Gluten Free Bananas Foster Recipe

My mother used to make Bananas Foster on a regular basis when I was growing up. It was such a simple dessert to throw together for a fun treat or last-minute entertaining. Once I had my own children, I started whipping this up on special evenings when we were looking for a sweet ending to a meal.
