Caramel sauce is one of my favourite foods and there’s something magical about combining it with bananas! This is a super simple caramel sauce made with butter and brown sugar that’s simmered with fresh bananas until they are tender and golden brown! I enjoy eating caramel bananas by the spoonful and they are great served on vanilla ice cream, french toast, pancakes, etc.
Note: To make bananas foster, add a splash of rum and ignite the rum, carefully!
