    bananas foster

    SANDY GRAF from FORT WAYNE, IN

    It tasted like the bananas foster we had when we were on vacation. I added a little alcohol to the adult servings and left the recipe as it is for the kids. I scraped a vanilla bean instead of using extract. It was a hit, they will be asking for it again here.
