BANANA FLAMBE

An end to a great BBQ, even the dessert is made on the grill. For the kids just prepare a small one on the side without the liqueur. Serves 4

1 Store bought pound cake 1
1/4 cup Butter 50 mL
1/3 cup Firmly packed light-brown sugar 75 mL
3 small Ripe bananas 3 small
1 cup Strawberries, hulled and halved 250 mL
1 tbsp Grated orange peel 15 mL
1/4 tsp Cinnamon 1 mL
1/4 cup Orange flavored liqueur 50 mL
Vanilla ice cream

  • Cut pound cake into 16 slices (1/4 inch [1 cm] thick) On clean grill, cook cake slices on low until toasted on both sides. Set aside.
  • In large cast-iron skillet on grill, over medium heat, melt butter with sugar. Peel and halve bananas crosswise, cut halves lengthwise in half. Add bananas to butter mixture, saute 2 min, turning once. Remove pan, stir in strawberries, orange peel, cinnamon.
  • Carefully flame liqueur, pour over fruit.
  • On each four serving plates, place 2 slices of cake. Top each cake slice with a scoop of ice cream; spoon fruit mixture over ice cream. Place a cake slice on top of each scoop, tilting slices toward each other to resemble butterfly wings. If desired, sprinkle with orange-peel slivers.

    Note Warm liqueur before flaming, by placing the liqueur in measuring cup and microwave for 25 seconds.
