I'll definitely be making this again but i'd recommend cutting down the quantity, sauce to ice cream ratio a tad high. Reckon this could have been split between 6 or 7 people not 4. But damned tasty all the same-28 Feb 2016

Oh wow made this today and it was yummy. I will defiantly be making this again.-25 Jan 2015

This is not good and I'll tell you why. The banana's in Bananas Foster are suppose to stay somewhat firm and not turn to mush. They shouldn't turn brown. The caramel sauce is really good though, so that alone gets the two stars.-11 Jun 2008

Slow Cooker Bananas Foster

If you like bananas, then you’ll enjoy the iconic New Orleans dessert Bananas Foster. The classic Brennan’s recipe can be adapted to make easy Slow Cooker Bananas Foster. The longer cooking time gives you caramelized flavors, almost as if you flambéed the sauce.

Bananas Foster — the world famous dessert of bananas in a butter, brown sugar and rum sauce — was created in the 1950’s by the Brennan family when New Orleans was a major entry port for bananas. The rich, simple dessert is usually served with vanilla ice cream.


4 ripe bananas, peeled, cut in half lengthwise, then halved

1/2 cup packed dark brown sugar

2 tablespoons banana liqueur (optional)

1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

3 tablespoons unsalted butter, room temp

4 scoops vanilla ice cream for serving


If needed, lightly spray your slow cooker with cooking spray. In a small bowl, whisk sugar, rum, liqueur, and cinnamon until sugar dissolves. Add this mixture and bananas to slow cooker. Cover and cook for 1-2 hours on HIGH until the bananas are softened.

Place bananas in individual serving bowls with ice cream. Whisk butter into sauce, heat through. Spoon sauce over bananas and ice cream.


  • 6 Bananas cut into 1-inch slices
  • 1/2 cup Butter
  • 1/4 cup Rum light
  • 1/4 cup Light Brown Sugar

Slow Cooker Bananas Foster is the perfect romantic dessert for you and your spouse. Of course, you can make this dessert for anyone and it does make a good addition to the buffet table at work, but you will need to make more than one pot.

So, I love bananas foster, well, anything bananas really, but there is something special about bananas, rum, and brown sugar. The taste is just oh so delicious and it makes your mouth water non-stop. I am salivating right now just thinking about how delicious these bananas are.

Okay, if you have ever made true bananas foster, it can be a pain in the butt. Especially when you have to flambé the bananas with the rum. It is hard to do and there is no lie in that statement. The good thing about this slow cooker recipe is that you can skip that step altogether. The rum will cook down for you in the slow cooker without you needing to speed up the process with fire.

This recipe is easy to make and can be tossed into the slow cooker and left alone for an hour while you enjoy your partner’s company and a big juicy porterhouse.

Before you make this recipe, I want to talk about some tips and tricks that can be used for this recipe because I want you to be able to make this your own.

First, when it comes to the bananas, you can cut this recipe in half and only make it for two people or you can double, triple it to make it for more people. You do not want to cut your bananas too thin as they will just turn into mush in the slow cooker. Therefore, cut them into at least one-inch thick pieces and make sure the bananas are ripe when you do so.

Next, I use a light rum with mine, but if you prefer a darker rum, go ahead and do it. It will not hurt the bananas or alter the recipe.

Next, if you want to add a bit more pizzazz to these bananas foster, go ahead and toss in a 1/2 cup of chopped pecans or walnuts and 1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon. These two things will elevate the flavor and really kick this dessert around the world and back again.

If you do not want to use bananas, you could substitute another fruit here. For example, you could use peaches, apples, and even cherries. Or, you could do a combination of them all.

Lastly, I do want to say that if you like the browned top of bananas foster, you can still achieve it. What you will need to do is pull the bananas foster out of the slow cooker when it is done and then place it in an oven safe dish. Sprinkle two tablespoons of granulated white sugar on top and allow to broil in the oven for 3 to 5 minutes.

I know you will love this dessert dish, so go ahead and try to make it tonight. I know I am.

The slow cooker I used for this recipe was the Bella 2.5 Quart connectible system [LINK], which was great for making a small dessert. I had to cook the recipe for about 2 hours longer due to the size and settings of this particular cooker, but it still turned out tasty. I cooked this side by side with the slow cooker s'mores brownie recipe, which was also delicious (obviously)

Serving the Banana Bread

Below are a couple of ideas on how to serve this delicious banana bread.

You can just scoop this straight out of the slow cooker and eat it like a pudding, or you can leave it to cool and slice it like bread. Either option is super delicious.

If you are serving the bread warm, then a scoop of vanilla ice cream will work very nicely with all the lovely flavors. Alternatively, some whipped cream is another great option.

I love to serve this bread with a slight bit of butter spread on it. It helps moisten the bread and adds a little bit of flavor. I highly recommend giving it a try.

Recipe Tip:

This recipe calls for Malibu rum. You can certainly omit the rum altogether and substitute coconut extract. Watkins is the brand of extracts we most often use. But, if you like and often partake in cocktails featuring Malibu rum, then by all means buy a big bottle. Or you can do what I often do. When a recipe calls for a small amount of alcohol, purchase one of those tiny bottles. They come in every type/flavor/brand imaginable and usually cost under $2.00. The amount varies somewhat but most are at least equal to a shot/jigger. If you don’t want a bottle of liquor collecting dust on a shelf in your pantry, consider purchasing a tiny bottle or two instead.

Step 1

Place the butter, brown sugar, vanilla extract, rum extract or rum, lemon juice, and cinnamon into a slow cooker. Stir the ingredients together.

Peel the bananas, slice them widthwise into 1" discs, and place the pieces in a medium-size bowl with the cornstarch. Carefully toss the bananas until they're coated with the corn starch and spoon them into the slow cooker. Carefully fold them into the butter/sugar mixture well coated. Set the slow cooker on high and cook for 1 hour.

After the cooking time ends, remove the lid and stir the bananas, being careful not to break them up. Sprinkle the chocolate chips and walnuts over top. Place the lid back on and let it sit for 5 more minutes, or until the chocolate chips are melted. Serve over ice cream.
