One of our family’s traditions is to go out to brunch.We find a great restaurant or a resort that has brunch, and meet there as a family.Everyone gets to have what they like, and there’s a lot less complaints than having a meal with someone hosting. It was at one of these brunches that I first discovered Bananas Foster.
I’m not normally much of a banana fan. However, I do love Bananas Foster. The rich depth of the maple flavor plays nicely with the sweetness of the bananas, especially when they’re sauteed together. Add in the brown sugar and butter, and it’s just so indulgent.
