Rum-Sauced Bananas

This rich sauce is wonderful over a couple scoops of vanilla ice cream. It also shimmers nicely in candlelight (hint-hint).
  • 1/8 c. apple juice
  • 2 tsp. brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. margarine
  • dash ground nutmeg
  • 1 large banana, peeled and sliced
  • 1/2 T. rum
  • 1/2 c. vanilla ice cream

Combine apple juice, brown sugar, margarine, and nutmeg in a 1-quart microwave-safe casserole. Micro-cook, uncovered, on high for 1 minute. Add bananas, tossing to coat. Cook on high for 1 1/2 minutes or until bananas are heated through. Spoon sauce over bananas again.

Pour the rum over the bananas in the casserole. Carefully ignite with a long match. Serve the mixture over ice cream.
