Bananas Foster

I really need to stop forgetting that I have a blog. I'll start with the most exciting recipe that I've been meaning to post. I could pretend that I made this vegan, but there were witnesses who know that it wasn't even close. The vanilla frozen yogurt could easily be replaced with soy ice cream and I'm thinking it might be possible to stick soy creamer in the whipped cream maker (I don't think normal people own these, just ex-Starbucks employees) and make that vegan too, although I've never liked whipped cream so I doubt vegan whipped cream would be any better.

The exciting part was the flambeing. The last time I tried to flambe, I barely got a flame, but this time I'm pretty sure the flames reached the ceiling and looked a lot more like an explosion than this picture shows

Fortunately there was no damage to the ceiling (not mine) or the hand you see inside the banana fire (not mine either).

I think I used this recipe but without the banana liqueur.
