For the Bananas Foster dipping sauce
  1. (I like to start by making the sauce first because you don't want your fried bananas to sit too long.)
  2. In a medium pan, melt butter, brown sugar, corn syrup and rum on stove over medium heat. Cook and stir constantly until sugar is completely dissolved. About 5-10 minutes once it begins to bubble. Once sugar is dissolved, remove from heat and add vanilla and cinnamon. Pour into a serving dish and set aside.
For the fried bananas
  1. Heat the oil in a medium sized saucepan to about 350 Degrees F on a candy thermometer. (You may need to adjust heat slightly as you cook)
  2. While oil is heating.
  3. Mix the crushed corn flakes, brown sugar and cinnamon together in a medium bowl.
  4. Dip banana pieces in the scrambled egg to moisten then dip in corn flake mixture to coat. Place on a clean tray and set aside.
  5. Before you begin to fry your bananas have a large cookie sheet with a large cooling rack ready. You will want to place your fried bananas on the rack to cool. (It will keep them more crisp than if you let them drain on a paper towel.
  6. Place a few bananas in the heated oil at a time. Don't overcrowd them. Let it cook for about 20-30 seconds on one side then flip and cook on the other side for the same amount of time or until they begin to brown. Keep a close eye on them so they don't burn. Use a slotted spoon to remove them to your cooling rack. Continue to cook all of your bananas. Serve immediately as they will begin to get less crispy as they sit.
