Step 1

Bananas Foster Sauce:

Cut bananas in 1-inch pieces. Top with 2 tablespoons water and set aside.

Melt butter in a heavy skillet over medium heat. Add sugar and cinnamon and cook, stirring until sugar is almost dissolved, about 2 minutes.

Add banana liqueur (mixture will bubble).

Carefully add the rum; the alcohol will flame on its own, then die down.

Add bananas and water to skillet, turning bananas with a spoon as the liquid caramelizes.

Remove from heat and keep warm.

Mint Simple Syrup:

Puree the mint in the blender.

Bring water to a boil in a small, heavy-bottomed pot. Add mint and steep for 10 minutes.

Pour liquid through a fine mesh strainer. Keep the water, discard the mint.

Bring the mint water back to a boil and add the sugar, boiling about 3 minutes until clear and reduced to a thin syrup.


Place 2 slices of angel food cake in a generous serving bowl. Add a scoop of wanilla ice cream to the side. Pour bananas Foster sauce over the angel food cake. Drizzle mint syrup over ice cream; garnish ice cream with a sprig of mint.
