Ingredient list



Cooking Directions

Position a rack about 8 inches from the broiler element and preheat the broiler to high. Butter the bottom of a flameproof 11 by 7-inch baking dish with 1 tablespoon of the butter, and arrange the banana slices in it in one even layer, cut sides down. Set aside. In a small saucepan over medium-high heat, combine the remaining 1 tablespoon butter with the brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, and orange juice. Cook, stirring, until the sugar begins to melt, 1 to 2 minutes. Remove from the heat and stir in the orange zest. Pour the sauce evenly over the bananas.


Place the baking dish under the broiler and cook, turning the bananas over midway through, until the sauce is slightly thickened and bubbly and the bananas are tender, about 6 minutes total. Remove the baking dish from the broiler, and if desired, drizzle with rum. Set aside to cool briefly before serving. Serve the bananas over vanilla ice cream, if desired, with some of the sauce drizzled over the top.
