Carnival Bananas Foster Tarts

  • 1 tube of 6 raw cinnamon rolls
  • 4 bananas
  • 4 oz. caramel sauce
  • 2 tbsp. melted butter
  • Dash of nutmeg
  • ⅛ tsp. rum flavoring
  • ¼ cup salted Spanish peanuts, crushed (optional)
  • vanilla ice cream
  • Set function control to bake and preheat West Bend® Platinum Edition™ Countertop Oven to 350°F. Place each cinnamon roll on a lightly floured surface and sprinkle the top with flour. Use a rolling pin to make each cinnamon roll about ¼” in thickness and about 5” in diameter. Bake in the preheated oven until cooked through, about 8 minutes.
  • Remove and reserve the cinnamon rounds. Raise the temperature of the oven to 400°F.
  • Cut the bananas to ⅛" slices and arrange across the top of each cinnamon roll base.
  • Combine the caramel sauce, butter, nutmeg, and rum flavoring - drizzle across the top of the rolls. Bake for an additional 4 minutes, until the banana is heated through and begins to caramelize. Serve immediately with vanilla ice cream and a sprinkle of the crushed peanuts.
    • Makes 6 servings.
