See More Fruit Dessert Recipes Organized by TypeHere’s a wonderful fruit dessert recipe for Bananas Foster which was invented by Chef Paul Blange in 1951 at Brennan’s Restaurant in New Orleans.

Legend has it that the ghost of Chef Blange still haunts Brennan’s. According to the Haunted New Orleans Tours website:

“…Chef Paul Blange was so devoted to the restaurant that when he died, the restaurant’s menu and a knife and fork were placed across his chest…as he lay in the coffin. ‘No one ever thought Chef Blange would leave Brennan’s, and apparently, he never did,’ says Jimmy Brennan, an owner of the establishment.”

Having created a dish as delicious and deservedly famous as Bananas Foster, who could blame him?



1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 cup banana liqueur
4 bananas, cut in half lengthwise, then halved
1/4 cup dark rum
4 scoops vanilla ice cream
