yourself 🙂
I used to work at a restaurant and our signature dish was bananas foster prepared tableside – although I used to use a banana liquor and we served it over brandy icecream.
I am just jealous you have a kitchen torch, but I am positive my husband won’t let me have one more kitchen utencil! But now that I think of it, they are small and I can hide it! 😀
what a great idea! i’m going to make a coconut crème brûlée base for this and top with some rum (don’t have any hazelnut liquor, though that sounds amazing) 🙂
Ahh coconut creme brulee!! Brilliant idea! I hope it’s amazing! Let me know how it turns out!
