Flambé means flamed in French, and is an adjective used to describe food that is drizzled with some spirit, usually brandy, and set alight for a few moments. This procedure gives the food an exquisite flavour and texture.

The Banana Flambé is a perfect dessert to serve a party of adults. The bananas are sweetened with brown sugar and covered with flaming brandy. While still warm, the flambé is topped with vanilla ice-cream and served immediately.

I serve this for parties and just as I make it I serve it immediately and all guests love it. The combination of bananas along with sugar, butter, brandy and topped with vanilla ice cream is sooo good.
