I attempted to make Bananas Foster for dessert tonight.
I think I had a bit of a mishap.
I did not do the open flame thing. For 2 reasons. One, open flames scare me and two, I have an electric stove. There was no flame to ignite the alcohol(although I could have used a long lighter, I guess).
Yes, this recipe had alcohol. Yes, I am Mormon and not supposed to have alcohol. But it is okay if you are using it to cook and you cook the alcohol out.
I don't think the alcohol cooked out of it, though.
TJ and I both ate it over ice cream. It made me feel a bit light headed. TJ said he felt fine.
Which begs 2 questions...one, was it just in my mind and two, how long does it take to cook with alcohol so it is not alcohol anymore? I cooked this for several minutes believing it would be fine, but now I am not so sure. It seems like all I did was heat the alcohol!
I suppose this could be made without the rum. Or with rum flavoring. Because I certainly do not want to be partaking of alcohol!!
