``Bananas Hawaiin``

My Old time favorite dessert  !  rich and delicious !

2 cup sweetened flaked coconut
4 tablespoons butter
3/4 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
4 firm bananas sliced (nice and thick not paper thin )
8 tablespoons dark rum
8 scoops vanilla ice cream ( 1 scoop per portion )

Brown coconut in the oven or in a skillet over medium heat, stirring constantly. Remove from pan; cool and set aside.

Combine the butter, brown sugar and cinnamon in a skillet. cook over low heat stirring until the sugar dissolves.
 place the bananas in the pan. When the bananas heat through ( 1 minute ) and begin to brown, carefully add the rum. Continue to cook the sauce until the rum is hot, then tip the pan slightly to ignite the rum( be very careful and keep face away as you light the rum and hold it away from you .. flames can get high )
When the flames subside,  scoop the bananas  over the ice cream in individual servings . Generously spoon warm sauce over the top of the ice cream, sprinkle with the toasted coconut and serve immediately.

Makes 8 servings.

 Tip: Scoop the balls of ice cream ahead of time and freeze until  your ready to use.
