Nana's Banana Foster

Desserts are a course that typically comes at the end of a meal, usually consisting of sweet food. The word comes from the French language which is why Louisiana is known for great desserts. Common Louisiana recipes include King Cakes, banana foster, beignets, pralines, peanut brittle, and best of all bread pudding.

Most families in Louisiana make actually 2 or 3 for every family gathering. Our family makes sure to save room.
