I Prefer My Fruit Topped with Booze

I've shared my love of baking.  I've bragged about my zebra shoes.  Now what about the booze?

I love Captain Morgan Spiced Rum.  I love it in coke, I love it in ginger ale, I love it in hot cider, I love it in french toast (thats a recipe for another day!). I love it.

Side Note: my love of Captain Morgan ≠ a drinking problem. :)
A few rainy days ago, I was lounging on the couch reading, when my mind drifted to food (shocker).  My bank account is looking a little sad from the past two semesters of school, so I decided to create something with what I could find in the kitchen.  I don’t typically make up my own recipes, so I made something simple and it turned out to be a keeper!
How do you make drunk bananas?  Like this!:

4 tsp Captain Morgan Spiced Rum (or any spiced rum… I guess)
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp cinnamon
2 tbsp brown sugar
1 banana sliced lengthwise
Combine the spiced rum, nutmeg, vanilla, cinnamon, and brown sugar in a small bowl.  Pour over the banana.  Broil for 3-5 minutes (until a little bubbly).  
My grandmother’s wonderful suggestion:
Serve with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Make a little (or a lot) extra sauce to pour over the ice cream.

I would have taken a prettier picture…. But I ate them instead.


  1. That sounds delicious mere! I think freshman year of college made it hard for me to drink captain morgan. The silver kind is good. Can't wait for more recipes you amazing, little, shoe-loving, cook. :)

    P.s. I miss you.

  2. hahahaaha you would make something with that you alchie! Add this to the list of things to make me please :)

    I came on here to steal your banana bread receipe. Lori wants me to make it for her soon. Bananas are justttt about ready to use!

  3. Rach - I like both kinds :) maybe you'll like it in food!

    Lisa - We're going to have to start a list of what you want me to make :) or we can just pick a night we don't have classes and do one recipe a week haha
