Watch how to make slow cooker bananas foster

Print this recipe
If you've ever taken a cruise or been in a restaurant where a flaming dessert was being served, you may have wondered how you could make something like that at home. Now you can with the bananas foster recipe below!
Traditionally, bananas foster is made on the stove, finished with a splash of liqueur (often dark rum), and set ablaze. While flaming liqueurs add a dramatic flair and a rich, alcohol-free flavor, you might want to try the simplified version below instead. Your slow cooker offers a great way to make this classic dish without standing over a hot stove, too. So, let's get cooking!

Slow Cooker Bananas foster
10 minutes
2 hours, 30 minutes
2 hours, 40 minutes
4 bananas, cut 2" wide
1 cup dark brown sugar
1 stick butter, small diced
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 white rum
1/4 water
In a 6-quart slow cooker, add in everything except bananas. Mix well.
Add in bananas. Gently toss with your fingers, so bananas don't get smashed.
Cook on high for 2 hours 30 minutes. Gently mix. If you like the consistency and texture of bananas, you're all done! If not, cook further until you've reached your desired texture.
Serve over your favorite vanilla ice cream and throw your hands in the air!
 Tip: If there is any dessert leftover, which is doubtful, refrigerate and use as a pancake or waffle topping the next morning.
Note: All slow cookers are a little bit different in temperature and calibration. This recipe was tested in Cooktop Cove's Test Kitchen using this slow cooker, which is available for purchase here.
