The traditional rum and banana liqueur are not missed at all in this version of a famous dessert. Bananas that are bruised or too ripe for eating will still work well in this dish. Prepare it at the table in a chafing dish or skillet for added drama.
1. In a saute pan over medium-high heat, melt butter or margarine. Stir in brown sugar, orange zest, juice, and cinnamon. Stir until sugar dissolves, about 1 minute. Lay bananas cut side down in syrup. Using a spoon, drizzle syrup over bananas to coat. Cook fur minutes, until bananas begin to brown and soften.
2. Carefully transfer bananas to dessert plates, allowing 2 halves per serving. Add a large scoop of vanilla frozen yogurt to each plate, and spoon sauce over top. LAOTO/VEGAN
