This simple dessert is a take on the classic Bananas Foster. I figured the flavors of brown sugar, cinnamon & rum would go together with apples just as well as bananas. And really isn't it fun to play with fire...
1 apple, peeled, cored & sliced thin
1 T salted butter
1/8 t cinnamon
1 1/2 t brown sugar
pinch of nutmeg
2 T rum
Melt the butter over medium low heat in a skillet. Add the apple slices & cook on low for about 10 minutes, stirring from time to time, until the apples are soft & just starting to color. Sprinkle the cinnamon, sugar & nutmeg over the apples & stir. Carefully pour in the rum (be especially carefully pouring liquor in a pan on a gas stove). Once the rum is hot set it one fire, use a lighter or torch with a long handle to keep from burning yourself. Turn off the stove & allow the rum to burn itself out. Pour over vanilla ice cream.
(excuse the messy bowl but this dish melts fast so you have to be quick with the photo!)
