Brown Sugar Bananas

With this batch of Sauteed Bananas in a Brown Sugar Sauce, I made Sundaes. I used vanilla ice cream, fluffy whipped cream, and crunchy toasted coconut. Grab a spoon because it only takes a few minutes to whip up this sundae.

The warm brown sugar bananas melt that vanilla ice cream and the light crunch of the toasted coconut. Best Sundae Ever. This recipe is good for 6 sundaes.
