All I can say is, "Oh, Baby, what a treat!" ;-)



Preheat over to 400 degrees F.

Mix the sugar, lemon juice, butter, and rum together in a small saucepan and simmer for 10 minutes.

Meanwhile, peel and slice the bananas in half, lengthwise. Place bananas cut side down in a lightly buttered baking dish.

Pour the rum sauce over the bananas and bake for 30 minutes, turning once. Allow to cool slightly and serve.

Note: I just tried making these again on Sunday but used brown sugar instead of regular sugar and they are even better using the brown sugar!

Jonni Ready, one of the best bakers I've known, made this rum sauce. She made a rum roll that she used to bring to the flower shop I worked at. The sauce is wonderful, even on angel food cake.

She used to make all kinds of treats for the flower shop. She made the best angel food cakes, and an avocado pie topped with real whipped cream, that was so good. She made us huge molasses cookies like the ones that the "tall ships" carried on their long voyages; and the best peanut butter cookie, oh yum.


  • 2/3 cup milk
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 Tbsp. corn starch
  • 1 Tbsp. Rum (You can use a good rum extract if you'd like.)


Put milk, water, sugar and salt in pan and bring to a light boil. Add combined starch, egg yolk and water. Bring to a boil. Turn off heat and cook 1 to 2 minutes. Add rum and stir in.

This spirited dessert is usually prepared as summer fruits come into season but here, this old-time European favorite has been adapted to the off-season using fresh ingredients if available, frozen berries and canned fruit where necessary.
