Easy Bananas Foster

If I had to choose the best dessert I have ever eaten, what would it be?  Bananas foster - The warm, sweet bananas and the cold, creamy ice cream make a great combination.

This recipe was simple to make and it came out great!  For safety reasons you can still enjoy this dish without the flamb√©.

Ingredients:
* 2 tablespoons butter
* 3 bananas, sliced
* 1 cup light brown sugar
* 1 teaspoon vanilla
* 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
* 1 pinch salt

Directions:
Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat.  Add sliced bananas and stir for 2 minutes.  Add brown sugar, vanilla, cinnamon, and salt.  Lower heat and continue cooking, stirring constantly for 2 more minutes.  Serve over  ice cream.
