Bananas New Orleans

One of my most popular dishes, this one can easily be prepared for dessert while the coffee is brewing. It's delicious by itself, or it really makes a statement when served over vanilla low-fat ice cream.

Makes 4 servings
1         teaspoon margarine
½        cup orange juice
2         tablespoons firmly packed brown sugar
½        teaspoon rum extract
½        teaspoon vanilla butternut flavor*
2         medium, ripe bananas, cut in half lengthwise, then each piece cut in half crosswise
           (Choose bananas that are ripe, yet firm.)
           Ground cinnamon

Gather Ingredients

 Melt margarine in a medium nonstick skillet over medium heat.

 Stir in orange juice, brown sugar, and extracts.

 Add bananas.

Cook 2 to 3 minutes, then turn bananas carefully and cook another 1 to 2 minutes.

 Sprinkle with cinnamon.

 Place 2 banana pieces in each of 4 individual serving bowls. 
Spoon sauce over bananas.
Serve right away.

*Often called "vanilla butter and nut flavor," it is found with the extracts in many large grocery stores. If you cannot locate this flavor, use ½ teaspoon vanilla extract plus ½ teaspoon butter-flavor extract in its place.
