You can add chocolate and caramel sauces to it. You can add whipped cream. You can add more liquor if you wish to. Make this. This is not your kids' Sundae!

Let’s make it!

Prep time: 10 minutes

Cooking time: 10 minutes

Serves 4 to 6 people

I'll be honest...this is not a dessert for the faint of heart or those counting calories! It is something I make once or twice a year because it is special and decadent. And I never regret it!


  • 4 to 6 bananas

  • 1/2 cup of brown sugar

  • 1/3 cup of unsalted butter

  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla

  • 1/3 cup of De Kuyper Crème de Banana or Rum

  • ground cinnamon

  • fresh strawberries and blueberries

  • vanilla ice cream

  • Caramel Sauce (optional)

  • Chocolate Sauce (optional)

  • Whipped Cream (optional)


Step 1: Making the Bananas Foster sauce

  1. In a frying pan over medium heat, melt the butter with brown sugar. Stir frequently until well incorporated. Add the vanilla. Cook until it begins to bubble up.

  2. Slice 3 bananas and add them to the butter/sugar mixture. Cook until bananas become soft and mushy. Slowly add the Creme de Banana. You can do a little flambé showcase if you are doing this while entertaining guests.

  3. Bring temperature to low and add 1/4 cup of ice cream. Allow it to melt then slowly mix it all together.

  4. Set aside.

Step 2: Making the sundae

  1. Place a scoop, or two, of ice cream in a bowl.

  2. Pour some of the sauce on top of the ice cream.

  3. Top with fresh bananas, berries, chocolate sauce (optional), caramel sauce (optional), and whipped cream (optional).

  4. Sprinkle some cinnamon over it.

  5. Enjoy!
