Banana Foster

1/2 c. butter
1 c. brown sugar
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1/2 c. orange juice
3 large firm bananas

Melt the butter at medium low heat in a large frying pan. Stir in the brown
sugar until it has fully absorbed the moisture of the butter. It will
become clumpy. Add the vanilla and orange juice and stir until it is
velvety and bubbly. If the mixture is not smooth enough, add a little bit
of orange juice until it is.

Slice bananas, about 1/4 inch slices. Add bananas to mixture, stir to coat
and remove from heat. If you like the bananas slightly cooked, let sit for
a few minutes.

Serve over scoops of vanilla ice cream.

I made this for my parents a couple weeks ago and they LOVED it! They brought the recipe back up to Cascade with them so they can make it for their friends:) They said it tasted like something you would get at a restaurant. It IS really yummy!!
