In a large skillet, melt butter. Using a wooden spoon, add brown sugar and stir together. Add the bananas and cook until caramelized on both sides, over medium-high heat. Move pan off heat, add the rum and return to the stove to catch a flame from the gas stove or a long lighter. Stand back when ignited and flambe the bananas.

Can you substitute the rum for something else in the banana foster recipe. My husband wants to cook this offshore but liquor is not allowed.This is so good over bread pudding.
