Split and slice bananas into small pieces. Melt butter over low heat, add sugar, spices and creme de banana (if used) and bring to a boil. Heat bananas in sauce and pour brandy and rum over mixture, then ignite. Serve over vanilla ice cream after flames subside. Serves 6 (use 6 scoops ice cream for one scoop person, 12 scoops for 2 per person). >From _La Bonne Cuisine, Cooking New Orleans Style_ Posted by "Edward J. Branley"
