The pineapple, banana and fig flambé is a charming combination of fruits topped with a flavoursome sauce of butter, sugar and spices, which is then baked lightly, sprinkled with rum and set aflame. The flambé with rum enhances the aroma and taste to a great extent. Ice-cream is a good accompaniment to this dessert.
