Flamin’ Banana Mac Sundaes
by Rosina Tinari Wilson
Magazine Issue: U.S. Vol 3.4
Flamin' Banana Mac Sundaes

This sticky, gooey, fire-breathing concoction was inspired by a killer dessert -- Banana Rum Raisin Tower with Banana Flambe' -- from wizard Alan Wong, whose Japanese/Chinese heritage, Hawaiian upbringing and French classical training put a new spin on "East meets West."

6 large bananas, peeled and sliced 1/2" thick
1 can macadamia nuts, coarsely chopped
4 ounces (1 stick) butter
1/2 cup dark brown sugar
1/4 cup pineapple juice
1/2 cup (preferably dark) rum
Ice cream or frozen yogurt, several flavors (suggestions: rum raisin, coffee, caramel, white chocolate)
Granish (optional): Shredded toasted coconut

Over medium heat, saute bananas and macnuts in butter -- until bananas melt a bit -- about 5 minutes. Add sugar and pineapple juice; stir until sugar dissolves, and raise heat to high. In the dark – for extra drama, add the rum, and tilt the pan to ignite. (If the rum doesn't catch fire by itself, torch it with a match.) Meanwhile, have everybody help themselves to ice cream, then ladle on the flaming banana-mac sauce. Top with coconut, and enjoy.
