Warm 5 tablespoons butter in a saucepan over low heat. Stir in maple syrup. Then stir in rum, fruit cocktail juice and lemon juice to taste. Remove from heat, and set aside.
Warm 2 tablespoons butter in a frying pan. Place halved bananas in frying pan and fry on both sides until golden and a bit crisp on the edges.
