Ingredients

For the Streusel:

  • ¾ cup flour
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • ¼ cup butter softened
  • 2 tablespoons walnuts finely chopped
  • 4 dashes salt
  • 3 pinches ground cinnamon

For the Bourbon Glazed Bananas:

  • 4 bananas medium to large size, peeled and cut into thick slices width-wise
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • ½ cup maple syrup
  • 1 cup Bourbon

For the Dessert:

  • 12 scoops vanilla ice cream
  • Bourbon glazed bananas
  • Streusel

Instructions

For the Streusel:

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. 
  • In a small to medium size microwavable bowl, add all of the ingredients. Using a fork, lightly mash the ingredients into the butter. Then stir together. 
  • Lay out the mixture on to a cookie sheet and bake in a preheated oven until the streusel starts to lightly brown (about 8 minutes). Remove from the oven and let cool.

For the Bourbon Glazed Bananas:

  • Heat a large skillet on medium heat and add the butter. Stir until the butter melts and starts to turn a light golden color. 
  • Add the maple syrup and stir.
  • Turn the heat off under the pan and add the Bourbon.
  • Turn the heat back on and stir.  When the mixture starts to reduce add the bananas.
  • Let cook until the mixture thickens a bit (about 5 minutes). Remove from the heat and set aside.

For the Dessert:

  • To each serving dish, add 3 scoops of ice cream.
  • Top with some of the baked streusel. Spoon the warm glazed bananas over the ice cream. 
  • Top with more baked streusel and serve.
