Directions

Melt the butter in a large skillet with the vanilla.
Stir in the brown sugar, and add the banana slices.

    This was awesome & I'm not much of a sweets person. I tweaked it for my own use, since I didn't have espresso...subbed strong coffee and made the recipe for my family for 4 servings. But absolutely, insanely super on ice cream. KUDOS to you for coming up with this one. - 2/25/08
