Maraschino Luxardo flambéed bananas: Let 5 soup spoons of sugar run in a flaming pan till it is easily brown (caramelized). Then add 8 little rolls of butter, the juice of an orange and a shot of Luxardo maraschino. Having boiled slowly until the sauce gets easily creamy. In the meantime cut 8 bananas lengthwise, put in the sauce and have boiled 3-4 minutes after. Pouring a second shot of Luxardo maraschino over the bananas and switching on. This is done best that way by one keeping the pan a little sloping, so that the edge gets close to the flames if possible. Giving vanilla ice cream on the plates, put bananas to this and pour the excellent liqueur-sauce over the whole one.
