    About this recipe: This is a slightly Caribbean take on the classic banana split - with the flavours of caramelised banana, dark rum and lime.

    Ingredients
    Serves: 4 

    • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
    • 2 bananas, cut in half crossways then lengthways
    • 60ml dark rum
    • 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
    • 1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    • 2 tablespoons lime juice
    • 1 litre vanilla ice cream, softened
    • 4 tablespoons chocolate sauce
    • 125ml whipped cream, whipped

    Method
    Prep:20min  ›  Cook:5min  ›  Ready in:25min 

    1. Melt butter in a large nonstick frying pan over medium-high heat. Cook bananas in butter until they are browned and begin to soften, about 1 minute. Remove pan from heat; stir in rum, nutmeg and cinnamon. Use a long match or lighter to carefully ignite the liquid in the pan. Allow to burn for 15 to 30 seconds; if necessary, extinguish by placing lid on pan.
    2. Continue to cook until sauce has reduced by half, 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in lime juice; cook for 1 additional minute.
    3. Divide ice cream between 4 serving bowls. Top each with the warm bananas and rum sauce mixture. Drizzle each banana split with chocolate sauce, and top with whipped cream.
