My version of Bananas Foster, Peanut Butter Bread Bananas Foster, is a decadent rum-lace caramel sauce over peanut butter bread. It’s made with sliced bananas, brown sugar, butter, and peanut butter bread and tastes absolutely amazing!
This famous New Orleans dessert is the epitome of decadence!
WHAT IS BANANAS FOSTER?
Bananas Foster is a dessert made from bananas and vanilla ice cream, with a sauce made from butter, brown sugar, cinnamon, dark rum, and banana liqueur. The butter, sugar, and bananas are cooked, and then alcohol is added and ignited. The bananas and sauce are then served over the ice cream.
Owen Brennan, owner of Brennan’s Restaurant, challenged chef Paul Blangé in 1951 to create a dessert with bananas. Chef Paul named the dessert after Richard Foster who was a regular at the restaurant.

- Combine the butter and sugar in a medium-size skillet. Place the pan over low heat on top of the stove, and cook, stirring, until the sugar dissolves.
- Place the bananas in the pan. When the banana slices soften and begin to brown, carefully add the rum. Continue to cook the sauce until the rum is hot, then tip the pan slightly to ignite the rum. When the flames subside, spoon the bananas out of the pan and over slices of Peanut Butter Bread.
- Generously spoon warm sauce over the top of the ice cream and serve immediately. Add a scoop of vanilla if desired.
