Easy Bananas Foster Recipe: A Famous New Orleans Dessert Recipe With a Little Drama by 30Seconds Food
The famous bananas foster dessert recipe was invented at Brennan's restaurant in New Orleans. The dessert is not only popular because it's sweet and absolutely delicious, but at the restaurant it is flamed tableside. You can skip the flames at home, but if you want the drama, do it! Just be careful and always tilt the pan away from you when igniting.
